One chef literally pulls this card straight when she leaves gooseberries unopened on the judges' plates. Her justification?
"I want you to experience the feeling of opening the gooseberries. The feeling of touching the leaves and opening it. It is an art."
- The judges did not take too kindly to this. Heck, Scott Conant gave her an epic tongue-lashing and outright called that chef "pretentious." Needless to say, she got chopped because of it.
