we don't go to the cinema ever either and we saw it yesterday and we were so hungry after we left the cinema we had to stop for dinner on the way home.

All I can think about is next week's market visit and getting the ingredients to make a ratatouille!


Haven't seen the movie yet (I usually wait for them on Netflix), but with so many ratatouille recipes showing up now, I might just have to go and see what all the fuss is about!


Awww, I am literally bouncing up and down in my chair waiting for it to open here in Australia - all the reviews I've read so far have been glowing, and the clips that I've seen are just so adorable!! I've never actually made a ratatouille before...but I guess I should really give it a try before I go to see the movie :P

I have been known to fall asleep at movies... luckily, I don't snore. This recipe looks good. I've not made ratatouille before, so this will be a good place to start.

yum yum ratatouille! Loving it already!


It's easy to convert this from side dish to meal; Elizabeth David has a great recipe w/ potatoes and eggs.


I loved the movie too! And my taste in movies tends towards darkish dramas, so that's saying something. Your oven-roasted version of ratatouille looks great!

I don't go to movies either (though I like the idea of it, I just don't like to DO it). This one looks like a nice escapist thing.

As for the recipe... maybe this weekend I'll try.


I even more determind to see the movie now. Those are high compliments from you, a self-confessed non-movie goer. Thanks!


I bet I've not seen in a movie - in the theater or otherwise since, um Christmas, maybe Christmas a year ago? But there was no way I was missing this one and yes, agreed, totally totally agreed, it's just a big smile the whole way through, with lots of laugh out loud spots too. Who knew a rat could be adorable?!!

Like you, I'm not much of a moviegoer, though this is one flick I aim to see on the big screen. And did you hear sales of ratatouille in NYC restaurants are skyrocketing? People are in love!

This movie is the foodies version of "Rocky Horror Picture Show."

We'll all dress up in charactor, go to the theatre at midnight, prance around the stage in front of the film. I can't wait.

Since every woman wants to be sexy/sultry/bitchin' Colette, I'm getting outfitted for a cute blue rat suit!

Thanks, Christine, for your review.

I was thinking of going to that movie, and now you've talked me into it. Love your recipe too!

I can't even remember the last movie I saw at the theater... Maybe Titanic.
But this is one I am going to see!
Thanks for the review~ and the ratatouille.

FYI, Keller's recipe for the movie's version of ratatouille, "Confit Biyaldi," can be found in the Bouchon cookbook, and here:
