What Is Ratatouille?
What is Ratatouille? What is the history behind the dish and what ingredients are usually in it?
The word ratatouille comes from Occitan ratatolha and the recipe comes from Occitan cuisine. The French touiller means to toss food. Ratatouille originated in the area around present day French Provence Occitan Provença.
Ratatouille is usually served as a side dish, but also may be served as a meal on its own. Tomatoes are a key ingredient, with garlic, onions, zucchini, eggplant, bell peppers, marjoram and basil, or bay leaf and thyme.
I don't know what the history is but raratouille is delicious. I make mine with garlic, fresh tomatoes, zucchini, summer squash and eggplant, all drizzled with a little butter and olive oil and sprinkled with fresh parmesean cheese. stick it in the oven and bake it at 350 until the veggies are cooked.
