How to make Maggot Cheese


  • 1 wheel of Pecorino cheese


Step 1: Make a wheel of Pecorino cheese and place mature cheese wheel outdoors.

Step 2: Allow the Pioplhila casei, or cheese fly, to lay eggs in cheese.

Step 3: Wait for the eggs to hatch and begin eating the cheese. The cheese is ready to eat when it becomes soft and begins to weep its liquid-y goodness. But you won’t see it through the hard aged exterior. Practice makes perfect.
