Listen to Janeane's conversation with Bill Yosses, former White House pastry chef for Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama presents a healthy, delicious collection of dessert recipes in "THE SWEET SPOT: Dialing Back Sugar and Amping Up Flavor."

The Sweet Spot
Dialing Back Sugar and Amping Up Flavor
By Bill Yosses and Peter Kaminsky


LISTEN here!

The former White House pastry chef for Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama presents a healthy, delicious collection of dessert recipes: Bill Yosses was always a phenomenal pastry chef who felt that sugar should be a grace note to a good dessert, not the foundation for one. 

After being hired as President George W. Bush’s White House pastry chef, he found himself making elaborate desserts foreign dignities with traditional sugar sculptures and fancy confections. But after being tasked by First Lady Michelle Obama to create healthier treats for her family, he discovered that when he dialed back the sugar in his recipes, his desserts were not only healthier on paper, but they actually tasted better too. 

In THE SWEET SPOT: Dialing Back Sugar and Amping Up Flavor, Bill upends the notion of “healthy” desserts and shares an inspiring collection of delectable sweets that reveal the magic that happens when you bake with less sugar.
