recipes & lifehacks
Casu marzu is made from traditional Sardinian pecorino cheese. It is left in the sun for a few days, so the flies, attracted by the smell, lay their eggs, and then send the head of the cheese to the pantry, where the larvae have matured, accelerating the ripening of cheese.
You can eat cheese with maggots, they are small, but they can jump 15 centimeters in height, so before eating cheese do not forget to protect your face - larvae may well get into your eyes or nose.
It is best to eat cheese with bread and a strong wine. Connoisseurs say that the taste of the cheese pungent and spicy, but you need to try casu marzu yourself :)
