Ratatouille is a famous Provençal Vegetarian French dish that intrigued many of us when it was portrayed in a Disney movie with the same name. The movie is the story of Remy, an idealistic and ambitious young rat, gifted with highly developed senses of taste and smell. Inspired by his idol, the recently deceased chef Auguste Gusteau, Remy dreams of becoming a cook himself. One of the biggest challenges for the filmmakers was creating computer-generated images of food that would appear delicious. Gourmet chefs in both the U.S. and France were consulted and the animators attended cooking classes at San Francisco-area culinary schools to understand the workings of a commercial kitchen….

Assembling the Ratatouille

1. To assemble the Ratatouille, preheat the oven to 180C/350F and pour the sauce into the casserole. Place sliced vegetables along the outer edge of the dish alternating them to create a pattern. Add as many slices as needed to fill the gap in the middle.

2. Pour the herbal seasoning over the vegetables and cover the casserole dish with a lid or a piece of parchment paper. Bake for about an hour.

3. To serve, add roasted vegetables to each plate with a generous amount of the sauce. Sprinkle fresh herbs on top if desired.
