I’d been eying this one up from the Millennium cookbook for quite some time. Now that it’s getting more wintery I thought it would be a good chance to try it.
I made the sauce and ratatouille in advance, then just did the breadcrumbed aubergine at the last minute. As you see, it looks like a bit of a strange jumble. It was quite tasty but not as nice as I’d expected. I suppose I have such high expectations from this book now that if something isn’t perfect I’m not happy about it. Personally I think the sauce looks a bit of a mess and I’d never have known the onion had been smoked. Not my favourite dish from this book by any means, but OK.
