When I got an e-mail from momlogic.com entitled "I Served Breast Milk
Risotto -- My Guests Loved it!" I was taken aback. I'm a firm proponent
of breastfeeding but I had never in my wildest dreams considered using
breast milk in cooking.
I figured this was an isolated incident. In the article Dr. Wendy Walsh
talks about how her daughter's father, a vegetarian, dumped a bottle of
breast milk into the mushroom risotto she was cooking for her brother
and his girlfriend. Reportedly they all enjoyed the meal which Walsh
reported was "lovely."
Then I heard about a chef from a New York City restaurant that made
breast milk cheese.In Feburary, Chef Daniel Angerer of Klee Brasserie
posted on his blog about making cheese from his wife's breast milk. He
called it is "a whole other level of natural." He even posts a recipe
for the cheese on his blog.
Patrons at his Chelsea restaurant wanted to try the human milk cheese
so he started offering customers samples of the cheese.
Angerer told the New York Daily Post the response has been generally
positive from those who've tried the cheese, although some customers are
too squeamish to attempt it.
Reportedly Angerer's wife is now asking her husband to make gelato.
