Paula Shoyer has been doing zoom events since Passover, attracting as many as 600 people to her virtual events. She teaches recipes, both demonstrations and cook- or bake-alongs, talks about strategies for meal planning, ingredient substitutions and extending the shelf life of food. She explains how the meals we plan can connect us with memories of people and places and how to use food to comfort each other even when we cannot be in the same place.

During these difficult times when many non-profit groups and their members are struggling, Paula is charging $450 per class, when she typically charges $1600 for an in-person event and asks the groups to promote the sale of Paula’s cookbooks.If you partner with another group, each group can pay $250.  She provides recipes way in advance.
