A French cooking class + Asheville, N.C. — What could be a better pairing?
You might have seen her on “Good Morning America” or heard her on NPR. Susan Hermann Loomis is the author of nine award-winning books, including the best-selling “French Farmhouse Cookbook.” She was born in America, but lives and has a very famous cooking school in Normandy, France, (so her classes are easily understandable for Americans).  She’s coming to Asheville, N.C., Sept. 11-13 for a three-day cooking class that will also explore the wonderful artisan food producers of Asheville. The price for the three-day class — which includes three hands-on classes, three meals, and a field trip with samples — is $1,200. The cost for an evening class is $295.
