Most Difficult / Time Consuming Recipes
I have a friend coming in for a week long visit. Since we last saw each other (5 years ago) we've both become fairly over-the-top in our home cooking adventures. We've been drawing up lots of plans for serious kitchen time.
I'm curious what recipes people have enjoyed (both making and eating) that require lots of committment in terms of difficulty in technique or massive amounts of time (or both).
