10 Quintessential New Orleans Dishes

10 of 12
This dessert is yet another product of the inventive spirit of New Orleans. The confection, created at Brennan's in the 1950s, is made with bananas (obviously) cooked in butter and sugar, with booze (like rum and banana liqueur) added and ignited. The whole concoction is served with vanilla ice cream, and often topped with whipped cream and nuts. You'll go bananas for this choice. (Sorry, we had to!)
