Paula Shoyer, a kosher chef, baker, and cookbook author, will lead a cooking demonstration and tasting at Congregation Beth Israel in Scotch Plains on Wednesday, September 27, at 7 p.m. The shul’s sisterhood is sponsoring the program.
Ms. Shoyer will demonstrate how to prepare lentil and squash soup, beet and quinoa salad, charred cauliflower with orange vinaigrette, and Israeli chocolate rugelach. The hearty fall menu will be particularly appropriate for the weeklong celebration of Sukkot.
Paula Shoyer is a French-trained pastry chef who teaches cooking and baking classes around the world. Her recipes have been featured in newspapers, magazines, websites, and blogs and on radio and television shows across the country.

“We are so excited to welcome Paula back to our community,” Marcia Wiener, who is chairing the demonstration, said. “Paula visited us both in person and virtually during the pandemic, and we’ve had a blast each time. Paula’s cookbooks, with their delicious and innovative recipes, have become staples in kosher homes.”
