Whenever my father cooks he goes on and on about the mise en place. This is vitally important. To me it's just making even more of a mess. Does this sounds familiar to any of you: My mom just cooks lovely meals. My father is a good cook but it is theatre when he gets in the kitchen.
He does love to cook with my son and has passed the bug to him for which I am grateful though. My brother is usually my ally when it comes to teasing my dad but with the mise en place I'm on my own. My brother is a waiter (well not really anymore he manages the whole bloody restaurant right now) and he had some chefs training so he does the preparation thing..
Yesterday I found that my dad might be right. I decided to quilt with red thread in the quilted purse because I tried to be daring with colour. It might have been a good Idea to check if I had 2 spools of that because I don't and now I can't go on..
Of course I will never tell dads he's right.
