How to Make An Elegant Flaming Dinner


  • 1Spoon flaming brandied pineapple sauce over chicken and fruit pieces for a special Chicken jubilee Family or guest dinner.
  • 2To prepare a flambe' dish, combine brandy or other alcoholic spirits such as rum or kirsch with a sauce, then ignite the sauce and spoon it over a desert or main dish.

    Sometimes a highly alcoholic flavoring extract or a sugar cube soaked in spirits is flamed.

    The spirits are usually warmed before adding to sauce and igniting.

    Ignite the sauce with a match, keeping your face clear of the high flames.

    Then spoon sauce over food. ***(a sauce high in butter or sugar content will produce a higher flame than will an ordinary sauce.)
  • 3A splendid effect is achieved at the end of a dinner by serving a flamed dessert.

    The alcohol vanishes during burning, leaving the food with a subtle spirit flavor.
