Chef at Chelsea restaurant offers customers a taste of cheese made from his wife's breast milk
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.

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 canape of breast-milk cheese with figs and Hungarian pepper."

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.

Mason politely declines the offer. "I'm not here to walk people through their psychological problems," she said.

    "You know, except my husband."

    It's like sugary 2% milk left over after cold cereal, after it has had time to warm up.

      The quoted text says he cheated by adding "a little" cow milk to "round out the texture". So maybe "a little" means "a lot" and "round out" means "make it work at all".

    Now how am I going to erase this poor woman's face from my mind now?

    Thanks for nothing, JWZ.

    So you can serve breastmilk-cheese in New York, but you can't serve a beer in PA if it's not on the state's official list, or even if it's called "Ale" instead of "Beer" or whatever. That makes so much sense!

    Wait a minute... breast-cheese doesn't contain alcohol, so you could probably serve this at the DNA Lounge without interference from the ABC. Just don't make a breast-milk martini, and everything will be fine.
