Fodrey Catering Concepts

Mise en Place - French pronounciation: mi za 'plas

It is a French culinary phrase which means "putting in place" or "everything in its place". It refers to the set up required before cooking, and is often used in professional kitchens to refer to organizing and arranging ingredients that a cook will require for the menu items that are expected to be prepared during a shift.


The inspiration behind Fodrey Catering Concepts came from years and years of working within the rules of someone else's kitchen. Gathering someone else's mise en place to prepare someone else's menu. Fodrey Catering Concepts takes great pride and passion in creating menus tailored to each and every individual client. Stepping outside of the culinary box and bringing our heart to your table.
