Recipes from Last Night – Ratatouille = Fail


So no recipe follows, sorry it was horrible. If any of you have a really good recipe for  ratatouille please let me know. This one had eggplant zucchini onions and roma tomatoes. The eggplant was bitter until I added white wine. Even after the wine however it had a bitter edge that really threw off the tenderness and savory tastes of herbs and other veggies. I hated it. I seem to remember a dish shown in the movie by the same name, where a mother of a critic prepares the dish.He has a flash back so you see the prep and delivery of his childhood memory. He had a hard day and in a cassolette she makes this. I remember her layering veggies over the top to almost create a crust.. yes?

What would Julia do.. hmm I will consult her books, but if there’s no relief to the bitter dagger that be eggplant I am kicking this taste sensation to the curb.

I used a new word in there 🙂 did you catch that ? I was in an antique store recently and saw several advertised in a back corner. Clayware- old porcelain coasted yummy beautiful things. I would buy several just to have them on my cabinets, so full of color and fabulous. See now that I have actually looked online.. I think mom figure did do a dough. I wasn’t sure if I saw that right as my failbus recipe called for simmering it, but she did a dough and baked it. I still dont like it.

Hmm so in reviewing tag surfing because WordPress does that – I found this blog post – ratatouille-marathon which also brings up the movie I mentioned, a better recipe and roasted peppers.
