Last week, we brought you news about Chef Daniel Angerer’s special cheese made from his wife’s breast milk, and boy did that open a can of worms! While we expected knee-jerk ‘EEEWWW‘ reactions from people, we didn’t really imagine the extent to which people would get up in arms about breast milk cheese – something which in our minds is totally natural, organic, and not gross in the slightest. People got so concerned about the breastmilk cheese issue that apparently the New York Department of Health came to pay Angerer a visit over the weekend.
Well you can rest assured that Angerer’s “My Spouse’s Mommy Milk Cheese” is not being sold to the public at his restaurant, Klee Brasserie – he confirmed that on the radio today. But we still don’t see what is so awful or scary about the idea of serving, local, organic, healthy cheese made from breast milk. How is this any less gross than eating cheese that came from the manure-covered teat of a factory-farmed, hormone-laden, antibiotics laden cow? After all, you have to admit that when it comes to foods that are organic, local, natural and free, human breast milk ticks all the boxes. And, remember, the stuff is naturally DESIGNED to be the ultimate human sustenance. So what do you think? Would you eat cheese made of human breast milk?
