Paula Shoyer, local celebrity chef and baker, recently released a new cookbook, her fourth, titled “The Healthy Jewish Cookbook.” Currently a resident of Chevy Chase, Maryland, and a lawyer by training, Shoyer was living in Switzerland when she decided to go to pastry school in Paris “just for fun” and ended up with a catering business in Geneva. Her first cookbook, “The Kosher Baker,” was released in 2010, and “The Holiday Kosher Baker” was released in 2013. When her publisher requested a Passover cookbook, “The New Passover Menu” was born, and Shoyer shifted into writing savory cookbooks.
