Gulp. It’s the big one!

I experienced many emotions when we picked France from our random country generator website. I wasn’t expecting France so early, was I ready to do it justice? Ready or not, we decided to do France right. There are a multitude of meals that France calls their own, so naturally, we couldn’t do just one. That’s why we created a little event called…. France Month. We chose four meals from France to do (there are still many more waiting for us…) and made each one a special event.

First on the list: Ratatouille!

The meal is simple, timeless, and a perfect way start France Month. For indeed, more difficult, challenging meals are ahead…
