Mise en place
This French phrase means to put things in place, to prepare. Whether you are a classically trained chef or learned your cooking technique in your home kitchen, every successful food vendor understands the importance of having everything in its proper place.

You know the old woodworking adage "measure twice, cut once"? That applies to food prep as well, so be sure to double check the conversion rates of your ingredients.
