This dish celebrates the best that vegetables have to offer. Remy would be so proud.
There’s something about on-screen food that just looks…better somehow and it gets bonus points if it’s animated. Perhaps it’s the notion that it’s somehow unattainable to us mere mortals out in non-celluloid land that adds to its yum factor, but it definitely looks more delectable. But in reality, even though these dishes have been styled, colour corrected and edited to visual perfection, they’re usually quite easy to recreate in the comfort of your own home.
One standout movie for all food-lover is the Disney movie, Ratatouille. Anyone who loves food as much as Remy the rat did, deserves the opportunity to call themselves a Chef. So while we don’t recommend getting a rat to do your cooking in real life, we have tried to bring you a taste of his skills and in particular, the titular dish, Ratatouille. If it could bring a smile to the face of grumpy food critic Anton Ego, we’re sure it can work its magic on you too.
Ratatouille is a summertime French classic. Packed with fresh produce like aubergines, zucchini, squash and peppers, and served up in a riot of colour, this is a perfect dish to make vegetables the star of the show, and if you skip the cheese, this is even a great dish for vegans. Though it was once considered a peasant dish, the humble Ratatouille has moved away from the family table and into the gourmet spotlight, so now is your chance to bring it home once again.
