Italy & France – Corsica and Sardinia Traditional Cheeses
Episode 2, from Season 4
Despite their close proximity to one another, Corsica and Sardinia have distinctly different cheese traditions. While sampling Corsica’s renowned Brocciu, a soft ewe's milk cheese, Will is introduced to a traditional version ripened with maggots. After a short ferry ride and a drive into the beautiful mountains of Sardinia, he meets a rock-star shepherd and discovers an ancient curd cheese that is matured in a goat’s stomach. He then learns all about authentic Pecorino Fiore Sardo, an exceptional cheese that is hand made by shepherds, and then smoked over an open fire.
