For this episode we're travelling to the small Italian island of Sardinia where we explore the a generations long delicacy known as Casu Marzu. While the Sardinian people love it, it's been named as the worlds most dangerous cheese by the Guinness Book Of Records and has been made illegal to buy or sell all throughout Europe!
