Keeping on top of the media sensation that is Daniel Angerer’s “Mommy’s Milk Cheese” is like trying to chase an out-of-control toddler. The compassionate concoction has some skeptics who claim that the only thing that goes with this food is whine, but the fromomage has also attracted some intrigued fans.
Famed foodie and critic Gael Greene tasted it and declared the flavor “quite bland, slightly sweet, the mild taste overwhelmed by the accompanying apricot preserves and a sprinkle of paprika. It’s the unexpected texture that’s so off-putting. Strangely soft, bouncy, like panna cotta.” But over at the Today Show, one unsuspecting eater found no difference between mommy’s cheese and animal-derived cheese. The sneak-attack taste-test starts at 7:34:
PETA’s on board with human breast-milk cheese, and no one makes the argument better than the lactating lady herself, Lori Mason, who said, “People are eating milk from a cow or a goat or a yak or whatever and the milk from those animals feed their young just like the milk from humans feed their young. And while adults of most species aren’t meant to eat dairy or drink milk, we do. So if anything, it’s less of a stretch to eat human’s milk. … It’s the most nutritious thing on the planet for humans.”
