Bananas Foster is an Entree in Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!!.
Description[edit | edit source]
Bananas foster is a dessert somewhat similar to a banana split, as it is made of banana and vanilla ice cream. Before the ice cream is added, the bananas are cooked with a sauce made from butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, dark rum, and banana liqueur. Afterwards, more alcohol is poured on top and then ignited, after which the entire concoction is then served over the vanilla ice cream.
Created in 1951 in New Orleans when the city was dealing with the importation of more bananas than its citizens knew what to do with, bananas foster is one of the few experimental banana-based dishes made during that era to survive the Korean War. It is widely believed that the popularity and survival of this dish during the war is due to the fact that it became very closely associated with bananas themselves during an episode of the Very Late Show with Marvil Stettson.
During the celebrity chef guest segment, Chef Sly Hindell prepared the bananas foster dish in front of the audience, and upon seeing the dish go up in flames, Marvil exclaimed, "That's bananas!" The audience went wild, and the catchphrase immediately entered the lexicon. Marvil was constantly hounded by fans wanting him to say the famous phrase, which friends say infuriated him to no end. It is believed that Marvil became very bitter towards fruit by the end of his career and upon retirement in late 1964 became a meatatarian, or a person who only eats meat, before he died in slightly later 1964.
