I had a dream last night: a chef in my kitchen, recipe in hand, shopping, chopping and schlepping done. She looked at me and said, “Just cook it.”
Sound dreamy to you too? Well, wake up and let us introduce the term ‘meal assembly’, the most recent addition to our culinary lexicon and one that we have welcomed with open arms. All moms know the bulk of cooking time is spent on preparation so what could be savvier than taking the grind out of daily meal prep?
Mise en Place is the BMW of food assembly in Calgary. Located in Lakeview, it is designed to be the kitchen you always wanted—right down to the chocolate brown apron. Sleek, contemporary and spotless, it resembles a show home.
So what do you do there? Why, assemble meals, of course. Meal choices can be made ahead of time and customers arrive to assemble fresh, healthy delectable meals for their families. Entrees are restaurant quality (all tested by the resident chef) and are worth serving to your boss, best friend or pickiest eater.
Mise en Place offers services ranging from solo meal assembly to group events that include food sampling, wine pairing and no clean-up. They also do in-home parties.
