It's not so great, according to one food critic

(Newser) – Longtime restaurant critic Gael Greene did not race to Daniel Angerer's Klee Brasserie for a serving of his wife's breast milk cheese, but she nonetheless found herself squeamishly preparing for a taste test. Though the Health Department banned him from serving it after a New York Post article, Angerer gives Greene a taste—nested on pickle rounds and a thin slice of bread—from his "private stash," she writes for the Daily Beast. Her verdict? "Eeeeew!"

"Surprise. It’s not the flavor that shocks me—indeed, it is quite bland, slightly sweet, the mild taste overwhelmed by the accompanying apricot preserves and a sprinkle of paprika," she continues. "It’s the unexpected texture that’s so off-putting. Strangely soft, bouncy, like panna cotta." She does award Angerer points for being "adventurous." Coming next, if the chef's wife, Lori Mason, has her way: breast milk gelato.

She could have made cheese with that milk instead.
