Last week in New York, McDonald's enlisted the services of some world-renowned chefs to make gourmet meals, based on the restaurant's staple offerings. Dale Talde, James Tahhan, Aaron McCargo Jnr and McDonald's culinary expert Jessica Foust all got together to make the dishes below.

Take a look at the images and see if you can work out the constituent ingredients - the dish details are all at the bottom.
