There is nothing more theatrical than a chef setting your dessert alight with a burst of flames tableside at the end of dinner. Flambéing provides a dramatic effect—hypnotic flames skipping across swirls of a meringue or spreading over caramelized bananas in a sweet rum sauce. This impressive cooking technique imparts a subtle liquor flavor that compliments desserts and savory sauces.
