Movie Star Rat is a Gourmand

If you weren't too involved with your popcorn, those of you who caught "Cars" on screen this week may have noticed during previews a culinary tease to yet another Pixar main course, due out next summer. The dish in question is "Ratatouille," the story of a rat in Paris with an epicurean appetite. The trailer is hilarious and has me hungry for more, s'il vous plait.

On tap to direct is Brad Bird ("The Incredibles"); as for cast, word is that Brad Garrett ("Everybody Loves Raymond") will be the voice of the chef and that the gourmet rat in question will be the voice of Patton Oswalt ("King of Queens").

The film appears to have nothing to do with ratatouille, by the way, a stewy Provencal dish making use of summer goodies such as eggplant, tomatoes, zucchini, garlic and herbs.

Hi. Thank you so much for remembering the few of us who are vegan and the many of others who are intolerant of dairy products. The granita sounds wonderful. Also to note are some amazing brands of dairy free/vegan ice-creams available on the market including my personal favorite, Soy Delicious. It is absolutely the Ben and Jerry's of vegan ice cream. I have served it to my milk loving friends and they have enjoyed it thoroughly from their first to last bite.

I have yet to find a great recipe for vegan ice cream and was wondering if anyone has some suggestions. I have an ice cream make and have tried to make it but it always comes out very hard and without a great flavor or consistence.
