The Food Section’s summer break starts tomorrow

The idea that Europeans don’t work in August is largely an American fantasy, much like dreamy notions of Spaniards taking daily two-hour naps and French eaters shunning supermarket bread. With inflation and summer temperatures on the rise, plenty of Europeans now prefer to take their government-mandated paid vacation in April.

(That’s assuming they can afford to leave home: The European Union in June reported that 29 percent of its citizens aren’t in a financial position to travel for one week.)
