"Bananas Foster is the simplest dessert, but it stuns at the dining room table and on the palate. Bananas, rum, sugar, flames and a healthy dose of vanilla ice cream - we've never met anyone who doesn't love it. Created at Brennan's Restaurant here in New Orleans in 1951, it made good use of the bananas arriving in the the city from South America through the port at that time. Thank goodness, because it just may be our favorite dessert." -- edible New Orleans.
