Work Clean: The life-changing power of mise-en-place to organize your life, work, and mind
 
The first organizational book inspired by the culinary world, taking mise-en-place outside the kitchen.
 
Every day, chefs across the globe churn out enormous amounts of high-quality work with efficiency using a system called mise-en-place—a French culinary term that means “putting in place” and signifies an entire lifestyle of readiness and engagement. In Work Clean, Dan Charnas reveals how to apply mise-en-place outside the kitchen, in any kind of work.
 
Culled from dozens of interviews with culinary professionals and executives, including world-renowned chefs like Thomas Keller and Alfred Portale, this essential guide offers a simple system to focus your actions and accomplish your work. Charnas spells out the 10 major principles of mise-en-place for chefs and non chefs alike:
  • (1) planning is prime;
  • (2) arranging spaces and perfecting movements;
  • (3) cleaning as you go;
  • (4) making first moves;
  • (5) finishing actions;
  • (6) slowing down to speed up;
  • (7) call and callback;
  • (8) open ears and eyes;
  • (9) inspect and correct;
  • (10) total utilization.
 
This journey into the world of chefs and cooks shows you how each principle works in the kitchen, office, home, and virtually any other setting.
