Spoiler for Possible poison used

It isn't a sure thing, but certainly possible.  It's better than anything I came up with.

Sorry, spent the last three months training in a pocket dimension where time was 20 times slower...*whistling* 

 

 

Ok Y-san, its been two months since the last comment, please divulge the answer. I have spent many hours on brainden, yet i have never posted a comment/answer. So please, in celebration of this momentous occasion, tell your answer.

 

 

Awww...this is the best present I got this year ^_^ .  In celebration, a continuance of the story:

 

 

Several hours later, as the police were taking the culprit into custody, Sergeant Principe approached the brooding detective.  "We got the lab results back, they confirm your suspicions.  There was poison found on the greens but only trace amounts, and also trace amounts found on the body, on the..."

 

Ben Near, who stood near and had already heard B-kun's deduction, interjected, "Guess that means you were right about what was missing, what someone who fancies himself a chef, who tries to be like a real professional chef would have.  And of course, a chef always tastes his food for seasoning.  But why didn't the culprit just take the sirloin with him?"

 

B-kun shrugged.  "I cannot say for certain the mindset of the culprit, but, although the murder itself may have been planned ahead of time, his reaction to the dying message was spontaneous.  It is likely in that moment he decided to use it to try to point to an outside source, in an attempt to prevent or at least delay the police from looking into the firm and finding out about whatever matter the culprit thought was worth killing for.  'A' is a very common initial, no doubt the police would have found someone in Victor's life with that letter to distract them."

 

Ben nodded.  "Makes sense."  He stroked his rough chin thoughtfully.  "You're good, you know that?  What am I saying, of course you do...is it true what Violet said?  That you were on your way to Harvard Law?  What happened?"

 

B-kun's steady eyes looked away.  "I do not want to discuss it."

 

Pursing his lips, Ben mused.  "It's about a woman, isn't it?  It's always about a woman..."

Flame: That's right.  An item was poisoned.  The killer could guarantee that the chef would use it regardless of what he made.  He wouldn't have more than one of them, either, because the killer didn't go crazy and poison all the things willy-nilly.

One additional point to think about: not only would the tampering have to be obvious to Violet's father immediately after the fact, but he would also be able to deduce from the tampering who had actually done it.

Spoiler for Getting close...

 

Okay, admittedly the full answer is a bit chef-specialized, but there's a point of contact, if you will, that should be pretty obvious anyone who's ever tried to cook.  Hint...think about what you do when you're going to cook...
