This Week’s Small Bite: The Art of Mise en Place

Mise en place (pronounced meez ahn plahs) is a cooking term usually reserved for cooking schools and restaurant kitchens. French for “everything in its place,” it refers to the art of gathering all the ingredients needed for a recipe and prepping them (veggies chopped, spices measured, etc.) before you start to cook. Though it may be tempting to chop the carrots while the onions are sauteing, you’ll save time by prepping everything first and once you actually start cooking, you can focus completely on the task at hand.
