Talking Requesting an incredibly difficult to make dish

So the new Stepdad of my Girlfriend will come over on the weekend.

He is a former Chef of the - star hotel Le troix rois basel. He specifically asked for a hard dish to cook when he comes over.

So there we go. I recherched in the internet but apparently most of the dishes marked as difficult are mainly labeled because they take very long to prepare.

Also, It should taste very good. Any Recomendations to put him to the test?

What does he like, what kind of food, would be my first question in deciding what to do.

Beef Wellington takes some skill - making the pastry and the duxelles, then roasting it so that the pastry is beautifully browned and the roast perfectly rare.

Or egg-yolk filled ravioli.

Agree on the wellington... perfect risotto is also a challenge. But if I were in your shoes I would scope out some old episodes of Hell's Kitchen or MasterChef on YouTube and check late episodes in a season for judged challenges or the finales to see what the finalists prepare to see if anything catches your palette. Many of these are intricate and/or difficult.

I suggest that he make food you enjoy.

Seafood? How about coquilles st jacques (scallops with wine,cream and baked with fancy potatoes)

Eggs? Cheese souffle

You get the idea...

Personally... I might ask for the perfect omelet, lovely fresh baked bread and fresh asparagus with a hollandaise sauce. These things are not hard but need to be perfect ;) Excellent skill makes these simple ingredients shine.
