Celebrity Chefs Series: Learn to Cook with Paula Shoyer

Wednesday, February 16, 2022 15 Adar I 5782

8:00 PM - 9:00 PMon Zoom

In this, the first of a 3-part series, celebrity chef Paula Shoyer will teach us: 

How to Eat so you Always Have Room for Dessert

The idea is to balance a lighter, healthy meal with a rich dessert. The savory recipes are from The Healthy Jewish Kitchen Cookbook, which uses only natural, non-processed ingredients. These recipes are easy yet complex in flavor.

When showing the savory recipes, Chef explains how to take calories out of your favorite Jewish dishes. These two recipes can be a weeknight meal, first course on Shabbat, and the coleslaw goes great with any chicken or meat or BBQ.

Dry Rub Salmon - Chef will grind up a bunch of interesting spices including juniper berries and mustard seeds and roll the salmon in them and bake- the recipe has no oil! Veggie alternative: Dry Rub Grilled Tofu

Mango Coleslaw - Chef's own invention where the dressing for the cabbage has a puréed mango in it as well as jalapeno to balance the sweetness, lime, cilantro and more. 

Chocolate Babka - Chef's signature dessert! Chef will ask everyone who wants to bake along to prepare the dough in advance. She will demo the dough briefly and then make one loaf and about two dozen babka bites.
