(Yoko version)
炎立つバナナフォスター拍手浴び
ほのお たつ ばなな ふぉすたー はくしゅ あび

flame show
thrills in the restaurant
banana foster

(Michiko version)
スイーツをお酒で点火鍋のショー
すいーつ を おさけ で てんか なべ の しょー

In 1950s, New Orleans in the State of Louisiana was the major port of entry for bananas shipped from Central and South America. In 1951, Chef Paul Blang of Brennan’s, a restaurant in New Orleans , created Banana Foster, named after a customer, Richard Foster. The dish is known for the dramatic flames of heated banana liqueur and dark rum (or flambé). It has become an international favorite.

1951年代、ルイジアナ州ニューオーリンズは中南米からのバナナの集散地でした。バナナフォスターはその地のレストランの一つ、ブレナンのシェフが1951年に創作し、今や世界中に知られています。テーブルサイドでバナナリッカーとカリブ海地方産のラム酒を点火して派手に炎を上げるところに人気があります。
