9780060758172: Cooking at Home on Rue Tatin

In Cooking At Home On Rue Tatin award-winning cookbook author and professional chef Susan Herrmann Loomis takes cooks and readers on a friendly and delicious tour of French home cooking, from the refined to the rustic. In this collection of Susan's favorites, readers and cooks will learn the tricks and tips of entertaining like the French, get clear instruction on the basics of French cooking, and be introduced to the new and exciting array of multicultural cuisines that are rapidly entering the realm of classic French. You will meet Susan's inspirations, from neighbors in her small town to starred chefs, as they share their own home recipes, which have become standard fare on Susan's own table.

Susan invites the busy home cook to relax, unwind, and enjoy the tastes, textures, and aromas of simple yet often sophisticated French fare. The book is filled with contemporary recipes, such as Tuna with Ginger Yogurt Sauce and Cilantro Coulis, Spiced Fish Fillet in Parchment Paper, Skate with Potato Puree; classics, such as Soupe au Pistou, Coq au Vin, Pot-au-Feu, and Quiche Lorraine; and cross-cultural dishes, such as Chorba (Algerian Ramadan soup), Chicken Soup with Tamarind, and Lamb and Dried Plum Tagine with Toasted Almonds. What sets apart all of these recipes, from the contemporary to the classic, is Susan's clear presentation, which makes them so easily accessible.

Susan's food, along with her warm hospitality, puts people at ease and makes them feel as if they are honored guests or members of Susan's own family.

About the Author:

Susan Herrmann Loomis is the author of eight books, including six cookbooks. She is a regular contributor to Bon Appétit, Cooking Light, Food & Wine, and the New York Times. She owns and operates On Rue Tatin, a cooking school in Normandy, France.

From Publishers Weekly:

At first glance, Loomis's eighth cookbook may look like just another collection of French staples explained by a savvy American cook. Upon closer inspection, it's clear the work, while based largely on traditional French fare, reflects the ever evolving nature of Gallic cuisine, with its strong African and Asian influences. The author, who runs On Rue Tatin, a cooking school in Normandy, has met many people during her 15-plus years in France, and she shares their recipes here. The result is a pleasing French cookbook, with recipes for traditional Leek and Bacon Quiche, Savory Beef Stew, and Cherry Clafoutis appearing alongside instructions for Chorba (an Algerian vegetable and lamb soup), Franco-Vietnamese Spring Rolls, and Chicken with Turmeric and Coconut Milk from the island of Réunion. There are some time-consuming dishes, such as A Homemaker's Chicken Liver Terrine, which takes at least 24 hours to make, and the ingredient lists can be intimidating (some recipes require as many as 17 ingredients). Only the most intrepid cooks will attempt Gazpacho with Mustard Ice Cream, or Frosty Lentils (which entails topping barely cooked lentils with shaved frozen cucumbers and cornichons). Those bored with straightforward French cooking (ce n'est pas possible!) and those with more adventurous tastes stand to benefit most from this atypical French cookbook. Illus.
