Serving breakfast in bed has become a Mother’s Day cliché, but as fervent foodies we think that since it’s the most important meal of the day — or so our mother’s have told us many times — breakfast deserves a second chance to prove itself as a go-to gift for mom.

For some fresh new takes on classic breakfast fare, we’ve turned to professional chefs and Firefly cookbook authors including Nicole Pisani, former head chef for Yotam Ottolenghi’s Nopi restaurant, and Christina Mouratoglou and Adrien Carré, the geniuses behind Mazi in London.

Bon appétit, maman!

Rather than turning to social media for inspiration this World Book Day, we’ve turned to the history books, or at least our own bookshelf. We’ve scoured the 8th edition of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites to compile a list of historic libraries every book lover should visit at least once.

Here are ten beautiful historic libraries to inspire your literary wanderlust.
