I met Susan Hermann Loomis when I attended her cooking school, On Rue Tatin, outside of Paris in the spring of 2007, and that’s where I purchased her cookbook. And while it is over a decade old, it’s still available from some retailers and is astonishingly relevant in 2008.

While the recipes I cooked while visiting On Rue Tatin were not exactly the ones contained in the book, they echoed the simplicity and authenticity of Susan’s cookbook and I can tell by perusing the book that the recipes will be easy to make and delicious to taste. For an easy start, try the simple aioli with vegetables – we had this for dinner one evening in Louviers and it was suprisingly satisfying. Better yet, be adventurous and try something so very French as rabbit – I did!
