Confit Byaldi is a dish that makes an appearance in the beloved Disney film, Ratatouille. Traditionally Ratatouille is a vegetable stew made of tomatoes, eggplants, zucchini, yellow squash and peppers. It’s a perfect way to use late summer vegetables, and is usually cooked on a stove.
This “Hollywood” version was made by Celebrity Chef Thomas Keller, who served as a consultant to Pixar. His method, involves placing thinly sliced vegetables accordion style and baking them together in one pan. It’s a perfect dish to bring to pot luck gatherings because of it’s elegant presentation. But you can also plate it individually by using a ring mold to arrange the delicately cooked vegetables onto a plate.
Ratatouille is traditionally cooked on a stove and relies on timing to ensure all vegetables are not overcooked and mushy. Cooking Confit Byaldi, (or anything confit for that matter) in the Anova Precision Oven is trouble free because you have complete control over the temperature and time. You’re always guaranteed consistent chef approved results!
