Notes

As I am sitting here in sunny Provence, listening to the sound of the crickets and smelling the lavender, I thought I would share one of my favorite local dishes. Ratatouille can be prepared ahead of time and served cold or warm as a side dish. Perfect for summer! I like to sprinkle sheep feta on top and serve with black olives.
