More About In a French Kitchen by Susan Herrmann Loomis
 
 
 
Overview
A delightful celebration of everyday life in France through the lens of the kitchens and cooking of the author's neighbors, who, while busy and accomplished, still manage to make every meal a sumptuous 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. French cooks have the savoir faire to get out of a low-ingredient bind. They are deeply knowledgeable about seasonal produce and what m lange of simple ingredients will bring out the best of their garden or local market. They are perfectly at ease with cracked bowls and little counter space.

In a French Kitchen
proves that delicious, decadent meals aren't complicated. Loomis takes lessons from busy, everyday people and offers tricks and recipes to create a meal more focused on quality ingredients and time at the table than on time in the kitchen.
