Ratatouille is not only this gifted rat from Pixar, but it’s also a delicious dish that originates from Provence, South of France! It came to exist over centuries of vegetables foreign to the region making their way to France, and French chefs doing the rest of the work. The various vegetables are arranged in a beautiful bouquet and cooked and drizzled with a luxurious sauce, making it a culinary work of art. It’s easy, healthy and the perfect side dish for your summer BBQ.
Whether it’s an old family recipe, or you’re just trying it for the first time, you’re bound to love making Ratatouille. Just gather fresh ingredients and you’re ready to go!
