Like We Say In Latin America: Lo Mejor Para El Final (aka The Best For The End)

This cake has a LOT of history. Originally from France, it has conquered many Latin tables and won almost every Latinx heart. It is said that Tarta Tatin used to be a simple apple pie until one day, someone tripped and the pie fell over. However, they still served it cause… no one can throw away a caramelized apple pie… people fell in love with this new sweet alternative so France made it their own. 

It is known that, in several places in the southern cone of the continent, Tarta Tatin is the chosen dessert when welcoming family and friends to one’s house or even when celebrating a special occasion. So, what better way to wrap up your MLS day than by trying this sharp-tasting dish? 

Now… Do you feel ready for the season to begin? Go find your jersey, it’s been waiting for you and so is Messi and many Latin players who are ready to show their magic!
