It’s cheese Gromit, but not as we know it!

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Casu marzu:

Casu marzu (also called casu modde, casu cundhídu, or in Italian formaggio marcio) is a cheese found in Sardinia, Italy, notable for being riddled with live insect larvae. Casu marzu means “rotten cheese” in Sardinian and is known colloquially as maggot cheese.

I think I might just pass on this one..

  1. This reminds me of another disgusting ‘foodstuff’ which used to be relished by Malaysian students whom I knew in Swansea. They imported prawns and left them to fester and become really rancid before eating them. The stench was dreadful throughout the Halls of Residence… but they claimed that eating them was not only a sign of manliness, but improved their sexual performance too…… though how they ever got near enough to anyone to find out, I’ll never know!
