Corn Chowder with Bourbon Flambe

Corn Chowder with Sweet Potatoes and Bourbon Flambe

Flaming bourbon or alcohol of choice brings fun and flavor to this traditional dish. No you won't be serving your guest a bowl of fire, but you will see the flame in the kitchen. I actually mixed things up by using sweet potatoes and I like to puree my chowder, but you can do as you please. The flambe technique will burn off most of the alcohol so all you get in the soup is a nice bourbon flavor.

Flambé refers to lighting a dish on fire. Use this dessert at the end of a dairy meal. This dessert can be made on the spot and can be a great cause of entertainment for your guest if you choose to flambé the caramel rum sauce.

Always use caution when dealing with fire, keep a lid on stand by in case the flames get out of hand, but do enjoy the process and the show. Don't save this dish to eat in restaurants it couldn't be easier and tastier. Typically the dish is made with butter, but to keep it parve I used coconut oil and it worked perfectly. The rum flavor really makes this dish pop. It is not the healthiest way to eat bananas, so try it with some low fat yogurt for dessert.
