this can't be understood as "The bread is from the cook", can del be understood as from?

from the cook >> DAL cuoco

"The bread is the cook's" -- what does this mean? That the cook baked the bread? That the bread is the cook's property? Is it wrong to say "The bread is made by the cook" or "The cook baked the bread"?
