If my g.i. problems weren't enough, last night I caught the tail end of a story on Ripley's Believe it or Not about the maggoty cheese. It seemed to be set in Italy, but I couldn't be sure- certainly it was Europe. Sure enough, there were the little critters, squirming their way through a creamy yello cheese. They said the cheese was 'powerfully pungent' in flavor. I just about lost it (my dinner), but hung on long enough to be able to report about it to all my ChefTalk friends. BTW, the cheese is illegal in its home country.
