I made this a very long time ago, and remember everyone really liked it! If you make this, please becareful when you prepare to flambe'. It is really neat when you have company and look like a real chef performing!! Practice ladies and gents...practice.....:)

You could also serve a flambe dessert after. Well....you have practiced, right? I have served Cherries Jubilee, very impressive I must say. It was for a party I had for the neighborhood wives. The alcohol vanishes during burning mostly, leaving the food with a subtle spirit flavor. Leave it for the adults though!!
