Loomis contributes to many publications, including Cooking Light, Metropolitan Home, France Today, and Gastronomica. She has lived in France for nearly twenty years and operates On Rue Tatin, a cultural and culinary cooking program, from her fifteenth-century home in Louviers, France, where she lives with her two children.


"In a French Kitchen is an enticing mix of recipes, stories, and astuces (tips) Susan shares from her sun-filled kitchen in France. Few people understand French cuisine as deeply as Susan, and if you want to experience honest, French cooking - without a lot of fuss, but with great results - you'll as happy as I am to have In a French Kitchen as a companion in your kitchen."
--David Lebovitz, author of My Paris Kitchen and The Sweet Life in Paris

"With a clear, distinctive, emphatic, and personal style, Susan captures the essence of the French home cook: the search for the finest ingredients, one's personal connections to purveyors, superior organization, the creation of a comfortable repertoire of dishes, the joy as well as the triumph of putting a meal on the table."
--Patricia Wells, author of 365 Days in France and founder of At Home with Patricia Wells

"From her long experience cooking and eating with her French friends and compatriots, Susan has extracted the essence of what makes French home cooking so special. In this book she distills those lessons with warmth, clarity, and lovely recipes, so your kitchen can be French too!"
--Clotilde Dusoulier, author of The French Market Cookbook and Edible French

"This is the best trip to France you'll ever have -- walking through Louviers with Susan Loomis as your appreciative, ever-hungry guide. You'll stop in kitchen after kitchen to meet her friends and taste their glorious home cooking, you'll get a supermarket tour with special attention to the candy aisle, you'll find out why she's still dazzled by the French art of using up leftovers, and why you'll never see her in public sopping up sauce with a piece of bread. And when it's over, you'll head home with a string bag full of Susan's incomparable recipes."
--Laura Shapiro, author of Something from the Oven
"Susan Herrmann Loomis's In A French Kitchen makes me want to move right back to France, where people expect to eat well, love to eat well, and know how to do it. Susan has always been one of my favorite food writers; sharing her wisdom comes naturally to her, and I love being drawn into her life. This book will inspire us to adapt at least a little bit of the lifestyle she describes with such heartfelt eloquence. You will want to make every recipe in the book, and you'll be able to do so with little effort, just like Susan and her French friends."
--Martha Rose Shulman, author of The Simple Art of Vegetarian Cooking " In this charming memoir cum superb cookbook, Susan Hermann Loomis gets right to the heart of how the French really cook with recipes, tips and techniques of her own and from the friends she's made during twenty years of living in France. Deliciously honest, it's as delightful to read as it is to cook from."
--Alexander Lobrano, author of Hungry for Paris and Hungry for France

"There is wisdom in this book, expressed in stories and anecdotes, in advice, opinions, recipes, and shopping lists, and most of all in Susan Loomis's warmly engaging yet always sternly authoritative writing. In a French Kitchen is a crash course in cooking and living well."
- Luke Barr, author of Provence

"With practical tips, delicious recipes, and real stories from real people, In a French Kitchen is a wonderful guide for producing honest, simple, and chic meals, la fran aise. Susan Herrmann Loomis has revolutionized the way I cook for my family!"
--Ann Mah, author of Mastering the Art of French Eating

"A warm invitation to the French table... a tempting and helpful guide to delectable food."
--Kirkus Reviews
