About the Author

Paula Shoyer was disappointed with kosher desserts that tasted like cardboard, so she wrote The Kosher Baker: Over 160 Dairy-Free Recipes from Traditional to Trendy (Brandeis) to start a kosher baking revolution. A former attorney, Paula graduated from the Ritz Escoffier pastry program in Paris, France, and now teaches French and Jewish baking classes in the DC area, where she lives. Paula  conducts large-scale baking demonstrations all across the United States and Canada, and her recipes have been featured in numerous publications and websites. She is a contributing editor to several kosher websites, such as and, as well as magazines, including Joy of Kosher, Whisk, and Hadassah. Paula has appeared on Food Network's Sweet Genius and on TV news shows, such as WUSA9 in D.C.; NBC Washington and Baltimore; San Diego Living; and on the national shows Lunchbreak and Daytime. Paula also edited the popular cookbooks Kosher by Design Entertains and Kosher by Design Kids in the Kitchen (both Mesorah publications). Paula lives in Chevy Chase, MD with her husband and four teenagers.
