White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses, who was first hired for the job by Laura Bush in 2007 and whose confectionary duties have been somewhat curtailed in the current administration, married his partner in Washington, D.C., last week.
Yosses, 57, married Charlie Fabella Jr. at the Moultrie Courthouse Tuesday, with the announcement gracing the New York Times Sunday Weddings/Celebrations section.
With a culinary resume that includes tenures at New York elite restaurants Tavern on the Green and Montrachet, Yosses has "broadened" his responsibilities in the Obama administration to include beekeeping and tending the White House garden -- this a result of first lady Michelle Obama's mandate that desserts would not be de rigueur at family meals, the Times reports.
A native of the Philippines, Fabella Jr., 38, is a special education teacher at Public School 54 in Queens, N.Y.
