Fresh Fruits Flambe

Fresh Fruits Flambe created by Fairy Nuff

A delightful after dinner dessert, this fruit flambe can be spooned over ice cream or enjoyed just as it is. Danaka's Palace in Toronto developed this recipe in honour of Canada's greatest Prime Minister, Pierre Elliot Trudeau. Mr. Trudeau visited Danaka's Palace frequently, whether in an official capacity, or just in town to attend a theatre. I am far from being a famous politician, but I do attend theatres frequently. This particular recipe has a permanent home in my collection of "fast and easy to prepare"; my guests enjoy the selection of fruit used to produce this dessert.

    Beautiful way to prepare fruit Toolie! I subbed pears and honeydew for the pineapple and peaches (due to availability)and used a lovely ruby grapefruit. This was my first go at flambe .... hehehe it's quite spectacular and lends a wonderful flavour to the fruit. My family was most impressed and I still have my eyebrows :) .
