When someone says this is a "gourmet meal" or this is "gourmet food" what exactly is the criteria?
Is it just about expensive ingredients? Or does the technique or process in preparation play a role in what is "gourmet"? Surely, one can have a "gourmet meal" with inexpensive ingredients, right?
But is there a singular definition of "gourmet" ... or is it just something we know when we see it?
