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.

A delightful celebration of French life and the cooks who turn even the simplest meals into an occasion Even before Susan Herrmann Loomis wrote her now-classic memoir, On Rue Tatin, American readers have been compelled by books about the French’s ease with cooking. With In a French Kitchen, Loomis—an expat who long ago traded her American grocery store for a bustling French farmer’s market—demystifies in lively prose the seemingly effortless je ne sais quoi behind a simple French meal. One by one, readers are invited to meet the busy people of Louviers and surrounding villages and towns of Loomis’s adopted home, from runway-chic Edith, who has zero passion for cooking—but a love of food that inspires her to whip up an array of mouthwatering dishes—to Nathalie, who becomes misty-eyed as she talks about her mother’s Breton cooking, then goes on to reproduce it. Through friends and neighbors like these, Loomis learns that delicious, even decadent meals don’t have to be complicated. Are French cooks better organized when planning and shopping? Do they have a greater ability to improvise with whatever they have on hand when unexpected guests arrive? The answer to both is: Yes. But they also have an innate understanding of food and cooking, are instinctively knowledgeable about seasonal produce, and understand what combination of simple ingredients will bring out the best of their gardens or local markets. Thankfully for American readers, In a French Kitchen shares the everyday French tips, secrets, and eighty-five recipes that allow them to turn every meal into a sumptuous occasion.

“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.

From easy weeknight meals to more elaborate Sunday dinners, learn the recipes and cooking style from the "other" French cuisine---the one that forms the foundation of the Mediterranean diet and celebrates local, fresh and light. Cuisine NiCoise is designed with olive oil, rather than butter and cream; is light, rather than bathed in rich sauces. And it uses fresh, locally sourced produce. Hillary Davis---food writer, cooking instructor, creator of the popular food blog MarchE Dimanche, and resident of the NiCoise area for over eleven years---introduces us to Cuisine NiCoise the cooking from the south of France, from the region surrounding the city of Nice, in her compelling new cookbook. Filled with information, tips, stories and recipes---Cuisine NiCoise is a complete guide with more than 100 recipes and gorgeous color photographs. Praise for Cuisine NiCoise: "Bright colors, sun-splashed days, fun, sybaritic pleasures--Hillary Davis captures on the plate everything delightful we associate with Nice. This food is extraordinarily fresh, delicious, and a feast for the eye as well. What a joy to be able to bring the good life into your own kitchen!" --Frances Mayes, best-selling author, Under The Tuscan Sun, The Tuscan Sun Cookbook "I am impressed! Hillary Davis has a unique perspective on cooking for which she makes a persuasive case in her new book. She believes that we learn how to cook not just from books but also from family, friends, restaurants, markets, and even from the dishes our food is served upon and the pots in which it's cooked." ---Paula Wolfert, best-selling author, The Cooking of Southwest France, The Food of Morocco "With this ode to NiCoise cooking, put together lovingly by Hillary Davis, you will bathe in the aromas of the NiCoise countryside, from the warm pungency of wild herbs, to the sweet, fresh melons and peaches at farmers' markets dotted throughout the countryside. Ms. Davis fell in love with the hilltop village of Bar-Sur-Loup, where she lived, cooked, ate and absorbed all that was around her. In Cuisine NiCoise she has made liberal use of everything she experienced and tasted; she has filled the book with tips and traditions; she has opened up a sun-kissed world for all to share. All of it will make you want to hop on an airplane and land in the center of the NiCoise countryside, at a table set for lunch! Photos by Steven Rothfeld make the book come alive with color. Bravo!" ---Susan Herrmann Loomis, author of On Rue Tatin "I think this book might just be the next best thing to living on the French Riviera! It is more than just a beautiful book filled with glorious tales and remarkable recipes. It is a love story of food, tradition and culture."---Monica Bhide, author Modern Spice: Inspired Indian Flavors for the Contemporary Kitchen "Her recipes are simple and appealing, evidence of her love for the food and customs of this very special place." --Michele Scicolone, best-selling author The Mediterranean Slow Cooker, The French Slow Cooker, The Italian Slow Cooker, 1000 Italian Recipes Hillary Davis "take a bow!!" --Monica Bhide
