NYC Restaurateur Serving Wife’s Breast Milk Cheese

Is it just me, or is this a total gross-out? As reported in the New York Post:

This Chelsea restaurant has gone from brasserie to brassiere. Chef Daniel Angerer is letting diners at Klee Brasserie munch on cheese made from his wife’s breast milk.

“It tastes like cow’s-milk cheese, kind of sweet,” he told The Post.

The flavor depends on what the cheese is served with — Angerer recommends a Riesling — and “what the mother eats,” said Angerer, who once bested Bobby Flay on TV’s “Iron Chef.”

Breast milk doesn’t curdle well due to its low protein content, so a little moo juice has to be added to round out the texture, Angerer said. After blogging about his efforts with the human cheese, customers started demanding a sample, he said.

“The phone was ringing off the hook,” the chef said. “So I prepared a little canapé of breast-milk cheese with figs and Hungarian pepper.”

The response has been generally positive from those who’ve tried the cheese, although many customers are too squeamish to attempt it. “I think a lot of the criticism has to do with the combination of sex and cheese, but . . . the breast is there to make food,” said Lori Mason, the chef’s wife.

Since the restaurant began offering customers a taste, Mason has been inundated with creepy queries, she said. “Some people who clearly have issues have . . . e-mailed me saying, ‘I wasn’t breast-fed as a child, so can I taste your breast milk?’ ” she said…

    A few years ago, me and my buddy put together a business plan for collecting and selling lactating celebrity breastmilk butter. We figured we could sell Gwyneth Paltrow's butter for a hefty price to discriminating clientele. (with Ms. Paltrow's consent, of course)

    Ew. Humans are apparently running out of weird things to eat, I guess boob juice is going to be the newest fad. Couldn't you sick fucks just have stuck with chocolate covered crickets? This is as gross as that semen cookbook. What'll be next? Blood? Mucus? Maybe shit.
