Ratatouille, pronounced as rat-ə-too-ee or [ʁataˈtuj], in French; is a traditional French Provencal stewed vegetable dish, originating in Nice. The full name of the dish is ratatouille niçoise.
Do you remember this scene from the Ratatouille (2007)?

Here is a how-to video on the recipe.
Surely you have watched the film, Ratatouille (2007).
The plot aside, the story is said to have captured the texture of a French restaurant kitchen perfectly, and the floor plan reminded viewers of the restaurant, La Tour d’Argent. The idea behind the film is to spark interest among younger audiences on French food.
I know it’s a solely vegetable dish in which many of our locals are less inclined to; however if you can view the flip side of the recipe and get the basic concoction correct, you may modify a little by adding poultry, pork or even red meat to make a wholesome and balance one-pot meal.
Have a great time trying out the recipe. 😀
