Out chef Bill Yosses serves us delicacies and a tasty Bear in ‘Baker’s Dozen’

The former White House Executive Pastry Chef to President Obama heads up Hulu’s latest sweet treat — along with a beary tasty-looking Bear contestant in the premiere episode!

Best known as co-author of the book Desserts For Dummies and for being the White House Executive Pastry Chef from 2007 to 2014, Yosses is also the owner of the pastry company Perfect Pie, which is based in New York City. His 2011 wedding to Charlie Fabella Jr inspired the Medium headline, “Gay-Loving Obama’s Gay Pastry Chef Maries A Gay.” (Side note: It was actually Laura Bush who hired Yosses).
