Add this one to the marketing playbook! Our story about Daniel Angerer making cheese from his wife’s breast milk has turned the Klee Brasserie (Bra-sserie?) chef into somewhat of an international sensation. It was picked up everywhere from London’s Daily Mail to the Toronto Star, and now the Post chimes in to ask the Health Department what it thinks about the chef’s “canapé of breast-milk cheese with figs and Hungarian pepper” and his wife’s idea of breast-milk gelato.

After inquiries from The Post, health bigs said yesterday that even though department codes do not explicitly forbid the practice, they have advised Angerer to refrain from sharing his wife’s milk with the world.

“The restaurant knows that cheese made from breast milk is not for public consumption, whether sold or given away,” a spokeswoman for the city Department of Health said.

Now look what you’ve done, New York Post! First you trigger a smoking crackdown, and now you’ve gone and ruined “human cheese” for everyone!
