Mise en place – it’s more than just a cooking method, it’s a way of life. The French phrase (pronounced meez ahn plas) is Chef Greg’s motto and means “everything in place.” The key is to read recipe instructions and gather and prep all of your ingredients beforehand, and place them within easy reach before starting a recipe. Practicing “mise en place” is the simplest way to execute a recipe. Being prepared by having everything at the ready can help reduce new recipe anxiety and ensure recipe success!
