French Cooking Classes with Susan Herrmann Loomis - On Rue Tatin

The Los Angeles Class is currently SOLD OUT.  If you’d like to be put on a waiting list, let us know!  Contact

Join Susan, writer and cooking school owner, for three glorious days of cooking in sunny Studio City, Los Angeles! The class will be November 1-3, 2017.

We’ll cook with the finest local and seasonal ingredients, and as part of our hands-on class we’ll practice French techniques, learn how to combine ingredients, flavors, and textures a la française. Whether it be roasted fish with pearls of lime, grilled baby eggplant with herbed fresh cheese, a sorbet of blood oranges with pistachios, gorgeous flaky pastry filled with perfectly ripened berries, or heirloom tomato “tubes,” you’ll walk away from your three days filled with knowledge and confidence.

Once the cooking is done, we’ll enjoy meals à la française.  You’ll love appetizers in the kitchen, multi-course meals at the table accompanied by different local wines, a bite of cheese, a taste of dessert, and a sip of coffee to follow.

Three delicious days in Los Angeles –  $1200, November 1-3, 2017.

Places are limited. Price is exclusive of lodging; a list of wonderful places to stay will be sent to you on request.
