What are the hardest to prepare recipes in history?

I'm putting together a list of recipes that only master cooks take on once they're at the highest levels. Dishes where the sauce alone can take two days. I need recipes that aren't new (aka it requires a magnetic cooktop) or too non-western. And I'd love if there was anything that had some history (though in general if it's a dish over 30 years old, it's going to). As in "It was prepared once for President McKinley...who fired the chef." Ideas?
Too non-western: For instance Buddha Jumps the Wall, a soup that takes two days with a lot of different kinds of meat is good. But the blowfish that if improperly prepared kills you...not so much.
