"In On Rue Tatin, Susan Herrmann Loomis - an expat who long ago traded her American grocery store for a bustling French farmers' market - introduced us to her French life. Now she shares the French kitchen with us, providing everyday tips, secrets, and eighty-six recipes that come straight from French cooks, showing how they turn every meal into a sumptuous occasion and proving that dishes don't have to be complicated to be delicious. French cooks don't rely on expensive gadgets, vast counter space, or fancy cookware. Instead, they make do with their old cracked bowls, dull knives, and small kitchens because, for them, the real treasure is time at the table. Whether it be a weeknight supper or a long Sunday lunch, they take joy in eating and spending time together, and they understand that preparation is the path to getting there."

Susan Loomis arrived in Paris twenty years ago with little more than a student loan and the contents of a suitcase to sustain her. But what began then as an apprenticeship at La Varenne École de Cuisine evolved into a lifelong immersion in French cuisine and culture, culminating in permanent residency in 1994. On Rue Tatin chronicles her journey to an ancient little street in Louviers, one of Normandy’s most picturesque towns. With lyrical prose and wry candor, Loomis recalls the miraculous restoration that she and her husband performed on the dilapidated convent they chose for their new residence. As its ochre and azure floor tiles emerged, challenges outside the dwelling mounted. From squatters to a surly priest next door, along with a close-knit community wary of outsiders, Loomis tackled the social challenges head-on, through persistent dialogue–and baking. On Rue Tatin includes delicious recipes that evoke the essence of this region, such as Apple and Thyme Tart, Duck Breast with Cider, and Braised Chicken in White Wine and Mustard. Transporting readers to a world where tradition is cherished, On Rue Tatin provides a touching glimpse of the camaraderie, exquisite food, and simple pleasures of daily life in a truly glorious corner of Normandy.

“When it comes to France, you don’t normally think of barbecue, but Susan Hermann Loomis has channeled the grilling of her native America through the cuisine of her adoptive France in 125 stylish, bold-flavored recipes that will inspire you to fire up your grill.” —Steven Raichlen, Project Smoke Barbecue was invented in France? So says renowned cookbook author Susan Herrmann Loomis. When the Gauls were racing through lush forests in what is now Brittany, Normandy, and the Loire Valley, hunting wild boar, deer, and rabbit, they’d return to the village, build a fire, and split their prize from barbe a queue (head to tail) for roasting. Today, the French are still great barbecuers, though over the centuries they’ve refined their skills and borrowed methods from other cuisines: the grill from the US, the plancha from Spain, the mechoui from North Africa. Recipes include: Camembert Burgers Steak with Smoky Olives Honey Grilled Pork Chops Grilled Pistachio, Almond, and Honey Stuffed Apricots French Grill features dishes for every occasion using ingredients that any American cook can easily find, tips on how to buy the best ingredients, and French grilling anecdotes throughout.
