Foodie Friday - Crepes suzette

Simple but spectacular.  These are orange flavoured crepes flambĂ©ed in liqueur – usually Grand Marnier.  The spectacular part is that the flambĂ©ing is done at the table not in the kitchen. 

The dish is said to have been created in 1905 in Monaco when the Prince of Wales asked for crepes and the waiter unintentionally set fire to the dish.  The Prince loved the taste and the dish was then named after one of his guest's daughters.
