Although Chef Chris Brown cooked Bananas Foster for us on his grill in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the recipe was created in New Orleans. And it’s popular in Key West.
But we like to party like we’re on the Gulf Coast when we're at home in the states!
Even through Bananas Foster was invented in New Orleans, Key West has its own version.
The famous Blue Heaven Restaurant has it’s own recipe. It serves one of the best breakfasts on the island and has a chicken graveyard on the premises, Jimmy Buffet has been known to show up unannounced and play from the Water Tower Stage.
They've changed the recipe a little. They use spiced rum and serve it over a slide of banana bread, topped with homemade vanilla bean ice cream. Yum!
