    You could make a zablaigone in front of them. A good 5-10 mins of whisking. :roll: Hehe.


    But seriously, you could make crepes, slather them with orange butter, quarter them, and then flame them on a silver platter with some brandy and grand marnier.

    My standby is bananas foster...it tastes good, is inexpensive and is on fire as you have requested. I won't bother w/ a recipe since there are so many. Just buy a good vanilla ice cream to put in some martini glasses and serve the bananas over it...too simple and everyone digs it!

    A well done creme brulee with a good crisp crust is always a great classic.

    Whip up a St. Honoré cake!

    Sorry. I kid.

    You could make profiteroles and arrange three in a line and pour the chocolate sauce on them for each guest. Super simple, but still impressive.

    Crepes suzette, You can make the crepes beforehand then heat them up in a mixture of OJ, Grand Marnier (which you flambee), sugar, zest, a tiny bit of vanilla, and mount with butter to get an even sauce. Garnish with supremes of oranges and it makes a pretty, delicious and simple dessert.
