I have a Paul Prudhomme turducken recipe that I've been saving. My goal is to make it one time. Sadly, I'm the only one who's interested in eating it so it's facing an indefinite delay.

In addition to all the excellent suggestions you've received, see if you can find a copy of Julia Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking"., which has a lot of dishes that are time-intensive.
Additionally on specific dishes, some others you might want to try are sauerbraten, duck confit, tomato gravy, feijoada, the Brazilian version of cassoulet, a long version paella, the Belgian Carbonnade a la flamande, the Italian very time intensive dish, timpano that was featured in the film "Big Night", Greek lamb kleftiko and the Alsace dish choucrout.
Any of or all of the above will keep you time-intensified for quite a while!

Andy, you make it and I would be more than happy to help you eat it! Honest and for true. I have thought about trying it but also do not have enough poultry fans around who would want to try it.

Food We've Made

We are on a gourmet pizza kick right now. We've made a pizza with roasted garlic, pound of caramelized shallots, and grayson cheese. We made another pizza with mascarpone/pesto base and shrimp. In the past we've hand-rolled gnocchi and made the pasta sauce, with sweet potato gnocchi and icing for a desert. We also got into risottos for a while.

To KathleenA,

I tried to reply, but don't think I did it correctly. We have made some gourmet pizzas, like a olive oil base, roasted garlic, caramelized shallots, grayson cheese pizza, a mascarpone/pesto base shrimp pizza. We also hand-rolled gnocchi, made our own sauce, and made sweet potato gnocchi with icing for desert. We made a mushroom risotto which was good too.

Are there any keywords that I can type in to a Google search? I try the word "gourmet" but that doesn't really help. Thanks.
Welcome to DC. I'm new, too.

If you love such recipes, may I recommend you and your friend consider "signature" dishes by some of the world's great chefs.

Saveurs du monde - Recettes Gourmandes

Top right-hand side of the page is "English" for translating purposes.

I've made the following and to great success:
Lemon Tarte by Raymond Blanc
Gingerbread by Jacques Thorel
Pumpkin Soup with Fourme d'Albert by Guy Savoy, Paris
Michel Guérard’s Poulet Sauté Au Vinaigre

I love French cuisine. It's a weakness of mine. Michel Guérard's cuisine is a favourite but is also a most courteous man, so vastly different from the foul-mouthed Gordon Ramsey.

The recipes are also graded from "Easy" to "Difficult", so you and your friend should be delighted with this recipe link.
