In Sardinia they eat a special cheese called Casu Marzu. Its distinctive flavor (and texture, I'm guessing) comes compliments of the maggots which are allowed (nay, encouraged) to breed there. Unfortunately the cheese is seasonal, so we didn't have the opportunity to not eat it while in Sardinia last year. And I think it might be banned on the mainland.

I'd never seen a picture of it, so I just looked it up. Looks innocuous enough....

I thought it was a bread bowl. That's cheese?
