Inspired by YouTube personality “Binging with Babish,” an 18-year-old named Jalan began uploading videos to TikTok, each one recreating dishes seen in popular movies and television shows from her childhood.
She’s made dumplings from “Kung Fu Panda,” spinach puffs from “The Emperor’s New Groove,” and apple ginger snaps from “Fantastic Mr. Fox.”
But perhaps her most popular creation of all was the iconic ratatouille dish from the beloved 2007 Pixar film of the same name.
“Growing up watching the Disney movie Ratatouille, I was inspired to try the iconic dish that was served in the film,” she told Newsflare.
Jalan served up the visually beautiful and deliciously savory French dish in her own kitchen using ingredients like celery, carrots, and roasted bell peppers and jalapenos.
According to Wikipedia, “The Larousse Gastronomique claims ‘according to the purists, the different vegetables should be cooked separately, then combined and cooked slowly together until they attain a smooth, creamy consistency’, so that each [vegetable] will taste truly of itself.”
Before digging in, she topped it with one single chive, just like in the movie.
It’s a long process, as the ratatouille was baked “low and slow” for three hours, after the precise and lengthy process of perfectly cutting and chopping the vegetables.
This dish helped Jalan become an online sensation with nearly 7 million likes!
“It has an immensely nostalgic feel to it, and I’m so happy to see how people enjoyed watching the process just as much as I loved doing it!” she told Newsflare.
