KosherEye was founded in May, 2009 by Lois Held and Roberta Scher. Together, the pair worked diligently, reaching out to the food and culinary industry and to a growing base of readers to accomplish their goal of sharing the best in kosher with the world. In March, 2013 Lois stepped back from KosherEye to pursue other interests and passions, and " to decide the next path to travel". Her talents and creativity will be missed!
The Mission of KosherEye
We invite you to get to know KosherEye. Please email us, send suggestions, come visit often, and help us discover everything new and delicious. We want to know which kitchen gadgets you find indispensable, which cookbooks you love, where you eat and what you eat! Our site is your site! As we say here in the south (we are based in Atlanta), "Y'all come see us, y'hear"!
Meet Roberta Scher, Co-Founder and Managing Editor
Roberta, originally from the Bronx, NY, moved to Atlanta at the age of 13. She grew up in a large, extended close-knit family – all celebrating holidays together - with a focus on traditional foods! Out of a kitchen as small as some closets came huge platters of traditional Polish-Jewish foods. One of her most vivid memories is that of the “soon-to-be-gefilte-fish” – the Passover “carp” coming home from the fish store in a bucket, and then swimming in the bathtub. (Yes, really!) Talk about fresh and local!
Roberta’s mother, Rose Schoen Snyder, not only was a master home cook, but a generous, kind lady who shared her delicious foods with neighbors and friends. Her very special family recipes were always greatly in demand!
Roberta’s career includes 25 years as a retailer, co-founder and owner of Paper Parlour, Atlanta’s largest party store; 10 years as a business consultant; 6 years as a kosher food columnist for The Jewish Georgian newspaper. Her professional accomplishments include national and local TV appearances, trade show speaking engagements and substantial volunteer work. She was founder and organizer of the Southeast Kosher Festival. Roberta has authored two “how to” books, including her favorite, Party Atlanta, a widely read guide to entertaining in Atlanta. She is the mother of 3 married children, and has 8 quite special grandchildren. Roberta, a graduate of Emory University, has been married to her talented husband Allan since 1966. Much to his chagrin, she attempts to prepare healthy gourmet meals for him nightly.
The KosherEye Team
Allan, Becky, Andrea and a team of contributing food and product testers, cookbook authors, chefs, brands, and of course, our readers.
Because of our multiple social media platforms, our website, and newspaper column, representatives of KosherEye are occasionally invited to complimentary meals at restaurants, offered special travel and entertainment arrangements, and receive products for review. . . all to provide background and content for features. We appreciate this privilege and consider it a serious responsibility. When we sample food and products, we share opinion and news of those that we enjoy with our readers. We strive to be totally honest in our reviews, and do not write about experiences or products that we would not recommend. If we like something, we feature it; if we don't, it will not appear on KosherEye or in any of our media outlets.
