Look for Me in theÂ New York Times!
Please check out Pete Wells’ latest column in theÂ Sunday TimesÂ magazine. In it he wrestles, humorously, withÂ mise en place, a term that comes, he writes, “from a French phrase meaning ‘make the new guy do it.'” Happily enough, I agree with Pete thatÂ mise en placeÂ has got to go – at least if you’re cooking at home and not in a restaurant. In fact, I dispensed withÂ mise en placeÂ entirely inÂ Sara Moulton’s Everyday Family DinnersÂ — and discuss exactly why inÂ Pete’s column.
