Who knew America was hungering for a movie about an aspiring chef who just happens to be a rat?
Not us, but "Ratatouille" has become a box office hit anyway. And Sur La Table is savvy enough to bring the Disney/Pixar movie home through a collection of "Ratatouille"-inspired cookware designed for kids.
Included in the collection: an apron and pot holder that come with a plush Remy the Rat doll ($19.95); a flatware set ($9.95); a plate, bowl and tumbler dinnertime set ($19.95); a wooden-handled spatula featuring Remy ($7.95); a baking set that includes a 10-cup plastic mixing bowl, a whisk, a mixing spoon, measuring cups and a fluted cake pan ($29.95); and "Ratatouille: What’s Cooking? A Cookbook for Kids" ($12.95), which features recipes inspired by the movie and is designed for cooks ages 4 to 8.
All are available at Sur La Table at the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort, 3663 Las Vegas Blvd. South, or online (www.surlatable.com).
