Ratatouille is a traditional French dish originating in Nice, France. There are varying preparation methods, but in basic form, the recipe contains tomatoes, squash, zucchini, eggplant, and local herbs. In North America, we are in our prime harvest season for many of those vegetables and herbs. There is no better recipe to capitalize on an abundant harvest from your garden.
I chose the grilling method because its summer, which is perfect weather for grilling, and because this unique preparation of the dish adds some great smoky, roasted flavors not found in traditional methods. I envision people sitting around a table, outside at dusk, with glasses of chilled wine, really enjoying this dish and the social aspects of a shared, home cooked meal. The use of red wine vinegar and fresh herbs provide a great marinade that imparts some great fresh flavors as well as adding to the browning of the meat and veggies.
