Mommy’s Milk Cheese: Breast Milk Cheese by Chef Daniel Angerer

New York City chef and new dad, Daniel Angerer has added cheese made from his wife’s breast milk to his menu. While eccentric foodies and their culinary masters sometimes travel great lengths to procure hard-to-find ingredients that satiate exotic palates and put them on the cutting edge of innovation, Angerer found his “gold” ingredient right at home… sleeping next to him. But his idea to make cheese from breast milk could possibly be one of the year’s biggest D.I. Why? moments.

This is possibly where locavore enthusiasm, a preference for humane dairy products, and the blurry mind state that too many sleepless nights as a new parent intersect — but who am I to judge? The chef calls his creation Mommy’s Milk Cheese and has been offering patrons of Klee Brasserie recipes and tips.

“Being a chef,” Angerer explained to Grub Street, “you’re curious about anything in terms of flavor — you look out for something new and what you can do with it.” “We’re just grateful that he didn’t get any ideas about his wife’s placenta,” says the Village Voice. And I’m sure we can all agree on that note.

Did I mention that this is a D.I.Y. post? Yes, you too can create your own Mommy’s Milk Cheese by following Angerer’s recipe posted on his blog… a state of lactation and breast milk expressor are, of course, required.

    At the poster above, his wife obliged. Don’t slant your comments into some “pushaw men” ideology
    simply because this article discomforts you.

    Grocery stores sell the bodily fluid of cows to…adults AND children. GROSS.

  4. ktfoto says:

    The milk from regular cheese comes from the teets of cows and goats…why does that not disgust you?
    Get over it or don’t eat it.

    you think his wife’s bodily fluids are more disgusting than a mommy COW’s bodily fluids? think about that. ive been talkin about getting pregnant only to make dairy products from my own milk. this guy beat me to it – i cant believe it! a man! of course, always stealing women’s genius ideas! just wait till i get knocked up!

    Viruses such as HIV can be transmitted through breastmilk.

  7. bemita3 says:

    This is a great way to have your children eat cheese. Stop buying that processed garbage and fresh breast milk is the best! Not to mention as breast feeding mothers we eat sooo healthy…it can only be full of the best vitamins!
    For the HIV comment…do your research, if you cook the milk it kills any bact. So it is really safe. But again if you don’t like the idea…DON’T TRY IT!

    For bemita3
    HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency VIRUS. Virus’ are not killed by heating or cooling for that matter ( I think you are confusing them with Bacteria which are indeed killed by excessive heat).

    Just further info: Virus are non-biological matter that is capable of generating a protective covering around it when faced with inhospitable environments, such as excess heat or cold. That is why we Vaccinate against viruses. A vaccination is a “diluted” form of the virus (such as the Flu vaccine), which is injected in our bodies. This is done to stimulate our immune system to produce anti-bodies against that virus that are capable of combating the actual ‘infection’ virus. Finally, the reason why HIV is so deadly is that it attacks the immune system itself. That is why a vaccine for this is difficult to generate.

  9. CP says:

    am’s comment about viruses not is wildly inaccurate.

    Viruses are indeed killed by heating, more readily than bacteria since viruses can’t sporulate. Some viruses are comparatively resistant to heat-killing, but a boil will kill almost any virus.

    There is an infectious agent that can’t be destroyed by (ordinary) boiling: prions, the causative agent in bovine spongiform encephalopathy/”mad cow disease”. But these are unrelated to viruses.

    i’m pretty sure no one with HIV is gonna make cheese out of their breast milk and feed it to other people so let’s not get our panties in a bunch.

    that aside, GROSS. really really gross. goat cheese is about as far as i’m gonna go.

  11. hottienewyork says:

    I can only imagine his wife coming into the kitchen and all chefs start milking her.
    This is a very STUPID media stunt and he will have to pay very badly for this.
    HORRIBLE. But with one benefit, his wife’s breast has become very famous.

  12. dcmama says:

    If my husband was a chef, and willing, I would DEFINITELY ask him to make some breastmilk cheese for me. Well, not for me, for our one year old. I cannot think of a better snack… except breastmilk yogurt!

  13. saradpk says:

    HIV is spread even through heating!!! and Dr. Manny Alvarez will show you exactly how you can get HIV through breastmilk cheese.
