This week I’m loving the list of six places to have high tea in Paris, a tour of an expertly redesigned historic French manor, a description of this strange August in Paris, a bit on the ‘champagne wars’ between growers and producers, and a tour of fake buildings in Paris. There are fourteen great articles in Weekend Links Week Nine!
It’s a very steamy day in Paris today and looks like it will be through mid-week next week. I’ve been lucky enough to dodge all 100+ degree days so far, so I guess it’s time to experience a taste of the canicule. Some of my favorite finds from this week came from the Jullouville marché in Normandy, but I must say the crown jewel this week was the summer nocturne in the Musée Rodin garden.
I can’t believe it’s August! I’ve rounded up twelve articles for Weekend Links Week Eight. It’s an especially festive and summery list with subjects like the best beaches in France, a selection of cocktail recipes from legendary Côte d’Azur hotels, a look inside a Parisian hôtel particulier for sale for $19 million, and an unlikely friendship between an 88-year-old Olivia de Havilland and a 22-year-old living in Paris.
I can hardly believe July has already come and gone. There’s a big heatwave moving through Paris today (102°F and almost 40°C) so we were lucky to escape to Normandy. After spending so much time there this year it felt like going home in a way, especially with Dalton. I’m excited to cook in a bigger kitchen, be outdoors as much as possible, and of course enjoy some of my Normandy favorite foods. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France include the gorgeous Palais Royal Roses, the best frites (and the best way to eat them) in Paris, a festive summer dinner table, the perfect tomato tart recipe and more!
I’m not sure how it’s possible that it’s already this time of the week again, but Weekend Links Week Seven is here! I spent most of the week on the beyond gorgeous island of Port Cros and can’t wait to share more from my time there soon. Of the sixteen articles this week, my favorites include the best high jewelry collections from Paris Couture Week, a list of films based in Paris, a French Champagne house’s decision to open a winery in the UK, and a tour of a beyond gorgeous Parisian apartment.
