Daniel Angerer, a celebrity chef and owner of Klee Brasserie in New York City, recently got a lot of media attention with his signature dish comprised with cheese made from his wife’s breast milk. Angerer said to the NY Post, “I prepared a little canapé of breast-milk cheese with figs and Hungarian pepper. It tastes like cow’s-milk cheese, kind of sweet.”
Also in the press this week, the Santa Monica, California whale sushi scandal and the response. Japhy Grant a contributor to True/Slant, a news and opinion site, had this to say, “our national horror at eating whale meat isn’t based on any empirical truths, it’s just a cultural choice we make. Unless you’re a hardcore vegan, you’re making morally shaky decisions every day about what you decide to toss into your pie hole and what you won’t, which is why your outrage at another culture’s preference is ultimately little more than gastronomic nationalism.”
Vegan or not, get ready to lose your appetite or find a new flavor combination:
