White House Executive Pastry Chef Bill Yosses had a very busy weekend. On Sunday, he gave a cooking demonstration at the American Library Association's annual meeting in Washington, to promote his terrific new cookbook, The Perfect Finish. But just the day before, he was 250 miles up the Eastern Seaboard, in New York, with Executive Chef Cris Comerford.
The two Top Toques took a day trip to have Saturday brunch together at Purple Yam, an eatery in Brooklyn that specializes in pan-Asian cuisine. Restaurant co-owner Amy Besa has dished all the details, and released the photo, above, of the chefs dining at her restaurant (lots of other photos are on the restaurant's Facebook page, too). It's (from L), Yosses, Purple Yam chef Romy Dorotan, Comerford, and Charlie Fabella, Yosses' partner.
