    Mine is Peter Reinharts "the bread bakers apprentice". All about the art of artisan bread. I love bread. Wish I had more time. My dream is to open n artisan bread spot one day. Need to find the right area/market.

    My buddy got me that one for the holidays. Great book. The Rich Man's Brioche is ridiculous. Tastes like gluttony.

    So good. My favorite is the peasant bread on the cover. Can't remember the name but it's one of the most ridiculous things I've tasted. It's like a 4 day process but well worth it.

    Anthony Bourdain's Les Halles……..aside from that, james peterson's sauces, michel roux jr The french kitchen

    I too, have reinharts books.

    another great recommendation is Daniel Leader's books (bread alone and local breads) if you like artisan and sourdough.

    hmmm another great topic would be what are your fav books / what do chefs collect LOL

    faviken is great. i like a lot  of his philosophy and styles its really interesting to see someone going so fat to classic cooking from their region.
