Um, gourmet food is almost by definition food that is skilled labor-intensive to produce.

I don't think so. Gourmet food nowadays is:

  • tasty in a complex way
  • unusual

That requires creativity and a sense of style much more than it requires a lot of skilled labour. In a way it's like fashion -- fashionable clothes could require complex production, but they don't have to. Neither fashion nor gourmet cooking is about being "skilled-labour intensive".

That requires creativity and a sense of style much more than it requires a lot of skilled labour.

In other words it requires skilled labor where the relevant skills are creativity and a sense of style.
