I met Susan Herrmann Loomis this week. Her now-classic memoir, On Rue Tatin, have been helping American readers with cooking French food with ease, and now, In a French Kitchen, reveals how to create simple French meals with ease. Loomis is an expat living in France and she takes us on a journey of her daily life, inviting us to meet the wonderful people of Louviers and their surrounding villages and towns. Susan invites us to meet Edith, who has absolutely no passion for cooking but possesses a love of food inspiring her to come up with an array of mouthwatering dishes. Then there is Nathalie, who is emotional when she remembers her mother’s Breton cooking, but then reproduces it in the kitchen.
Susan takes you to the farmers’ markets she frequents and introduces us to her Adonis-like apple vendor, Rick as well as the seafood vendor who grills his fish in the open. In a French Kitchen shares all of this and more. Enjoy reading everyday French tips, secrets, and 85 recipes you can make at home.
