Weekend Links: Week 23

place vendôme weekend links week 23

I’m really excited about Week 23 of Weekend Links. There are so many wonderful articles from a six-year-old WWII French Resistance agent finally getting recognition to a few tributes to the recently deceased François Catroux and a little bit of hope and good news with regards to the COVID-19 numbers in France. My favorite article of the week is an interview with Casa Lopez’s Pierre Sauvage – it’s filled with great tidbits from his signature dish (Reblochon cheese pie – yes please), to his top five books and what makes a house a home. Enjoy!
