NATIONAL CHERRIES JUBILEE DAY
Cherries are mixed together with liqueur (typically Kirschwasser) and then flambeed. Very commonly the Cherries Jubilee is served as a sauce over vanilla ice cream.
Auguste Escoffier receives the credit for the Cherries Jubilee recipe. He prepared the dish for one of Queen Victoria’s Jubilee celebration. It remains unclear if it was the Golden Jubilee of 1887 or the Diamond Jubilee of 1897.
