One man serves cheese made from his wife's breastmilk at his restaurant as an appy!

I can't wait to hear all of ur comments......


New York City chef Daniel Angerer is letting diners at Klee Brasserie munch on cheese made from his wife's breast milk. With his wife on board with the plan to offer a bit of herself in the name of culinary art, Angerer began experimenting with making cheese out of his wife’s breast milk. Turned out it worked pretty well — two gallons of breast milk, some curdling and two weeks of aging produced a sweet cheese with a taste not far removed from the more familiar cow’s milk cheese.

When Angerer posted a recipe for “My Spouse’s Mommy’s Milk Cheese” on his blog, customers began calling his eatery begging for a taste. So he began offering an appetizer of breast-milk cheese with figs and Hungarian pepper at Klee Brasserie. While response has been generally positive, Angerer and Mason admit the dish has been a decided turnoff to some.

“I think a lot of the criticism has to do with the combination of sex and cheese,” Mason told the New York Post. “But the breast is there to make food.”

TODAY tested how much of an “eww” factor comes from mommy’s milk cheese Monday when hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb displayed a platter of the Klee’s canapés to the show’s crew. Kotb was amazed no one would take the bait. “Not one taker? You get 100 bucks for being on camera!” she said.

Finally, restaurant owner Billy Dec of Chicago eatery Sunda came onto the set and offered to be the human guinea pig, even though he had missed hearing the appetizer was made from breast milk. After tasting, he nonchalantly said, “It’s cheese,”

Not a chance.... I wouldn't even taste my own breast milk, let alone eat someone else's, regardless of what they turn it into ! I always did love the smell of my daughters breath when she was breastfeed though, very sweet.



You have no idea what that women has been eatting and drinking before expressing that milk, so you have no idea what your putting into your own system. Lucky for me, I'm lactose Intolerant.... so I have to pass.... you know, allergic ! Hehehe

We always thought mine smelled like Graham crackers. Luckily the poop didn't smell too bad then either. *whew*

I tasted my breast milk when I was bfing (I had pumped a bottle and was warming it)...it tasted like dairy queen soft serve. Now on the other hand, I tried formula while I was supplementing my daughter and that stuff is just plain NASTY.

And, I would probably try an item that was baked...to me, it's the germs and stuff that would bother me more than the idea of drinking human milk. But, the idea still makes me think "ick" a little bit.

My thing is, I don't drink raw cow or goat's milk, so why would I drink or eat raw milk from a person? Perhaps if it were pasteurized...

I asked my husband if he would eat cheese, yogurt and butter made from my breast milk and he said, "of course!" It would be a great way to save on groceries.

Jocelyn, I really tried to get John to taste the mommy-milk yogurt before we gave it to her, since he likes and eats regular yogurt, and it makes me retch. I wanted to be sure it was "okay" before I tried to feed it to her...it was a complete no-go. He acted like I was asking him to try dog shit, lol!

Yeah, I have to say no to this as well. I did make yogurt for Molly out of my own milk...I never ate it, but I don't like yogurt to begin with. She liked it, though!

I love cheese but I don't know anything about this woman, where she has been or if she cleaned her nipples. So, no thanks. If it was my own milk though, I'd definitely try it!

I just watched a clip on this. I looked like a cheese ball; covered with almonds or something. There were a few people talking about it and apparently it was a nice sweet soft cheese. I'm not sure I could try a strangers cheese, but if my best friend made some, sure I'd give it a go.

Is it like Camembert? Gouda? Gruyere? It would really depend on the type of cheese.
