The perfect recipe is sometimes a mystery - a quest that may take hours, days or months to achieve. Just ask Ferran Adria and Heston Blumenthal, chefs who have gone to extraordinary lengths to find culinary perfection.
At Fine Dining Lovers, we understand the care that goes into crafting the best recipes. In 2012, we were fortunate to interview top chefs in the industry like Rene Redzepi and Thomas Keller who took on theFDL Bare Fridge Challenge and told us what they would make with just four ingredients: cabbage, rice, egg and black pepper.
We also took great care in expanding our recipe section with dishes from renown chefs like Alex Atala, Gaston Acurio, Juan Mari Arzak and many more. Our passion for finding the best recipes led us to creating our very own app called The Perfect Host. The latest edition features a collection of Italian recipes from Thomas Randall and a slew of tips for entertaining.
Below you'll some of the best recipes we featured in 2012. For more dishes - and a new recipe each day - we invite to visit our Recipes section often.
