Ratatouille


Ratatouille is one of my favorite movies ( though it won’t outshine ”spirited away” from studio Gibly!) It made me fall in love with cooking and creating new plates based on regular ingredients.

The traditional Ratatouille is  made with cubed veggies ( eggplants, peppers, tomatoes; zuchinis and onions). This is, actually, the disney version of Ratatouille: the deconstructed one!
