I can't believe this is actually happening. I've eaten some weird stuff.... but I don't think I could stomach this.

It's probably the most preferable part of the human anatomy to make cheese from.

Very thought-provoking and disturbs our set psychological barriers. While at the same time, one of the most natural foods ever. I have to say that I wouldn't try it.

I used to live across the street and go to Klee all the time - he's a great chef and she's one of the best restaurant manager/owner I know.

Needs to be said:

This thread is useless without pics.

When you marry the cow, you can get all the milk you want. I finally know what that saying means. (Not to insinuate the lady in question is bovine.)

I don't know if having a personal relationship with her would make it harder or easier for me to swallow. I guess it's akin to when people have http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Placentophagy parties with their friends.

OK ... it is. I think I could eat the cheese before the placenta.

Only if it was served straight from the breast!

I just heard about this on the Tony Kornheiser show on my drive into work. I wouldn't try it, but it doesn't inherently offend me.

Something that puts a little more context behind this... maybe

"Discrimination Against Nursing Mothers at the International Restaurant and Food Services Show of New York"

I was truly outraged to hear this news from Lori Mason, co-owner of Klee Restaurant, who attempted to attend the International Restaurant and Food Services Show of New York.

Lori, who is a new mother to a beautiful baby girl, is quite amazing. She has been juggling the considerable challenges of running a restaurant while caring for (and nursing) her newborn.

On Sunday, she and her husband, Klee's chef Daniel Angerer, made their way to the International Restaurant and Food Service Show of New York. They packed up their baby and ventured out to enjoy the day only to be turned away and kicked out because the show forbids infants. Since Lori is nursing, she could not leave the baby at home (if you have nursed, you know that you can't go away for hours without pumping, and it's not like she's going to bring her pump with her to the Show.) She and Daniel were asked to leave. She asked to speak to a manager who also insisted that they leave.

I will be following up with the New York State Restaurant Association about this rule, which to me makes little sense and stinks of sex discrimination against nursing mothers who also happen to be restaurateurs. I understand that the NYSRA may be required to refuse admittance to minors, but an exception for nursing mothers and their infants seems logical and necessary since many of the women restaurateurs in our city are in fact mothers, too.

It's hard enough to try to do it all, without having the rug pulled out from under us. And here's a woman who's really doing it all, and wants to participate in her industry's events, and she is turned away. Disgusting.

As Lori wrote in an email to me, "Men go to show and mommy goes home with baby. Is this 2010?"

Stay tuned for more from the NYSRA.

I don't think that I would want to try the cheese, but when you think about it, really this is no weirder than eating cheese made from cow's milk (or simply drinking cow's milk, for that matter, which is obviously intended for calves, not for humans).

NFW!

I think I'd do it, if only to push my own boundaries. It shouldn't be that weird when you consider what else we eat, but it's definitely not something that sounds wonderfully appetizing.
