It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since “normal.” I’m honestly trying not to think about it too much, because in France I don’t feel like the light at the end of the tunnel is as bright as it is in the US. Weekend Links Week Eleven features articles about the current situation in France, as well as fun clips of the Chanel show, candidates for France’s favorite village in 2021, how to smell like Picasso, and several tours of gorgeous Parisian spaces.
Spring was in the air in Paris but now we’re back to winter weather. Weekend Links Week Ten still has a bit of spring inspiration from a list of wines to drink in the spring, photos from Ines de la Fressange and Uniqlo’s French-inspired spring collection, an escape to French photographer François Halard’s Provence home and more. I hope you enjoy!
Weekend Links Week Nine breaks my record for the number of articles – there are 47 this week. You won’t want to miss Air France’s new safety video that will bring you to Paris, Versailles, the South of France and more as well as colorized 4k footage from Paris in the 1920s. I recommend settling in with a cup of coffee or even a glass of wine and enjoying!
Week eight of Weekend Links has a little bit of everything, again. There are quite a few recipes from Apollonia Poilâne’s croissant to a buttery tarte tatin. Some of my favorites include the UNESCO recognition “battle” between the baguette and Parisian rooftops, the search for centuries-old oak wood to rebuild the Notre Dame spire, a story on Burger King France handing out bags of potatoes to anyone who wanted them, and the best of Southern France according to a local winemaker. I hope you enjoy!
I’m very excited about this edition of Weekend Links. There are lots of interesting articles, so many that it’s nearly impossible for me to pick favorites. Standouts include a tribute to Julia Child and her favorite Paris restaurant, an absolutely stunning Parisian mansion decorated by Jacques Grange, how to view the Bayeux Tapestry virtually, a French nun celebrating her 117th birthday with red wine, and the story of a black female Champagne producer. I hope you enjoy Weekend Links Week Seven and have a great weekend!
