Human Cheese (video on youtube)

This is freakin' hilarious for several reasons, but for two personal reasons in particular:

1) It speaks loud and clear to a little breastmilk story I relate in Chapter 17 about making White Russians.

2) On my recent "mini-book-reading-tour" in Milwaukee without baby Maya-Rae (who just turned 2 last Sunday!), I had some surplus milk to get rid of. On my way to "pump and dump," Robert stopped me. He was baking bread and thought it would be a waste for me to dump my liquid gold, so he replaced the 1/2 cup of soy milk that his recipe called for with, you guessed it, the 1/2 cup of my breastmilk I was about to pour down his kitchen sink. Later, we all agreed it was "The Breast Bread Ever!" Yummy, yum, yum!

Anyway, watch this video & I challenge you not to be able to crack the hell up!

From the Mothering Magazine website:
Human Cheese
While a quick Google search yields plenty of legitimate recipes for foods made with breastmilk, this video is a tongue-in-cheek spoof: "human cheese" is presented as a safe, trustworthy alternative to bovine dairy products. It's funny and got us curious—if you've actually cooked with breastmilk, send your recipes to

The inspiration:

“Cheese is the soul of the soil. It is the purest and most romantic link between humans and the earth.” Pierre Androuet.

The challenge:

GK Chesterton: “The poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.”


This book is a poetic view of 30 of the best loved French cheeses with an additional two odes to cheese. Recipes, wine pairing, three short stories and an educational section complete the book.

A unique and amusing Christmas present for all food lovers
