crazy sardinia

Speaking of Casu Marzu...

Casu Marzu is a Sardinian cheese (though it is mostly outlawed even there). While it is supposedly fantastic, I refuse to eat anything that is processed by maggots. The cheese itself is fermented with maggots in it which break it down into a much softer, smoother product. Worse still, the maggots are left IN the cheese for consumption. As they can leap 6 inches from the vile “food” and have sharp hooks, it is generally recommend to shield one’s face while eating… or, you know, AVOID IT LIKE THE FUCKING PLAGUE!
