We worked in the gargen and Sue made the best Ratatouille in the world.
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 Occitan Provença (French: Provence) and Niça (French: Nice); the Catalan “samfaina” and the Majorcan “tombet” are versions of the same dish.
It was like eating Summer! Everything except the rice was picked from the garden within a few minutes of being cooked! Wow!
