At least once, but likely more often, I've witnessed a collective and dramatic groan from the Chppoed judges when a contestant 'ruins' their creation by a last minute addition of truffle oil. Which begs the question: why stock truffle oil _at all_ if it's considered a newbie's faux-pas? Essentially, its' presence on the shelf is a challenge to fail. What's next, wormwood and fugu?
I don't expect this topic thread to have much legs, but merely pointing out something that bugged me.
