Another Per Se tidbit: Ratatouille

Does the picture below from Per Se look familiar to you?

If you’ve seen Pixar’s animated movie Ratatouille, then it should definitely look familiar.  This is Thomas Keller’s version of the classic provencial French vegetable dish named ratatouille, and its resemblance to the final creation in the movie Ratatouille is no coincidence.

Thomas Keller was actually a consultant for the movie and he allowed the film’s producer to intern at the French Laundry and design this fancy layered version of the dish.  So, if you ever wanted to taste what looked so amazingly delicious in the movie, then all you have to do is take a trip to the French Laundry or Per Se.

Oh, and by the way, it really was as delicious as that evil food critic said it was.

One response to “Another Per Se tidbit: Ratatouille” so far, care to add your two cents?

  1. He wasn’t evil, but the emaciated product of a diet of pure pretension. We do like him in the end, remember? If i remember correctly, i cried when the camera zoomed into his eyes for the ratatouille flashback. All three times i saw the movie.

    we’re getting this dish.

Please leave your opinion, I'd love to hear it!
