As long as I can remember, I made this tartine right after my Ratatouille grilled pizza. I had learnt my lesson well. The lesson is "less is always more"; I was trying to replicate the same plating style from the animated movie onto the grilled pizza. I ended up with several epic kitchen fail. I decided to keep this tartine as simple as I can without compromising on how ratatouille should taste like.
I sliced the vegetables into strips using a peeler and grill them on a griddle pan. The rest is just plating magic. Some people had asked me how do I learnt to plate and where do I get my inspirations from. I simply have no answer. I usually would draw my idea on a piece of paper, but somehow it will never be the same as my final plating. I guess it is just improvisation along the way. Anyway, I really hope you will give this recipe a try.
