The Baguette Shortage
It was a sad summer for Baguette fans in France! For the first time in centuries, almost all Parisian bakeries closed for the summer. Just last year the French government waived a law from the 1790s ruling that bakers must notify authorities in advance before taking vacations, in order to ensure that the city has enough fresh baguettes. But now, as a result, bakers have closed up shop for summer vacations! And the city is left suffering the consequences. Once customer, Aude Debout told the Financial Times.“I find myself buying more sliced bread from the supermarket, and that’s not even really bread.” http://cdn.app.theweek.com/editions/com.dennis.theweek.issue.issue735/data/37133_f785287f3c91d80bd446557282ff02d9/web.html
