Susan Herrmann Loomis
Susan Herrmann Loomis, author, journalist and chef is an internationally-recognized expert on food and an award-winning journalist/author. She takes a unique approach to her craft by combining training in journalism with a love for food and the people who produce it. Susan believes that learning about cooking and food should involve much more than recipes and techniques. She delights in meeting and introducing the personalities and customs behind the great cuisines of the world.

At Après Midi Susan spoke about her latest and 10th book, "In a French Kitchen," as well as her life as an American French chef living and working in a centuries-old house (once a convent) in the heart a small Normandy town -- Louviers. She introduced us, using a slide presentation, to the folks in her region who are responsible for the fresh produce, cheeses, wines and other culinary ingredients (such as truffles) that grace her many recipes. It was successful in virtually transporting us there and making our mouths water. As a result, Susan vowed to offer another one of her infamous Sunday Dinners around the table in her beautiful "collambage" (tudor/exposed beams) dining room very soon...so stay tuned for more information on this! You will definitely want to be there! (She's promised to make her famous Tarte Tatin and I can assure you it's THE BEST!)
