Week 5 – Flambé

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!
