I love travelling and writing, meeting people and experiencing foodie places.

If you are a fellow dessert fiend, I am in search of 'The Great Bombe Alaska'. There's many variations of the Bombe in cafes and restaurants and is not to be confused with the Baked Alaska, whereby the meringue is grilled or oven baked for a short time. The Bombe Alaska is one that is flambéed, or torched, as a fitting end to a beautiful meal.

There's the traditional Bombe Alaska created from cake and surrounded with deliciously full-fat icecream. Then egg and sugar mixture is placed on top to create the meringue. Once cooked, brandy or rum is splashed over this white mass. Then light it. Voila. A flaming meringue icecream cake. A Bombe Alaska.
If you know where the Bombe Alaska's are hiding, let us know in the comments below. I've tried a spectacular nougat Bombe Alaska at Pins On Lurline.
Gelato Messina is well-known for their scrumptious desserts, as well as their impressive Bombe Alaska. There are also pistachio Bombes, strawberry ones, juicy raspberry Alaskas and cherry Bombes out there in The Land of Dessert.
Where can we find other spectacular Bombe Alaskas. Let us know for discussion.
