Further adventures on life in a small French town from Susan Loomis, cookery book writer and author of 'On Rue Tatin'. 'On Rue Tatin' was a delightful discovery, and every reader asked for more. The life on Rue Tatin seemed like a dream fulfilled. Now in 'Tarte Tatin', Susan Loomis shares with us how she, her husband and two children settled into life in a small French town, learnt about their neighbours and how to be accepted as inhabitants of the town. With her son going to a French school and her husband finding work in the town, Susan Loomis discovers the joys of the French lifestyle the markets and the food in particular but also some of the difficulties, particularly for those who are not born French. The creation of the long dreamt-of cookery school is a story of great appeal everyone who has ever thought of starting their own small business will enjoy the ups and downs of their enterprise, and long to go to Rue Tatin.
