Mise en Place - What is it? Well, is it a French saying for "everything in its place." It is a term used by professional chefs to describe a type of preparation in a kitchen - everything essential is prepped before service starts. This not only includes food, but utensils too like pots, pans, chopping boards - basically anything needed make the dish.
The food ingredients are broken down into individual elements. Each ingredient is washed, cut, diced or chopped and placed in containers either in the fridge or worktop, organised ready to assemble the desired dish.
Whether a small sandwich shop kitchen or Michelin Star kitchen, consistency is key when preparing food to ensure that high standards are met.
- Saves time in the kitchen
- Eliminates duplicate work
- Calmer & orderly (therefore a safer) kitchen - no running back and fourth for missing ingredients
- Missing ingredients can be spotted before service starts
