Favourite Dishes of 2010

There are dishes that you eat when dining out in a restaurant and then there are dishes that are standouts, ones that you remember for a long time to come. This list is devoted to my favourite dishes that I have eaten in 2010. I have listed each dish, the chef, restaurant and a link to the article with a photo for reference, and they are not in any ranking order.
