Cherries Jubilee! CCM How-To Video on YouTube and Facebook

The First in a Planned Series of How-To Videos

Who knew such an easy-to-make dessert could look so impressive. Cherries jubilee is delicious, eye catching, and also quick and easy to put together. Want to know how to make it?  Then visit the County College of Morris (CCM) YouTube channel, Facebook page or       

CCM has just released its first “how- to” video, Cherries Jubilee! The video is the first of a planned series of short videos featuring CCM faculty members offering their expertise so viewers can learn “how-to-do-it” themselves.

Professor Mark Cosgrove, chair of the Hospitality Management and Culinary Arts Department, and CCM’s Media Center produced Cherries Jubilee! to show how to make the simple but sure-to-please dessert.  Cherries jubilee is a flambéed dish created by Auguste Escoffier for one of Queen Victoria’s jubilee celebrations.  In the video, Cosgrove demonstrates step-by-step how to incorporate the ingredients together to make a beautiful food presentation that is sure to impress.

Using demerara sugar (natural brown sugar), some arrowroot, orange juice, pitted cherries (fresh or frozen), orange zest, a little cherry brandy and two scoops of vanilla ice cream, you can make a dessert that even the harshest food critic is likely to enjoy. 

Viewers on CCM’s YouTube channel also can watch videos on the college’s Performing Arts program, recent Fine Arts Faculty Exhibition at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Family Testimonials and more.
