Ratatouille is a traditional French dish made from several different types of vegetables. It is featured in the titular Pixar film Ratatouille.

The name of the dish was first mentioned in passing by Linguini while drunk.

The dish itself was later made by Remy and the rat clan for food critic Anton Ego when he ate at Gusteau's. Luckily, Ego had loved the dish as a child, and enjoyed Remy's version immensely. Although the dish garnered the restaurant a glowing review from Ego, soon afterwards customers realized that rats were present in the kitchen, and the restaurant was closed due to infestation. Ego also lost his job and credibility as a restaurant critic, and instead became an investor in Remy's personal and highly popular restaurant, La Ratatouille, where Ego would almost always ask for this dish.

    Two versions of the Ratatouille dish are actually featured in the film: the one servered to Anton Ego at Gusteau's is known as Confit byaldi, which was chosen for it's more pleasing appareance, compared to the traditional version featuring rough-cut vegetables. The traditional version appeared briefly in Ego's flashback to his childhood.
  • Colette Tatou considered Ratatouille to be a "peasant's dish".
