Description

Further adventures on life in a small French town from Susan Loomis, cookery book writer and author of "On Rue Tatin". In this title, Susan Loomis shares with us how she, her husband and two children settled into life in a small French town, got to know neighbours and learned how to be accepted as inhabitants of the community, peppering her anecdotes with recipes. With her son going to a French school and her husband finding work in the town, Susan Loomis discovers the joys of the French lifestyle - the markets and the food in particular - but also some of the difficulties, particularly for those who are not born French. The story of the creation of her long-awaited dream cookery school should appeal to anyone who has ever thought of starting their own small business and anyone who longs to go to Rue Tatin.

Reviews

Praise for On Rue Tatin: 'Enchanting escapism - Nigella Lawson in Peter Mayle-land.' Daily Mail 'Where many writers merely love France, Susan Loomis knows it - its smells, people and manners...she shows that she is as natural a writer as she is a chef.' New York Times 'Slips down a treat, like Normandy cream - smooth and sweet with a touch of acidity. A pleasure from start to finish.' Daily Mail
