So last week in class we Flambéed! We started off class by making the batter for the Crepes. We did that first so that we could let it rest for a little bit. We were allowed to pick a sauce to make – our choices were Raspberry, Strawberry, Chocolate, or Caramel. This sauce was also going to accompany our Bananas Foster, so the sauce had to go with it. I chose Caramel sauce because I love it.
So I made my homemade Caramel sauce and it was just sitting there taunting me. It was time to make the Crepes. Let’s just say that I won’t be a Crepe maker any time in the near future. It takes time to get a handle on it. I wasn’t very good at flipping it. I definitely need some more practice. I was doing better with a spatula! But we got a nice pile of Crepes that were ready to be plated. They were awaiting the Bananas Foster!
Next up it was time to make the Bananas Foster. Such a fun experience. I thought my eye brows were going to burn off for a minute, but all was well. The Fire Department wasn’t dispatched to the Restaurant School…this time.
It was out of this world! I was able to take some of the caramel sauce home to have with vanilla ice cream and it’s amazing. I could eat it by the spoonful!
