What People are Saying About This

Levana Kirschenbaum

“Paula Shoyer is a baker after my own heart. She takes you around her deceptively simple and luscious world of desserts, and busts the old myths that desserts take forever to make, or that they can't be good unless they have butter or cream in them. Paula understands perfectly that less is more, from short and sensible list of ingredients to streamlined instructions, pure extracts and flavors, and elegant and spare presentations. In short, her recipes are ideally suited for the home cook!”

Joan Nathan

“A huge array of recipes for every taste, occasion, and dietary need. Bravo to Paula.”

P.J. Hamel

“The Kosher Baker is a fascinating look into the world of Jewish baking. While an incredible resource for those who eat kosher, it’s equally compelling for anyone interested in a tempting array of sweets and breads, from fast-and-easy to elegant party fare. Two thumbs up!”

Susie Fishbein

“A must-have for your kosher culinary library. Paula mixes great flavor combinations with great taste. You'll want to bake your way through the pages.”

Paula has given us a book that has doable recipes and makes it easy to follow directions.  She has three levels of recipes which are time dependent.  If you need to make a cake quickly, you go to the first section and if you have  more time try another of the two section for some fancier or more demanding recipes.   The fact that this is non dairy makes it easier for the Kosher consumer. My only criticism is that there is not a photo for each recipe and I love tons of pictures.
