1. As a Side Dish to Meats

Veal Chop with Ratatouille. Ratatouille goes well with all kinds of grilled meats—love it with flank steak, lamb, and veal, especially.

2. With an Array of Summery Salads

From upper right: Ratatouille, White Bean-Tarragon Salad (page 52 of the Bonne Femme Cookbook), and Tabbouleh. Plus a little cracker of a local washed-rind sheeps-milk cheese. Gorgeous lunch on a hot day.

3. With a Poached Egg Salad and a Cheese Tray

And now: Four Secrets to a Great Ratatouille

1. Find a great recipe (mine is here).

2. Use only the best, freshest ingredients you can find.

Don’t even bother to make ratatouille if you can’t find great in-season veggies. Pictured above is a great farmers market haul.

3. Use a Great Olive Oil

I got olive oil from Nicolas Alziari in Nice. It’s available at Williams-Sonoma, but you don’t need to use that particular oil. Just use the best one you have. It will make a difference in this dish.

4. Give It a Rest

After you’ve made the ratatouille, refrigerate it for a day. Those flavors will really take off after some time together.
