Chef Stuart Brioza loves this book for its celebration of breads.
Getting a chef to pick a favorite cookbook is like asking a parent to choose her most-loved child. But F&W pressed great cooks around the country to reveal their top picks of all-time.

The Book: Flatbreads & Flavors by Naomi Duguid and Jeffrey Alford, 2008
“The book is sort of like a wanderlust adventure through rural parts of the world that celebrate breads with recipes that center around these breads,” Brioza says. “I love the Sichuan flatbread—it's this great ropy kind of flatbread. It's supereasy. We've adopted a version of that for State Bird Provisions.”
