What is 'mise en place'?

We understand that professional chef's may cook food a little faster than the average home cook. To even out the playing field so *everyone's* culinary results are the same regardless of culinary skill, the Hestan Cue app makes use of the 'mise en place' methodology. This French phrase translates to “everything in its place”. It’s the preparation of food and equipment before you begin cooking. For example, you might clean and dice your tomatoes, measure out your dry ingredients, or whip your eggs. You’ll also want to make sure that you have all of your equipment and tools on hand and ready to use. With the help of these handy preparations, when the time comes to combine the ingredients on the stove or assemble the final dish, you aren’t scrambling to dice your onions or chop your parsley.
