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.

Night after night, chefs and their crews are able to multitask and produce in a way that puts deskbound workers to shame. In Work Clean, Dan Charnas uncovers their secret: mise-en-place – the organizational system that transforms the lives of its practitioners through focus and self-discipline.

Through interviews with top chefs working in professional kitchens all over the world, culinary students, line cooks and restaurant employees, Charnas reveals the ten major principles of mise-en-place — including ‘Arranging spaces’, ‘Finishing actions’ and ‘Slowing Down to Speed Up’ — and demonstrates how they can be used to boost productivity in all aspects of life.
