Bananas Foster, a favorite New Orleans dessert, was created by the Brennan family in the 1950s when they opened Brennan's restaurant in the French Quarter. It was named for a regular customer, Dick Foster. It never fails to please and is easy to prepare. If you're a New Orleanian old enough to remember NOPSI, New Orleans Public Service, Inc., you've probably sampled some of the hundreds of recipes the utility company published over the years, which were created by the company's home economists. This is one of their recipes.
