Cheese In The News – Vol. 6

breast nipples


Hmm…what does one do with all that extra milk Mommy pumped? New York chef, Daniel Angerer, actually made cheese out his wife’s breast milk.  If that isn’t f*cked up enough, he’s serving it with figs and Hungarian pepper at his restaurant, Klee Brasserie.  I reread the article several times and kept having this one reccuring thought: what kind of wine does one serve with …Boobrie?…Mammabrie?  Ideas, anyone?

When good cheese goes bad!  Speaking of Camembert (ok, so I wasn’t, big deal), the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control has issued a warning regarding Moonstruck Organic Camembert cheese.  There’s been a province wide recall after one wheel was found to contain the listeria monocytogenes bacteria (Say that 5 times fast, I dare ya!).  So far nobody’s gotten sick.  Well, nobody’s filed a law suit, in any case.

When good cheese goes bad…the sequel.  Emmi-Roth Käse USA is recalling  Spreadables cheese spreads that may be contaminated with Salmonella.  And here I thought that being “spreadable” was enough of a reason for a recall.  They’re recalling the Crab Creole and Shrimp Scampi cheese spreads.  Wait a minute!  Crab Creole?  Shrimp Scampi?  This is not cheese!  This is not even pretending to be cheese.  Who buys this crap anyway?

Here are two words I never thought I’d use in the same sentence: Mapleton Taxidermy and Cheese Store.  Yup, you read that right.  This is really a store in Ontario, run by a married couple.  He’s a taxidermist, she makes cheese.  Because you always want a really good Havarti when you’re getting your beaver stuffed…um…oh, come on!  You didn’t really expect me NOT to write it, did you?

And now I know the world is ending.  In my last Cheese News, I wrote about the ridiculous amount of crime happening at Chuck E. Cheese’s around the country.  I was amazed.  I was outraged.  I was baffled.  Today I stumbled across a snippet of a similar blog post.  I immediately went to check it out.  Imagine my panic, my dismay, my outright horror when I discovered that I blogged about the same thing as… had the same idea as,…I can’t even write it…Peh…Per…Pere…nope, my fingers refuse to type his name.  Just go look.  Don’t hold it against me.  I promise, it’ll NEVER happen again.

BTW, thank you to Jayne for being a vigilant cheese-watcher!
