Man, I see this and I'm thinking "Those guys must have practiced forever to do that correctly every time. What a fucking waste of time."
But then it's not considered a waste of time, because people will pay them to do it. Pay them to practice smearing sauce on a table for hours and hours.
Life is weird.
As an artist I have to say that I think chefs are going too far trying to make their food look like fine art. There's presentation to make uncommon ingredients or dishes look edible, and then there's this. And it's not even subjective, there is a correct way to prepare certain ingredients, and they're just gouging these silly customers who are so rich they'll buy this stuff, for what's this fragmented, misshapen mess. If you must make the equivalent of The Pietà, try that with desserts.
