Casu Marzu: cheese with maggots

When you see food covers with maggots, you know it's time to throw it away. Not in this case with the Italian cheese, Casu Marzu.

Literally, this cheese is good to be eaten, when the surface is full of living maggots. It goes bad when all the maggots are dead.

It looks so gross that I don't even want to see it. Sincerely, who dare eating this?

  1. Oh my goodness... I have heard of cheese with maggots but I have never seen one. That's just too gross for me to even consider eating but I guess to some that is a delicacy.
