The President's favorite sugar master will dazzle with amazing feats of molecular gastronomy at free event on Tuesday, Sept 24th...
Washington, DC - The public is invited to attend White House Executive Pastry Chef Bill Yosses' lecture on food science at Harvard University on Tuesday evening, Sept. 24th. Yosses' presentation, titled
"Elasticity: Dessert = Flavor + Texture," will include a slide show and cooking demonstration. (Above, Yosses lecturing on the same topic last year in Dublin, Ireland)
An expert in molecular gastronomy, Tuesday marks Yosses' fourth appearance in Harvard's extraordinarily popular lecture series that features world-class chefs explaining physics concepts with culinary techniques. During his previous lectures, Yosses has dished on cooking for President Barack Obama and the First Family and discussed his work with First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move! campaign as he performed dazzling feats with everyday ingredients.
The free lecture begins at 7:00 PM in Harvard's Science Center Hall C, 1 Oxford Street, Cambridge. Those hoping to catch the action should arrive early; there's typically a very long line for seats, which are offered on a first-come, first served basis. More information is on Harvard's webpages for the lecture series.

Yosses' 2012 Harvard lecture was titled "How Phase Changes Cause Deliciousness." Watch:
