1. Use caution when making this dish.

2. Peel a thin strip of peel from the bananas, and use your knife to slice the banana crossways into coins.

3. Melt the butter and add the brown sugar to form a creamy paste.

4. Let this mixture caramelize over the heat for about 5 minutes. Stir in the banana liqueur.

5. Heat until the liquor is warmed, about three minutes.

6. Add the bananas, add the rum (preferably warmed), then ignite with a flourish and cook for about 1 - 2 minutes.

7. Here's the showiest way to do this:

8. Using a long, bent-handled ladle, scoop up some of the warm liquor.

9. Hold it a foot or two above the chafing dish and ignite the liquor in the ladle.

10. VERY CAREFULLY, pour the liquor into the dish.

11. A column of flame will descend from the ladle into the dish, which will ignite with a marvelous *poof*!

12. Keep a pal nearby, subtly wielding a fire extinguisher.

13. Agitate to keep the flame burning, and add a few pinches of cinnamon to the flame.

14. The cinnamon will sparkle orange in the blue flame, and looks really neat. Let the flames go out. Serve over ice cream.
