Join Dog Tag Bakery on Monday, October 30th at 6:30 pm as they host Chef Bill Yosses, former White House pastry chef and author of The Sweet Spot. Dog Tag Bakery is located at 3206 Grace St. NW in Washington D.C.
Bill Yosses’ baking mantra is treat sugar like salt. It is the grace note to a great dessert — where flavor is king. As the former White House pastry chef, hired by George W. Bush and kept on through the Obama years, Yosses worked closely with First Lady Michelle Obama to transform the White House kitchen into a low-suger, high on nutrients machine and was dubbed “the Crustmaster” by her husband, President Obama. It was there that he perfected the art of baking with fresh ingredients and a focus on flavor. Now he shares his baking techniques, favorite recipes and some stories in his new book, The Sweet Spot.
