Casu Marzu

Taking a break from discontinued foods, let’s look at a disgusting food dish instead. Referred to as Maggot Cheese, Casu Marzu is a Sardinian cheese made from goat’s milk. Early in the fermenting process, the larvae of cheese flies are introduced. Over the next few weeks, the larvae hatch and begin feeding. As they break down the cheese’s fats, a special flavor is produced which many people consider to be delicious. When it’s time for human consumption, most people remove the maggots. However, some people leave them in to add an extra punch of flavor.
