This is a French word meaning “flamed,” or on fire. Not only is a flambéed dish full of flavor, but it’s also dramatic and en fuego. Did we mention that it has to be covered in alcohol first? This cooking method just keeps getting better and better. Not sure what to flambé? Try anything from seafood to chicken. We’ve even seen ice cream flambe’d. So to recap: Prepare a dish, douse with liquor, set on fire and watch it burn (but don’t let it burn). On second thought, this one may be best left to culinary professionals.
