Cheese Confessionals: I Ate Casu Marzu, aka "Maggot Cheese"
Casu Marzu, otherwise known as "maggot cheese," is the infamous curd made with the help of live, writhing maggots. While not for sale in the U.S., Anna Ward discovered it in her New York neighborhood -- and ate it.
Undaunted, I raised my slice, only to see that it was actually writhing with squirmy little worms. Even as they jumped off my plate, I knew I couldn't back down.
