I bet that most of you lovely people had seen the awesome animated movie, "Ratatouille" by now. Please go watch it if you haven't already. Traditionally, ratatouille is a vegetable dish served in a course stew, but in the Ratatouille movie, however, they used a different variation called "Confit Byaldi" whereby the vegetables are layered on top of the stew and confit slowly in the oven until caramelized. In case you are wondering, Confit Byaldi is created by a French chef, Michel Guérard.

This dish indeed takes quite a bit of time and effort preparing and layering, but it is definitely worth it. I mean, even my kids, who are not fans of vegetables, are impressed by the presentation and asked for a second serving. You will need a mandolin to speed things up. It will also ensure that the thickness is even, well unless, you are some sort of a samurai master. The tricky part is slicing the tomatoes. I learned that using a bread serrated knife will slice the tomatoes with ease.

To get the same elegant presentation as the movie, you will need two 3-inch cookie cutters. Tape them together. Place the sliced vegetables vertically inside the cookie cutters until almost fully packed. Place another series of slice vegetables on the top horizontally. Slowly remove the cookie cutters and place a chive over the top. Voila! This is 100% vegan too. Without much delay, let's get started with the recipe.
