National Cherries Jubilee Day is here and we are highlighting our live action cherries jubilee crepe station! But before we get to the yummy pictures...
A Brief History of Cherries Jubilee
Cherries jubilee is a dessert that consists of cherries in a sauce, usually a simple syrup, flambéed in some kind of liquor (typically brandy, or kirschwasser
). It is served as a dessert topping, usually on ice cream (or our favorite: atop warm, freshly made crepes). Cherries jubilee is generally credited
as being created by chef Georges-Auguste Escoffier
for Queen Victoria's Jubilee celebrations in the late 19th century - hence the name!
