sur lequel je ferai la mise en place de mes plats

What is the function of “la” in the following please? “sur lequel je ferai la mise en place de mes plats”. Should I read this as (in a clunky way) “sur lequel je ferai/on which I will make” “la mise en place/the installation of” “de mes plats/of my plates”.

"mise en place" and "mise en scene" are feminine so takes the "la" article

Faire la mise en place -- to set up, to lay out.

Hi Brian,

I haven't carried out the exercise, but my immediate thought is that "la" is a direct object pronoun in the sense "I will put IT (feminine) ......"     (faire vtr)

Does this help?
