Prep. Time stands for Preparation Time. So it’s about the steps you do in advance. All this. For the sake of a cooking time. That is as efficient as possible. And you know what they say about Dutch people. They are super direct. However their work ethics is based upon efficiency. So there you have it. A direct but efficient approach to cooking!
My goal is to create recipes that are as simple as possible. However some dishes need more attention. Hence the classification of each recipe.
- ★ = Simple & Intuitive. Like using your iPhone or Samsung phone
- ★★ = As simple as an Ikea manual
- ★★★ = Not as complex as preparing a Michelin starred dish. But you would need a bit of attention and flair. To get this super delicious food on your plate
I use quality ingredients. That are as organic as possible. Despite today’s inflation and the impact on costs of living. I stick to my guns. And eat good food. That I buy at the weekly farmer’s market
Mise an place is a French term for getting your act together. Before you actually start cooking. What I try to state here is the following. When you wash, towel dry, measure, weigh, cut and slice ingredients in advance. And have them neatly arranged on your counter or table. You will do the cooking, frying, grilling and or baking with less hassle. Check this metaphor. Before you start washing your hair. You have your bottle of shampoo and a towel within reach. So you could focus on getting the job done. Well. Within a very short frame of time. And that is what “mise en place” is about.
