An Apple a Day…

 There are some limitations when using the Apple Macintosh as a client device for Tarantella:

* Printing to client device printers is only supported on Mac OS X version 10.2 or later.
* Client drive mapping (CDM) is not supported.

– from the Tarantella Administration Guide

Buenos Aires – There are, however, no limitations on using a Macintosh Apple, or any other kind of apple (preferably a good baking sort) for making a Tarantela. Now, as to why this dessert is called the tarantela, I haven’t a clue. It doesn’t seem to have any connection to the dance, the spider, the town of Taranto (where the dance originated, and was named, not for the spider as common folk-myth has it), or, for that matter, anything else that shares a similar name. It’s the sort of dessert that exemplifies the sweet tooth of porteño culture – taking a couple (or more) favorites and combining them into one. In this case, a torta de manzana and a flan, that latter atop the former. And of course, you can’t forget the crema on the side…
