Tales and Traditions of Everyday Home Cooking in France
Author: Susan Herrmann Loomis
Category: Biography & Autobiography
A delightful celebration of French life and the cooks who turn even the simplest meals into an occasion Even before Susan Herrmann Loomis wrote her now-classic memoir, On Rue Tatin, American readers have been compelled by books about the French’s ease with cooking. With In a French Kitchen, Loomis—an expat who long ago traded her American grocery store for a bustling French farmer’s market—demystifies in lively prose the seemingly effortless je ne sais quoi behind a simple French meal. One by one, readers are invited to meet the busy people of Louviers and surrounding villages and towns of Loomis’s adopted home, from runway-chic Edith, who has zero passion for cooking—but a love of food that inspires her to whip up an array of mouthwatering dishes—to Nathalie, who becomes misty-eyed as she talks about her mother’s Breton cooking, then goes on to reproduce it. Through friends and neighbors like these, Loomis learns that delicious, even decadent meals don’t have to be complicated. Are French cooks better organized when planning and shopping? Do they have a greater ability to improvise with whatever they have on hand when unexpected guests arrive? The answer to both is: Yes. But they also have an innate understanding of food and cooking, are instinctively knowledgeable about seasonal produce, and understand what combination of simple ingredients will bring out the best of their gardens or local markets. Thankfully for American readers, In a French Kitchen shares the everyday French tips, secrets, and eighty-five recipes that allow them to turn every meal into a sumptuous occasion.

Die Römer bezeichneten die Vertreter auswärtiger Mächte, mit denen sie kooperierten, vorzugsweise als 'Freunde' - unabhängig davon, ob es sich um Könige oder Gesandte von Städten, um Vertragspartner oder ehemalige Kriegsgegner handelte. Welche Auswirkungen hatten diese diplomatischen Umgangsformen? Welche Verbindlichkeit kam der 'amicitia populi Romani' zu? Wie entwickelten sich diese im Laufe der Jahrhunderte? Welche kurz- und langfristigen Auswirkungen hatten derartige Freundschaften auf die römische Politik und auf die Gesellschaft der nichtrömischen Partner? Der Band nähert sich diesen Fragen mit einer Reihe von regionalen Vertiefungen, chronologischen Längsschnitten und systematischen Betrachtungsweisen. Dabei wird das gesamte Spektrum der althistorischen Quellengattungen zu Grunde gelegt. Lateinische und griechische Texte werden mit deutscher oder englischer Übersetzung zitiert.
