Bonjour! Welcome to cooking and life in France

Cooking locally and seasonally is my philosophy – I copied it from the French who consider it the key to everything good at the table.

Until mid-June, however, I will be on sabbatical and not teaching, either in Louviers or Paris. Forgive my tardy replies to your mails, do not lose heart, I will look forward to seeing you soon. Meanwhile, I will resolutely and with delight respond to you, but I ask for your patience!

Together, we put this little French secret to work at On Rue Tatin in Normandy and Paris to make fantastic meals. We combine it with time-honored techniques and tips. We add gracious, authentic lifestyle and joie de vivre, lots of warmth, some colorful markets, laughter and voila! You’re living the French life in the heart of a beautiful French town. And all of that is what you’ll take home with you, along with a basketful of cooking wealth and confidence.

From food to wine, people to atmosphere, your time at On Rue Tatin will be unforgettable. And that is my goal for you!

“I spent the best week of my life with Susan at On Rue Tatin!” Joy, England.

“I’ve never laughed so hard nor learned so much,” Denise, Colorado

“My cooking has changed forever. I do more of it, and everything tastes so much better. Thank you, Susan!” Sheila, Iowa
