White House Pastry Chef Leads Garden Tour
White House pastry chef Bill Yosses leads a tour of the White House garden, composter and beehive on the south lawn. While the White House garden is not certified organic, they do use organic growing methods, Yosses said. The #1 question from visitors? Yosses said they give lots of tours to school kids and most of them ask if they can taste what’s growing. In the summertime, Yosses said Sam Kass always prepares something from the garden for the First Family’s table. Any crops they cannot use fresh are either pickled or donated to local shelters.
