Jason and Jenna are HUGE fans of the Pixar movie, Ratatouille, so when I heard that Remy makes an appearance at the French restaurant at Epcot, I immediately made reservations. And while I’m not usually a big fan of the behaviors they pick up from watching cartoons, I am hugely grateful to Ratatouille for selling J+J on the concept of trying new food pairings. It all started with the cheese and strawberry scene, which prompted Jason to request cheese and strawberries as his new favorite snack. Since then, we’ve been able to introduce all sorts of new food combinations under the guise of ‘that’s what Ratatouille eats’ (Jason refers to the main character as the name of the movie rather than ‘Remy’).
Lunch with Remy at Les Chefs de France was definitely one of the highlights of our vacation. Jason loved interacting with the animated rat almost as much as he loved eating an entire baguette of French bread.
