Very good, though not as good as the first one but that is probably because I love reading about renovations and the first book had a lot of that. As part of our holiday to Brittany, France, we planned to spend several days in Normandy, so when I spotted Tarte Tatin on the library shelf it seemed a perfect book to take with me to get a flavour of the region This second book, I discovered, follows on from Loomis first book, On Rue Tatin, which I am now hoping to track down and read as well On Rue Tatin tells of how cook and writer Susan Loomis and her artist husband moved from the USA to Normandy and settled into an ancient property in need of renovation in the village of Louviers The village is close to the cathedral city of Rouen, famed in particular for its connections with Joan of Arc Tarte Tatin has plenty of local colour and character in its tales of village life, with tales of shopping in the local market and enjoyable meals shared with a jolly sounding group of friends With the fami EPub, Tarte Tatin Author Susan Herrmann Loomis This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book Tarte Tatin, Essay By Susan Herrmann Loomis Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please read And Make A Refission For [ read Online Tarte Tatin Á presidents PDF ] by Susan Herrmann Loomis é You I found this book amongst the stacks of friendly reading at our friend s holiday home in France It looked like light reading one expat s insight into France, with the added bonus of being about food What could be better for an American English expat on holiday, right No Not right There is food here, certainly The book is at its best when the author begins waxing eloquent on food markets and meals she has prepared And indeed, I liked the concept for the book, intermingling the pulse of good food with observations about daily French life But in the end, the reality of this book fell short of its ideal This was not a book of astute, humorous, or insightful observations This was a small minded woman s snarky diary At too many points in the book I paused and asked myself, who publishes this kind of stuff I see from the I really enjoyed reading about the author s life in France with her family as she develops a cooking school in a small town not far from Paris Her descriptions in each chapter enable the reader to visualise the town, it s inhabitants, it s cycleways and other elements Not to forget the food descriptions which make the preparations look so easy. As an American, her perspective on this subject is different, and this lends interest to her storytelling. I agree with Harrowagenda21 I bought this book today to start reading in my lunch break There is just something odiously complacent about this woman She also raves about foie gras, displaying a total lack of concern or compassion for animals I find her frequent references to being American rather sad I have American cousins and friends and they don t come across like this at all She is probably perfectly nice in person but I was repelled by the way she came across and didn t want to read any of her book. ↠´ Tarte Tatin ☆ The sequel to On Rue Tatin, as interesting as the first More about living, working, and raising a family in Louviers, France, including the establishment of the author s cooking school and great recipes.
I always enjoy reading books like this when holidaying in France myself I love French life and food myself so I like to read what others think about it. Sometimes, I cannot hold my tongue. When I started to read this book, I came across a review on goodreads First, it revealed that Susan and her husband, Michael, had divorced since the book was published This disgruntled me, as it was a bit of a spoiler But, then, the rest of the review really chapped me Now, I don t know Susan, but I read this book, after reading this review, and found that I could not DISagree with the review The goodread stranger s review is below, in quotes, my comments are beneath the quotes I read this book having lived in France and the US, both foreign countries for me and I speak both languages That is swell for you The book was really quite insufferable at times it is an extended diary with a few themes corresponding to the author s preoccupations, and very much like On Rue Tatin it lacks a narrative structure, or any recurrent t Vreselijk Slecht geschreven, zelfingenomen schrijfster.
