Susan Loomis arrived in Paris in the 1980s with little more than a student loan and the contents of a suitcase to sustain her. But what began as an apprenticeship at La Varenne Ecole de Cuisine evolved into a lifelong immersion in French cuisine and culture, culminating in permanent residency in 1994. This book chronicles her journey to this ancient little street in the midst of Louviers and describes how she came to call it home. Loomis recalls the restoration she and her husband performed on the dilapidated convent they chose for their new residence. As its ochre and azure floor tiles emerged, challenges outside the dwelling mounted. From squatters to a surly priest next door, along with a close-knit community wary of outsiders, Loomis tackled the social challenges head-on, through persistent dialogue - and baking. This book features 50 recipes that evoke the essence of the region, such as Apple and Thyme Tart, and main courses including Duck Breast with Cider and Braised Chicken in White Wine with Mustard.
