Rue Tatin Comes to Paris

Did you not love the book On Rue Tatin by Susan Hermann Loomis? You didn’t read it, well shame on you! On Rue Tatin is to France what Under the Tuscan Sun was to Italy.

A young culinary student at La Varenne École de Cuisine was Susan Hermann Loomis’s first step into a lifelong immersion in French cuisine and culture, culminating in her permanent residency in 1994. On Rue Tatin chronicles her journey to an ancient little street in Louviers, one of Normandy’s most picturesque towns.

Chef Loomis is an author of six cookbooks including Farmhouse Cookbook, French Farmhouse Cookbook as well as Cooking on Rue Tatin. Susan owns and operates On Rue Tatin, a cooking school out of her home in Louviers.

If Louviers is inconvenient to your travels to France, do not fret, Susan is also teaching classes in Paris

One-Day Classes in Paris

Pining to cook in Paris but you have only a few days? Well, pine no more, for by popular demand, Susan Herrmann Loomis will be teaching one-day classes in Paris. Morning classes will begin with an outdoor market tour, where students will shop for fruits and vegetables, meat, bread, cheese, fish and poultry. Then students will take the ingredients into Patricia Wells's stunning cooking studio on rue Jacob in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Près. There, Susan will lead students through the preparation of a simple lunch which will include wines and cheeses from small quality producers throughout France.

For those who prefer an afternoon class, followed by dinner, Susan will meet students at Patricia's cooking studio on rue Jacob, and lead them through a series of tastings and a demonstration, followed by instructive preparation of a more complex, multi-course dinner. There will be wines and cheeses from small quality producers, and plenty of candlelight.
