Did you know that the main dish in Ratatouille technically isn’t ratatouille? The dish, known as Confit Byaldi, is actually a French dish created by the chef Thomas Keller. While Confit Byaldi uses similar flavors and has mostly the same ingredients as ratatouille, traditional ratatouille is typically more rustic and choppy. Regardless of the name, the dish that Remy creates in the animated film still had my mouth watering. Learn how to create the dish here.

Pork Tamales from "Coco"

In Coco, Miguel’s Abuela knows that you can never have enough tamales. The flavorful pockets of meat are a little tricky to master, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be pushing them on everyone, just like Miguel’s Abuela. Whole Heartily has put together a recipe based on the dish from Coco to help you master the Mexican delicacy. 

Gooseberry Pie from "Snow White"

Recreating the Gooseberry Pie from Snow White isn’t as hard as it seems. In fact the only catch may be that you have to wait until July for gooseberry season! Gooseberries are both sweet and a little tart, just like rhubarb. Head on over to Nicole The Nomad’s post to see just how easy it is to recreate this sweet treat.

The Grey Stuff from "Beauty and the Beast"

Ever wonder what was really in the Grey Stuff from Beauty and The Beast? Turns out you’re not alone. So many people were curious about the unusual colored dessert that Disney developed a recipe for the treat and you can actually try it the next time you're at the Disney parks! But don’t worry if you can’t make it to Disney any time soon. My Frugal Adventures has developed a recipe for you to make the Grey Stuff at home.

In Brave, Merida’s brothers can be seen snacking on empire biscuits in multiple scenes. The little pastries are traditional Scottish cookies and are surprisingly easy to recreate at home. Not Quite Nigella has put her own little spin on them to make the biscuits look like they were taken right out of the animated film.

There’s good news and bad news when making these bao buns. The bad news is that they won’t come to life, unlike the adorable little bun in the Disney short film, Bao. The good news is that the buns are incredibly delicious. These little fluffy buns are stuffed to the brim with ground pork and vegetables and then steamed to perfection. Learn how to make these buns from scratch by checking out Thrifty Jinxy’s blog.

Kronk takes great pride in his spinach puffs in the Emperor’s New Groove. The tasty little puffs only show up for a short time in the underrated Disney classic but make a lasting impact due to Kronk’s devotion to these tasty puffs. Recreate Knonk’s spinach puffs at home to see if they live up to their reputation. 

Broccoli Pizza from "Inside Out"

A Mom's Take

Did you ever wonder what the broccoli pizza in Inside Out actually tastes like? During the animated film, Anger has a super strong reaction to the pizza, making it seem pretty unappetizing. But the slice does look pretty tasty if I do say so myself. Judge the broccoli pizza for yourself and check out the recipe on A Mom's Take blog.
