Chocolate chip cookies. No-knead bread. Even crepes! All of these benefit from rest time (and usually 12+ hours). Are there other foods that also taste better the longer you take to make them?
One probably-not-so-secret technique to better tasting chocolate chip cookies is to chill the dough before baking (if you can manage) for 12-36 hours (as discussed, among other places, in this NYTimes article
