If you haven't, you're in for a treat on this page as I share some information about the food in this movie with you. The food not only looks delicious but it smells delicious, too.

The Ratatouille Story and the Movie Trailer
Meet Remy, a rat who dreams of becoming a famous chef despite the fact that his family would rather he stay where he is safe and eat garbage, like all rats do. His adventure, in the movie , takes you into a Gusteau's, a gourmet five-star restaurant run by his hero of culinary fame, Auguste Gusteau.
When Remy finds himself at the restaurant, he joins forces with Linguini, the garbage boy who quickly discovers that this little rat is talented. Remy and Linguini make a bargain which sees Remy cooking in the kitchen. Eventually, Remy has to decide between his dreams or his existence as a rat. Along the way, he learns much about family, friendship and being who you are.
Ratatouille features a realistic working French kitchen with top-quality kitchen tools that seem too real.

Good Knives, An Investment in Remy's Culinary Future
This Wusthof Set A Great Starter Set
"This is the set to buy if you want to start a knife collection properly or replace so-so tools with the best cutters available. They're hand-forged from a single piece of stainless steel for maximum strength; the hand-polished blades are exactingly calibrated to be hard enough to resist dulling yet soft enough to take a keen edge when they're honed or sharpened. They will provide a lifetime of low-maintenance cutting to the cook." ~~ Arthur Boehm
Remy is "dying to become a chef."
Cooking Up Some Computer-Generated Food on Ratatouille - Including comfort food at its best!
In this YouTube video clip, the creative minds from Pixar discuss the challenges that were present when trying to make computer animated food real. In this scene you will see Remy's soup. I'm sure you will agree it looks delicious but I'm wondering if you can smell it, too? Remy's soup positively reminds me of Comfort Food at its best.

Gusteau's of Paris - A kitchen with a view!
The soup scene from Ratatouille is absolutely one of my favorites scenes...the aroma wafting out of that pot is amazing when Remy is finished spicing it up. I'm not sure if this carrot is going to make it into the pot but one thing I am sure of and that is that Remy wouldn't dream of using baby cut carrots. He'd pick only the tastiest, most nutritious carrots.
Remy Would Love To Add These Copper Pots To His Kitchen
The Matfer 8 Piece Bourgeat Copper Cookware Set
Whether Remy was making my soup or an omelet, this set would suit him brilliantly. Because of the cost of the set people do frequently build their collection from individual pieces.
"This is the very finest cookware made. It's expensive but worth every penny. The quality is evident in the heft and feel of each pot and pan. When you get into the larger pots, it is almost as heavy as cast iron. This line of cookware is truly the Ferrari of the kitchen. The copper responds immediately to any temperature input. So if you are a casual cook who does not tend to pay close attention to what's going on in the pan, things can go wrong quickly. But if you are an accomplished cook, cooking with Bourgeat is like taking a Ferrari to it's limits on the track. " ~~ Terry Gruggen
Linguini and Remy Ratatouille Movie Poster
I love this image of Linguini and Remy looking happy and satisfied in front of the Eiffel Tower. The image is from Amazon. However, it is no longer available there nor on eBay or Allposters so I am leaving it here on this page so that we can continue to enjoy it. Click here to see the posters available on Amazon that come up when I search for Remy and Linguini.

If You Haven't Seen Ratatouille The Movie Yet
You should order your copy right now from Amazon.
High-Def Digest says, "Ratatouille stands tall among the tallest of Pixar accomplishments -- it's adventurous, witty, visually captivating and utterly charming. This blu-ray release is also fantastic, boasting absolutely perfect video and audio, plus a great package of extras. I've reviewed over 500 next-gen discs over the last year and a half, and not one has received a perfect five star rating overall, but there's a first time for everything and I'm happy to report that 'Ratatouille' is it. This is a must-own disc that no Blu-ray collection should be without."
Amazon Customer Reviewer Gerard D. Launay says, "Everything about this film is wonderful...the streets of Paris are recreated in rich colors and exquisite detail. I haven't seen a European city look this good in an animated film since Disney's "Pinocchio." Yes, it is definitely worth experiencing this delight on Blu-Ray. Oh my, even the French copper pots look authentic."

The Ratatouille Movie Soundtrack - A Walt Disney soundtrack composed by Michael Giacchino.
AMAZON CUSTOMER REVIEW
"Definitely worth a purchase, the disc features songs that are playful, reflective, jazzy... sometimes all at once. As another commenter rightly noted, one of the songs -- "Anyone Can Cook" -- is particularly notable for how it tugs at your heartstrings and evokes the more sensitive moments towards the end of the film...But, oh, the rest of the tunes! Such a pleasure, bringing back great memories from the film. They'll be listened to again and again." ~~ Adam Lasnik
