Paula Shoyer - Not Your Typical Pastry Chef

Paula's story is so good we will let her tell it in her own words. Hold on to your seat though!

My story is one you've probably heard before. Young Jewish woman is pre-med in college, ends up in law school after a chemistry accident. After a few years of glamorous environmental law, she was off to Geneva and finds herself at the UN listening to terrorists discuss human rights. How to top that? Pastry school in Paris was the obvious choice. A catering business in Geneva, taught a few cooking classes in French and then came back and started a cooking school in the D.C. area. Oh yeah, had four kids at some point. Now I travel the country teaching kosher cooking and baking and proving that Kosher food can be beautiful, elegant and delicious. Along the way, I set out to start a kosher baking revolution. Join me.

Paula Shoyer is a pastry chef who owns and operates Paula's Parisian Pastries Cooking School in Chevy Chase, Maryland. She received her pastry diploma from the Ritz Escoffier Ecole de Gastronomie Francaise in Paris, France in 1996. She is the author of The Kosher Baker: 160 dairy-free desserts from traditional to trendy.  She is the editor of Susie Fishbein's two popular Kosher cookbooks: Kosher by Design Entertains and Kosher by Design Kids in the Kitchen.
