Abstract Despite their close proximity to each other, Mediterranean Islands Corsica and Sardinia have distinctly different cheese traditions. Corsica is renowned for its soft sheep's milk cheese, Brocciu, but there is also Sartinese which is made with either sheep's or goat's milk, but then is left to age so that maggots can "whip" the texture. A short ferry ride to Sardinia and Will discovers the ancient curd cheese matured in a goat's stomach. Finally there is the authentic Sardinian Pecorino Sardo, hand made by shepherds and then smoked over an open fire.
