Crepe Suzette is a classic French dessert made of thin pancakes (crepes) that are served with a warm sauce made of caramelized sugar, butter, orange juice, and zest, and usually flambeed with orange liqueur (such as Grand Marnier) at the table.

The dish was created by French chef Henri Charpentier in the late 19th century, and is named after a young French girl, Suzette, who was dining with the Prince of Wales (who later became King Edward VII) when Charpentier created the dish.

To make Crepe Suzette, the crepes are first cooked until they are slightly browned, and then folded into quarters. The sauce is made by melting butter, adding sugar, and then mixing in freshly squeezed orange juice and zest. The crepes are then coated in the sauce and heated until the sauce is bubbly and caramelized.

Traditionally, the dish is flambeed tableside, which involves pouring a small amount of orange liqueur over the crepes and then lighting it on fire. This step is optional and can be omitted if you're not comfortable with flambeing.

Crepe Suzette is typically served as a dessert and is often accompanied by a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. It's a decadent and indulgent treat that is perfect for special occasions or when you're looking to impress guests with a fancy French dessert.
