Marcel deciding to do a salad course was disappointing, regardless of the big idea. I think it's great to want to incorporate so many techniques, but the salad has to be the best salad you've ever eaten. I didn't get the risk of using the technique as an ingredient. I'm all about taking chances, but I'm not so sure. A chance should be, at the very least, an educated guess. I thought Marcel missed out on an opportunity when he decided that throwing a teardrop on the dish was going to make it incredible.
