à la recherche or just recherche

Does the meaning change at all?

Hey!

The meaning doesn't change at all but I have to point out that we often use chercher instead of rechercher.

Plus, à la recherche de quelque chose is not that often used.

I don't think that être à la recherche and rechercher are really different in meaning- je recherche de la nourriture and je suis à la recherche de la nourriture both translate as "I am looking for food." I think it's just a small nuance in phrasing, like "I am looking for" versus "I am on the lookout for."
