While our friend Olivier was visiting from Poitiers, France, he made us his family's 7 Hour Slow Roasted Lamb and his family's famous Ratatouille.
Olivier claims it's very important to add the ingredients in the same order he did in order to get all the flavours into this ratatouille. Boy oh boy, he wasn't kidding!
This has got to be the BEST ratatouille I've ever had. The adding of the ham is his own twist on his momma's recipe and after trying this dish, I must say the added flavour is definitely there for a good reason.
