Mise en Place: CrossFitting chef Nick Massie on how to make cooking fast and enjoyable.
Food—we all eat it, and most of us enjoy it. Some look to it for comfort, while others see it strictly as fuel.
However you view food, there is one resounding truth: it can be a daunting task to learn to prepare it well. From planning a weekly menu to shopping, storing, cooking and cleaning up afterward, a lot goes into food preparation.
The following are some valuable lessons I’ve learned in the kitchen over the past 15 years. I hope that sharing them with you will provide a better understanding of how to approach cooking, and that you will learn to enjoy planning your weekly menu.
And maybe you’ll see how similar cooking can be to CrossFit.
