Get your NOM on.

Oh hi there.
I'm Kelly and my passion in life is food!
My life revolves around it.
At the moment I am studying to a be a Dietitian and one day want to open my own Eatery. Being a student means I am BROKE and never have enough time for anything, especially eating good.
I also have a carnivore partner and his name is Joel. I am a vegetarian and need to find ways to feed and satisfy both our cravings.

Here I will document this journey.

Enjoy.

So , I am a huge fan of cheese  !!
But not with live stuff on it. EEk.
Yup, this cheese isfound in Sardinia, Italy. 
Surprisingly though the one place people want to eat this cheese it was illegal for a time beacuse of food- hygine laws? Weird.
It is made by
Acquiring some Sardinian Sheep milk cheese
Adding some live insect larvae.
Letting nature and these live insects take course and FERMENT.
The larvae eat through the cheese releasing an acid that then makes the cheese softer.
Precautions to take when eating though
The cheese is eaten with the insects still alive.
The insects are known to be able to jump up to 15 feet so beware they might try to attack.
If you dont want to eat the cheese with the insects still alive you can place the cheese in a bag and  allow the insects to be oxygen deprived causing them to die.
