What is Mise en Place?
John Spacey, updated on July 12, 2016
Mise en place is a French culinary principle that can be translated "everything in its place." It refers to the practice of taking the time to set everything in its proper place in a kitchen before beginning to prepare a meal. Applied to home cooking, it means to set out all your ingredients before you begin to cook. The term mise en place is often used as a time management analogy that suggests that highly organized workspaces are more efficient. Another common time management analogy, "messy desk, clear mind" suggests the opposite.
