In the Kitchen … Mise en Place

Good organization will take the stress out of preparing even the most complicated recipes.
Mise en Place (pronounced MEEZ ahn plahs) is French for Put in Place and is just a fancy phrase for gathering and prepping everything you need for a recipe before you start cooking.

Even if you are a multi-tasker extraordinaire, it’s a good idea to assemble and prep any and all of the ingredients you need for a particular recipe. Especially a complicated one. It’s common practice among professional chefs. Putting everything in place before you start removes the stress caused by a last minute scramble to find, measure, chop and mince your ingredients.
