Mise is a new meal delivery service in the San Francisco Bay Area, including San Jose and the Peninsula. Their dishes are carefully curated and prepared by local chefs.
“Mise en place (pronounced “meezon plahs”) is a French culinary term that means arrangement. It refers to the process by which a chef organizes each ingredient ahead of time in order to simplify the cooking process. We want to help you not only arrange the little things in your life, but also to enjoy them as well. No more time wasted on meal planning or rushing home after work to cook.” – Mise
The meals are delivered cold. All you have to do is heat it in the oven or microwave.
Order a bunch and eat them for lunch or dinner throughout the week.
Here are the dishes that my family tried:
Chef Gariela Guerrero’s Vegetable Crepe with Home Fries The home fries were the best part of this dish! The vegetable crepe was made with mozzarella cheese and seasonal vegetables like zucchini, bell peppers, and corn. This is the perfect dish for vegetarians.
Chef Maria del Carmen’s Pupusas Revueltas I was a little excited to try pupusas for the first time since I’ve never had it. And the pupusas did not disappoint. They were stuffed with carnitas and well balanced in flavor. I wasn’t quite sure how a pupusa is eaten but I covered mine with the salsa and it added a tanginess that went well together. However, I couldn’t handle the spicy curtido, which is a pickled saw of cabbage, carrots, onions, and jalapenos. I don’t have a palate for spicy food but my husband does. So the curtido was all his.Chef Sang Ae Leblon’s French Guittard Chocolate Cake with Blueberries You can’t really go wrong with chocolate cake, can you? This was fabulous, rich, and indulgent, surrounded with chocolate shavings and fresh blueberries.
Chef Sang Ae’s and Chef Sophiane’s Apple Tarte Tatin
The Apple Tarte Tatin was a surprising hit for me and my husband. The slow cooked apples over a puff pastry was drenched in caramel.
The apples were tender and paired with the caramel, it was a divine dessert without being too rich.
