Mise en Place

A French term that literally means, "setting in place." It's used in cooking to describe all the prep and gathering of ingredients before starting the actual cooking process. This means pulling out your pots and pans, and every single ingredient before you even think about turning the burners on. Following this technique will definitely put you on the track to becoming a star chef.
