Ratatouille Movie Night

It’s a Ratatouille #movienightfriday is one of our favorites. My kiddo can watch this movie over and over and over and over, you get the point. Any way, we know that Ratatouille takes place in Paris, France as we see the Eiffel Tower in the background.

Beyond touring the Eiffel Tower, and knowing where France is on the map. We also speak French fluently here, so this is nothing new to us.

Plus a lot of the Disney movies are set in France like Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast and Hunchback of Notre Dame to name a few. So we took this lesson into the kitchen where Remy loves to be and spoke about how kitchens work.

We were over the basic rules, which you can find in our Kitchen rule post, as well as different types of employees in the food industry.

Now not all kitchens have that many types of food, or kitchen staff/ chefs in the back but it is important to know what goes on, as we see in majority of the film. We also see Linguini work on his basic knife skills and other techniques thats are a must when cooking, all wonderful things to practice, which is why we bring you a French themed menu for you to work with your kids.
