Mise En Place

“After a good dinner,
one can forgive anybody, even one’s relatives”

-Oscar Wilde

Mise En Place (meez ahn plahs) was born from an enthusiasm for cooking outstanding food with close friends. After working at some of The Bay Area’s best restaurants, including The French Laundry & Gary Danko, it became clear I should share my passion for food by catering small events, offering cooking lessons and creating a menu to prepare for your dinner party. We look forward to cooking for you. – Dan Petrie
