Synopsis

Tarte Tatin More of La Belle Vie on Rue Tatin by Susan Herrmann Loomis

Further adventures on life in a small French town from Susan Loomis, cookery book writer and author of On Rue Tatin. On Rue Tatin was a delightful discovery, and every reader asked for more. The life on Rue Tatin seemed like a dream fulfilled. Now in Tarte Tatin, Susan Loomis shares with us how she, her husband and two children settled into life in a small French town, learnt about their neighbours and how to be accepted as inhabitants of the town. 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 creation of the long dreamt-of cookery school is a story of great appeal - everyone who has ever thought of starting their own small business will enjoy the ups and downs of their enterprise, and long 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
