Ratatouille


Food always comes to those who love to cook.” – Gusteau
From the movie” Ratatouille”

The word ratatouille comes from Occitan “ratatolha”. It is also used in French (“touiller,” also means to toss food). Ratatouille originated in the area around present day Occitan Provença (French: Provence) & Niça (French: Nice). It was originally a common dish, prepared in the summer with fresh summer vegetables. The original Ratatolha de Niça used only courgettes (zucchini), tomatoes, green and red peppers (bell peppers), onion, and garlic. The dish known today as ratatouille adds aubergine (eggplant) to that mixture. – Wikipedia
