I must say I personally have been inspired by the new Canada Food Guide to work more at cooking from scratch. I have written a blog post recently about the new Canada Food Guide and if you like, you can read it here: Link to Previous Canada Food Guide Blog Post about En-JOY-ing our Food
Today I picked up these adorable measuring nesting bowls with lemons on them. Lately I am in love with lemons, especially starting my day with warm lemon water. I find now that I am creating more food and new recipes of my own, I can never have enough measuring cups, especially when it comes to preparing my mise en place.
Mise en place (French pronunciation: [mi zɑ̃ ˈplas]) is a French culinary term which means “putting in place” or “everything in its place.” It refers to the set up required before cooking, and is often used in professional kitchens to refer to organizing and arranging the ingredients ex. chopped veggies, sauces, cuts of meat, spices, herbs etc. Basically it’s getting your ingredients and utensils ready before you cook.
I first learned of mise en place last year while taking my Forks Over Knives plant based cooking school, of which, I am a proud graduate.
I am finding that I am getting more JOY from preparing my food and having things like these bowls that make me smile while I am doing it. 🙂
I also love how these bowls ‘nest’ making for easy storage.
I would love to hear what inspires you in your kitchen?
