movie facts

Ratatouille is a type of French stew. Originally from Nice, it is a provincial stewed vegetable dish. During the late 18th century, it was a coarse stew. Modern versions of ratatouille are tomatoes as the foundation of sauteed garlic, onions, zucchini, eggplant, bell peppers, marjoram, fennel and basil. In the film, the variation of Ratatouille that Remy serves is a confit byaldi. Old school Ratatouille fried the vegetables before baking. To prepare and serve a confit byaldi, peel, finely chop, and reduce peppers, yellow onions, tomatoes, garlic, and herbs. Spread thinly on a baking tray, then layer with thinly sized and even rounds of zucchini, yellow squash, Japanese eggplant, and roma tomatoes, then covered in parchment paper. This is all baked slowly to steam the vegetables. When serving, a piperade is used to form a small mound, then some of the rounds are fanned-out around the base. A balsamic vinaigrette can be then drizzled on the plate.
