About Paula Shoyer

Paula Shoyer was disappointed with kosher desserts that tasted like cardboard, so she wrote The Kosher Baker to start a kosher baking revolution. A former attorney, she graduated from the Ritz Escoffier pastry program in Paris and now teaches French and Jewish baking classes in the D.C. area. Shoyer has appeared on LunchbreakDaytime, and Food Network’s Sweet Genius. She lives in Chevy Chase, MD, with her husband and four teenagers. @kosherbaker
