comment Fancy meals, not simple
a tip: "fancy" is generally only used by outsiders. You want recipes from insiders. Ditto "gourmet". Try "luxurious", "complex", "layered", "chef-inspired" and so on. Culinary textbooks are short on inspiration, but long on technique, so you could try finding those in a bookstore of a culinary school campus.
