Remember Ratatouille the movie, with Remy the chef rat? Well, here’s my version of the recipe for this French traditional dish, whose name was made famous by this film! And why not try cooking up a rabbit stew too while at it?
I must admit, ever since the movie Ratatouille came out, I often relate this name to the chef rat, instead of the French dish! I know, the French would probably strangle me for such a blasphemous thought! But worry no more, I now know my place, and am loving this dish to bits.
So ratatouille is in fact a traditional Provençal vegetable stew, which explains the mainly mediterranean vegetables ingredients, like courgettes, tomatoes and aubergines. This dish originated in Nice, that beautiful sunny southern town in France.
For me, I like having my version of this dish as a main dish. If you feel that you need something more filling to have together, one suggestion is to have some pan-fried white boudin with ratatouille as a side! Some people like to have ratatouille as a filling for crepes, or as the topping for bruschetta! Be creative and enjoy it however you like!
Ingredients (serves 3-4):
And voilà, this dish is ready to be served, whether on its own or to pair it with something else! And why not open a bottle of rosé to enjoy it with. It goes quite well together!
When I first cooked this dish, it is one of the rare ones that my hubby gave his thumbs up, meaning it’s good enough to be cooked again! So, ever since then, I have improved on it and here, I’ll like to share it with you.
TIP: Since this is a stew, you should cook it 3-4 hours in advance before serving. Worry not, this is an easy dish, it just needs time to “stew”.
Ingredients (serves 3-4):
I hope you will have fun trying these French dishes. Especially the rabbit stew, since rabbit is not such a common meat for many. So, have fun cooking!
An adventurous foodie lost in one of the gastronomic capitals of the world and loving every moment of it! I like to cook too, making my adventures in France very fun and enjoyable as I eat, taste then try or innovate recipes to share with you! My motto: Diet starts Tomorrow!
