Ratatouille a la Remy (Confit Byaldi by Thomas Keller)

Ratatouille! Before I dive into the lists of new recipes I’m dying to try, I wanted to transfer over the ‘Ratatouille a la Remy’ I made almost two years ago from my tumblr. Inspired by Pixar one night I did a bit of research to find that the Ratatouille in the movie is not the French classic, but a reimagining by Thomas Keller called ‘Confit Byaldi.’ Classically ratatouille featured roughly cut vegetables that were fried then baked, and plated as a stew. Thomas Kellers ‘byaldi’ variation for ‘The French Laundry Cookbook” features vegetables in thin slices, adds a piperade (tomato & bellpeper sauce) at the bottom, a vinaigrette at the top, and serves the dish by fanning the vegetables out accordion-style. Thomas Keller, that fancy guy.
