Ohhh... today's going to be a good one here at our 360 Catering and Events YouTube channel.
You see, today is National Hot Buttered Rum Day and we are rising to the occasion to give you a knock-your-socks off cooking demonstration that turns things up a notch on the three main ingredients... Heat, butter, and rum.
That's right, to celebrate National Hot Buttered Rum Day, Chef Cody is cooking up some bananas foster!
This combustible dessert was debuted in 1951 at the legendary Brennan's Restaurant in New Orleans, and is a huge hit at our catering events where often set up a full bananas foster station. And in today's video, you're going to get a full demonstration of how to cook this in your own home.
Not only will he show you how to make the best bananas foster sauce you've ever tasted, but when you see how quickly this comes together, we're sure that this will become one of your go-to desserts.
WARNING!!!! This is a technique that uses an open flame to cook the bananas. DO NOT ATTEMPT if you have low ceilings or are unsure that you'll be able to pull this off. We are NOT liable should anything catch fire or should anyone become injured.
Kids, please don't even try to attempt this without the guidance and direction of a responsible adult.
We really can't stress this enough!
