Jeg Liker Everyday Carry – EDC

november 2, 2010

‘Everyday Carry, or EDC, generally refers to small items or gadgets worn, carried, or made available in pockets, holsters, or bags on a daily basis to manage common tasks or for use in unexpected situations or emergencies. In a broader sense, it is a lifestyle, discipline, or philosophy of preparedness.’

Bortimot Nirvana for gadget freaks. Som meg, altså… Pluss at siden fokuserer mer på praktiske og funksjonelle ting enn kun stil! Lommelykter, kniver, etc…

75 Skills Every Man Should Master

Underholdende! Esquire satte sammen en fin liten liste over mer eller mindre nevenyttige egenskaper enhver mann bør kunne. Av typen:

«55. Point to the north at any time.

If you have a watch, you can point the hour hand at the sun. Then find the point directly between the hour hand and the 12. That’s south. The opposite direction is, of course, north.»

Skjønner’u? Nyttig, vettu’!

Jeg Liker Prinsippet Om ‘Mise En Place’

desember 15, 2008


«Mise en place (literally «put in place») is a French phrase defined by the Culinary Institute of America as «everything in place», as in set up. It is used in professional kitchens to refer to the ingredients, such as cuts of meat, relishes, sauces, par-cooked items, spices, freshly chopped vegetables, and other components that a cook requires for the menu items that they expect to prepare during their shift.

Recipes are reviewed, to check for necessary ingredients and equipment. Ingredients are measured out, washed, chopped and placed in individual bowls. Equipment such as spatulas and blenders are prepared for use, while ovens are preheated. Preparing the mise en place ahead of time allows the chef to cook without having to stop and assemble items, which is desirable in recipes with time constraints.

It also refers to the preparation and layouts that are set up and used by line cooks at their stations in a commercial or restaurant kitchen.

The concept of having everything in its place as applied to the work in a kitchen is likely to have become a staple around the time of Auguste Escoffier,[citation needed] who is well known for his development of the brigade system of running a kitchen.

Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain has often referred to mise en place as his religion.» (Wikipedia)

Dette prinsippet kan lett overføres til andre bruksområder. Det handler om planlegging og å ha utstyret du trenger i orden. Overraskende hvor mye man kan lære om egne kunnskapsområder av å la seg inspirere av andre fag. Prosjektledelse, presentasjoner, design, krig, osv. Alle kan lære noe av gode kokker…

Mye bra Zen i Mise En Place!
