Mise en Place (pronounced "MEEZ ahn plahs") is a French culinary phrase which literally means "put in place.” It is the process used in professional kitchens to organize, prepare, and arrange the ingredients prior to cooking. In a professional kitchen, the turnips are peeled, sliced and blanched. The meat is marinated, the stocks and sauces are made, the onions and garlic are chopped, and the water is boiling for the pasta. Once the preparation is complete, the dish comes together easily.
