    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.

    OK NICK (or was that MIKEY) we'll let you.
    You'd have to be late thirtys to remember that great commercial...get mikey let mikey try it.
    Curious minds want to know...was it the thrill factor, plain curiosity or aphrodisiac factor that intrgues you?

    bring it on

    probably plain curiosity - there are things out there that, if you dont try them , you may never know - it may just be the best thing that you have ever tried.

    Id probably just flick the crawling b'stards off.

    After all, just about the only things i wont eat is offal and pre digested food.

    Great idea, Nick, but how do you keep the little ones alive while cooking and serving? Work out the logistics, and you've got a fondue that you don't have to dip in; it comes to you!

    i think this could be what we are looking for - we could use casu marzu to fondue our "noahs ark".

    Or atleast a stuffing.
