FIVE THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT THE NEWLY REBORN HOTEL LUTETIA, PARIS 1. It was first opened in 1910 by the famous Le Bon Marché department store, an icon of the Left Bank, for use by its important clients; it’s the area’s only historic grand hotel.2.

RISING FROM THE ASHES A year after the devastating Northern California wildfires that burned through some 99,148 hectares and destroyed thousands of homes around Sonoma and Napa Counties, the food and wine meccas are getting back on their feet. Given the area around Sonoma is largely credited with inventing the whole farm-to-table movement, it makes sense that it’s establishments like SingleThread and Farmhouse Inn that are luring food lovers and wine connoisseurs back to the area. Husband and wife team Kyle and Katina Connaughton epitomise the groundswell of positivity in Sonoma right now: at their SingleThread farm (singlethreadfarms.com), Katina tends to a greenhouse, loamy fields, chicken coops, an heirloom fruit orchard, olive trees, beehives, and cattle paddock all surrounded by cabernet sauvignon, zinfandel, and chardonnay vines, while 11 kilometres…
