Chocolate, On Rue Tatin

Cooking On Rue Tatin
with Susan Loomis and David Lebovitz

For this very special week, I’ll be joining cookbook author Susan Loomis for a week of cooking and baking at her gorgeous and famous home on Rue Tatin (yes, she lives on Rue Tatin!) in the village of Louviers. Susan has written extensively about her life in Normandy and her latest book, Cooking At Home On Rue Tatin has quickly become one of my new favorite cookbooks.

During the week with Susan and me, we’ll be cooking up a storm in her professional kitchen, creating menus and elaborate multi-course meals featuring local ingredients as well as learning cooking secrets and techniques as we go.
We’ll be focusing on chocolate this week, and I’ll conduct special seminars during your visit. We’ll have a focused tasting and evaluation as well as learn how-to tempering chocolate, create wonderful chocolate confections, and baking classic French chocolate desserts.

We’ll also visit an outdoor market in the medieval village of Le Neubourg that is simply amazing, as well as conduct private tastings of goat cheese and wine with local producers and specialists.

More information can be found by visiting On Rue Tatin.
This week is certain to sell-out as group size is limited; reserve your space now.

    Chocolate tasting in Paris! Tempting. I’m going to be in London this week for the first time. How far could Paris be? :) Any advice on chocolate/pastry must-haves in London?

    Hi Ben: I’ve only been to London once (and I live only 2 1/2 hrs away!). You may want to check out Rococo chocolate, it’s very British. There’s a England-based site, that may have information, & perhaps a few other readers here will chime in with suggestions?

    Thanks, David, I’ll follow up on those. Are there any openings left for the Thursday tasting? Any idea what a day trip from London to Paris runs?

    Ben: You’ll have to contact the organizers, but I’m sure once you see the last-minute Eurostar fares, you’ll opt to stay in London. We’ll toast you with a glass of wine and, of course, some chocolate. David

    I am catching up on the important things in life. i.e. reading blogs. If you haven’t found “the German fellow who made the amazingly-good, dense and grainy bread that he brought to the BBQ at Meg’s last night..” Let me know. I have names, numbers, address and a good personal relationship with said man.
