What is Mise en Place?

Mise en place is a French term meaning “to put in place” and is the method used by professional chefs to stay organized. It is more than just the steps in the recipe. It is a way to manage your time, tools, resources, and even yourself.

Mise (as it is often shortened to in the professional kitchen) is everything.  It refers to the preparation and assembly of ingredients, pans, utensils, equipment, and serving pieces needed for a particular dish. It includes not only the production of a dish, but also the setting up, breaking down, and cleaning while you work.
It also includes making lists and detailed timelines to keep yourself organized.
