Colette Tatou was, as she tells us in Ratatouille, "the toughest cook" in famed chef Auguste Gusteau's kitchen. She worked incredibly hard in what she sees as the sexist world of haute cuisine to get to that position. Viewing cooking as a form of art, she is meticulous about technique and ingredients. However, she lacks the spark of imagination that would take her from "very good" to "great" -- as she tells someone she's mentoring, her job is to follow recipes, not create them.

She's blunt and can be abrasive toward others, especially if she feels challenged and they strike her as stupid or incompetent. She's completely capable of threatening or slamming knives around to make a point. However, if someone rolls with her and accepts that she generally knows what she's talking about, she relaxes and becomes a good friend.

She'll be tough on her students as a teacher, but not out of bounds, and she's generally more easy-going when she's off-duty.

She is very very French (duh), and speaks English as a second language, weeth a theek accent that I won't be typing out. And she looks a lot like Janeane Garofalo with no glasses, because Janeane was her voice actress, she has more or less the right coloring, and I love her lots.

Class Rules
  • This is a kitchen. Things are sharp and they are hot. Be aware of those facts at all times.
  • The responses to an order or question from Chef Colette are 'yes chef,' 'no chef' and 'right away, chef.' Arguing with her in a disrespectful manner is likely to get you kitchen clean-up duty if she's feeling benevolent, detention if she isn't.
  • Don't argue with your fellow students, either. Colette will just think you're both morons and act accordingly.



She could use a good TA or two! Comment here for great RNG justice. All comments are screened -- I'll unscreen non-TA-related stuff.
