In our Little Pink Book, we get recommendations for great shopping, activities, and restaurants from moms who live all over the world. Our moms have great taste, so it shouldn’t be surprising that the bakeries where many of them buy their bread are also some of the world’s most famous bakeries. We’re obsessed with food and love learning about the institutions all over the globe where people buy their carby treats.
