Ratatouille is definitely my favorite animated movie It’s been a long time that I wanted to replicate the famous dish that Rémi serves Anton Ego at the end of the movie Looking for inspiration on Pinterest, I immediately saw that I was not the only one to want to do it! Here is my version with my famous rosée sauce with grilled red peppers. *** Note that the preparation and cooking time does not include the time to make the rosée sauce. ***


  • 2 cups roasted red pepper rosée sauce
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 zucchini, cut in 0.5 cm slices
  • 1 yellow zucchini, cut into 0.5 cm slices
  • 1 Italian eggplant, cut into 0.5 cm slices
  • 3 Italian tomatoes, cut in 0.5 cm slices
  • 3 tablespoons fresh grated pecorino Romano cheese
  • Salt and pepper from the mill


  • Preheat oven to 375 °F.
  • In a large 10.5″ cast iron skillet (or other round baking dish), pour 2 cups of rose sauce and spread well.
  • In a bowl, mix garlic with herbs and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Alternately, and going from the outside to the inside of the pan, add a slice of zucchini, eggplant, tomato and yellow zucchini. Repeat with remaining vegetables until pan is filled.
  • Add a drizzle of olive oil on the vegetables and season with salt and pepper. Add the fresh herbs mix and spread evenly.
  • Sprinkle with Romano cheese and cover the pan with aluminum foil. Place in the oven and cook for 45 minutes. After this time, remove the foil and continue cooking for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the vegetables in the center are tender. Serve on rice or pearl couscous!

Our wine stewards suggest

+- 15$ Vale do Bomfim Douro 2015

It combines modernity and the classic side of European wines. It comes from Portugal, Douro region, it is called the Vale Do Bomfim and its price is only 14.55$ ! I have your attention now? The nose is powerful. We note the liquorice and the small red fruits. The palate is fresh, the tannin supple and the wine is charming. There, I have said it all…

Doppelbock, Vrooden, 8%

With caramelized notes of red berries, caramel, raisins and figs, this strong beer will be enjoyed along those slowly cooked veggies. The stewed vegetables will be joined by the roundness and the residual sugar of this beer which will bring a little more heat to this most comforting dish!
