The story of Ratatouille centers on Remy, a rat who loves to cook. It wasn’t an easy ride for him to become a recognized chef. But with the help of his friends and family, he was able to fulfill his dream and became the chef behind the bistro La Ratatouille. The movie was set in France and featured French cuisine, culture, and architecture.
“Ratatouille” is actually a French dish that was featured in the film. But the team behind Ratatouille: The Adventure in Disneyland Paris took things to a whole new level for the park’s visitors by opening a vegetable garden. Potager Ratatouille is close to one of the hotels in the porperty, Cheyenne. The produce from the garden includes white eggplants, golden marconi peppers, and a wide variety of tomatoes like pink, orange, white, and black ones. Visitors can sample the popular dish at Chez Rémy, a gourmet restaurant in the park that utilizes unusual ingredients from the vegetable garden.
Disneyland Paris is located in Marne-la-Vallée in the Seine-et-Marne department. The region also has other attractions like the UNESCO World Heritage site Château of Fontainebleau. This grand palace has been around for over eight centuries and is still inhabited.
