So you can see that when I run across something like this, I have to bring it up.
Have you heard of this guy? Chef Daniel Angerer?
I had not, until today when an email arrived in my inbox. It contained this link
Here is the gist of it:
This guy, who is a chef. and his "spouse" had a baby. Apparently she is pumping like a madwoman (it does not state why she pumps), so much so that they ran out of freezer space! She is in the process of applying to become a donor, which totally rocks! Yeah milk donors! (...had to get that in there. :)
Anyhow, in the mean time they were not sure what to do with all the milk. This truly baffles me as supply=demand. Perhaps she should slow down the pumping? Well, that is not what this article was about so the details are few...left to my wild and CRAZY imagination. Dangerous.
But the chef got an idea. Let's make breastmilk cheese!
I can assure you this is the last thought that would cross my mind if put in the very same situation.
But he did.
And here is the result:

Doesn't it look just yummy?
The good news is you can age it, to get different flavors; roll it in ground mushrooms, or nuts...the possibilities are endless.
Tell me, what would you do if you had too much milk? Would you make cheese? Or...something else?
