Susan Herrmann Loomis
Some Saturday morning (Seattle time) delectability is virtually in-store as Susan Herrmann Loomis joins us from Paris to talk about her newest book, Plat du Jour: French Dinners Made Easy (Countryman Press). The award-winning author of such books as In a French Kitchen, On Rue Tatin, and French Grill, Susan Herrmann Loomis has long had fans and followers awaiting this book, modeled on the French ‘plat du jour’ approach of the two-course meal.
“Plenty of alluring plates of food for cold months are what the cooking teacher Susan Herrmann Loomis, who is based in France, provides in her new book, Plat du Jour. The seasonally focused recipes are mostly center-of-the-plate fare, including chicken braised in wine with leeks and cream, scallops with celery root purée, classic beef bourguignon, Basque lamb and sweet pepper stew, and even some vegetable showstoppers like potato and chive soufflé, and endive and leek gratin. -Florence Fabricant , The New York Times.
