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!
