Over 160 Dairy-free Recipes from Traditional to Trendy
by Paula Shoyer
Producing flavorful and appealing kosher desserts has been a challenge in Jewish households throughout the ages. Without access to butter, cream, milk, cheese, yogurt or other dairy products, creating a tasty and memorable dessert for family and friends requires more than simple substitutions and compromises. Now pastry chef and teacher Paula Shoyer provides the inspiration and innovation to turn the age-old challenges of parve baking into delectable delights in her one-of-a-kind kosher cookbook.
The Kosher Baker is your indispensable kitchen companion to a wide range of dairy-free desserts--from family favorites and time-honored holiday classics to stylish and delicious surprises of Shoyer’s own careful creation. It even includes desserts not usually found on a kosher table, such as creamy key lime pie, luscious flan and rich tiramisu. You’ll find everything from cookies, biscotti, breads and muffins to pastries, tarts, fancy cakes and mousses. Shoyer guides you through more than 160 mouth-watering recipes and expands every non-dairy baker’s repertoire with simple, clear instructions and a friendly yet authoritative voice.
The Kosher Baker contains comprehensive information, including: tips on storage, freezing and thawing; tools; must-have ingredients; and tips and techniques. Anyone baking for those with special dietary needs, such as food allergies or diabetic concerns, will also find recipes to love. It even includes recipes for nut- and gluten-free desserts, and vegan desserts.
