Friday 14 Sep 2007: Maggot cheese
Casu Marzu (Sardinian for "rotten cheese") is a cheese from the Italian island of Sardinia, which is considered to be a local delicacy. The advanced level of fermentation is brought on by cheese fly larvae digesting the cheese from within. These larvae are added to the cheese to give it its unique texture and flavour. The cheese is often eaten without removing the live maggots.
