  1. I love this movie also. And Ratatouille is so good to make, especially in late summer when you can easily get some lovely fresh tomatoes and zucchini! It freezes well.

    Hullo, Erin–always glad to meet another “Ratatouille” fan 🙂

    I should probably post a followup recipe–something like the simplest ratatouille evah!

    I also love this movie and am compelled to watch it through when I discover it on television. The movie mixes many of my favorite things in one; Paris, food, passion, being true to yourself… My children remarked that the Ratatouille recipe depicted in the movie is different than the one I have prepared, which is more of a soup or stew. I got a copy of Julia Child’s The Way to Cook and Mastering the Art of French Cooking and her version it seems to be more like a casserole. Please, if you have the mind to post your recipe for this dish, especially if you have your own take on it, I would love to see it. As Erin wrote in her post, it freezes well and is a wonderful way to have this delicious meal on hand as a meal or a side dish. Cook once, eat many times!

    Cate, that is exactly what I ought to do and I should have my recipe posted later this week. I want to see if I can make it more like the one in the film, and yet keep it as simple to prepare as possible. There are look-alike recipes out there, including the one from the chef at French Laundry (who designed the one used in the film), but its technical complexity goes against the grain of my blog’s intent. More later….thanks for commenting!
