Edward Kidder (1665/66–1739) was a British 18th century pastry chef, or, as he called himself, "pastry-master," who worked in the Cheapside section of London.

Kidder is remembered for his cookbook of Receipts of Pastry and Cookery For the Use of his Scholars, The book was printed using engraved copper plates in contrast to most books of the time which used moveable types. The frontispiece showed a portrait of Kidder in a full wig and period attire.

Kidder died in 1739 at age 73.
