Cherries jubilee is a dessert dish made with cherries and liqueur (typically Kirschwasser), which is subsequently flambéed, and commonly served as a sauce over vanilla ice cream.
The recipe is generally credited to Auguste Escoffier, who prepared the dish for one of Queen Victoria's Jubilee celebrations, widely thought to be the Diamond Jubilee in 1897.
Other flambéed fruit dishes include bananas Foster, mangos diablo (mangos flambéed in tequila) and pêches Louis (peaches flamed in whiskey).
