Zen and the Art of Mise En Place

Got to thinking about this on my morning walk.

What I like best about cooking is the sense of mise en place: of getting my stuff together. Actually, in my head, the noun has a scatological connotation.

I greatly admire and secretly envy people who are highly disciplined and organised. I'm not one of them; never will be. Imposing order and control over life and its circumstances may be beyond my ability. But planning, preparing and executing a dish or even a meal is possible. Mind you, it is a challenge, but none the less, sometimes I pull it off.

And that is very, very rewarding.
