Chef Dominic & His Brother Make Coffee Diablo

This video was made for our Season of Stories promotion, Christmas 2016. Chef Dominic, with the help of his brother John (the Family Culinary Historian) recreate a Holiday memory from the past by making this incredible flaming coffee drink known as Coffee Diablo. Many years ago, both Dominic and John worked for their father in the donut business that he operated in Cincinnati, Ohio. Every year, their father Paul Palazzolo used to make this impressive flaming coffee for his regular customers on Christmas Eve. What was supposed to be a small tribute to the past actually turned out to be a fascinating and hilarious video as two brothers who are obviously very close, joke and tease each other while creating an impressive column of flavor infused fire from a heated bowl of coffee laced with brandy and Cointreau.
