One New York chef is bringing new meaning to the term “milking” a situation. Klee Brasserie chef Daniel Angerer has started using his wife’s breast milk to create “Mommy Milk Cheese” and is making it available to any willing patrons. Angerer has posted a recipe for the daring dairy product on his blog so any new parents can make their own.

Yes, you absolutely can!'” PETA, who once lobbied ice cream makers Ben & Jerry’s to start using human milk in their products, blogged that they wholly support the chef’s use of his wife’s milk.
