White House executive pastry chef and giver of TED talks Bill Yosses is leaving his post with the first family. The New York Times reports that Yosses is moving to New York City "with an aim to teach children and adults about eating better."

Yosses, who was originally hired by Laura Bush in 2007, tells the NYT that he hopes to create "'a group and foundation of like-minded creative people' for promoting delicious food as healthy food" that is "devoted to food literacy from the bottom up." Yosses is leaving the White House this June, and there's no word yet as to who will be taking his place there. He called it a "bittersweet decision."
