Sardinian foodies find this cheese delicious. You better don’t watch the photographs and videos after the jump if you are too emotional.

 

This Italian cheese is known as casu marzu or “rotten cheese”. It is made of sheep milk and has a little something extra.

Casu marzu is noteworthy for containing live insect larvae.

The cheese is found mostly in Sardinia. It goes beyond typical fermentation as white wriggling maggots break down and decompose its fats changing the texture of the cheese and making it soft with liquid inside.

This is one of the most dangerous cheeses in the world. Its one piece can be populated by thousands of worms. Some people take the maggots out of the cheese before consuming and others don’t.

Casu marzu is illegal. It is banned by Italian health laws.

Good for the Italians, that they also invented pizza and pasta (after the Chinese), otherwise they would be on the same step as British for this excellent piece of not-even-close-to-being-eatable haut cuisine.

Its also listed as one of the top 10 or 15 dangerous foods in the world because of the insect larvae which can migrate to internal organs outside of the stomach and reek havoc. in AD 73 Jewish Zealots defending a mountaintop fortress named Masada against a Roman army totaling 5000 strong used a fear inducing tactic of force feeding a goat cabbage leaves stuffed with maggots then letting it out a day later to wander down and get caught by the Roman soldiers. When the goat was butchered to be eaten the maggots were found infesting the liver and other internal organs of the goat and was seen as an omen or sign of one of their gods anger.
