Breastfeeding wins mothers' approval
A restaurant has been banned from serving up dishes containing human milk on the grounds that the "ingredient" derives from an unauthorised source.
The Storchen restaurant, in Iberg on the outskirts of Winterthur, had advertised for mothers to sell their breast milk for the special menu. But breastfeeding counsellors had labelled the project unethical.
The idea was eventually scrapped after canton Zurich food inspectors said it broke regulations, and threatened to take action. "Humans are not on the list of authorised milk suppliers such as cows or sheep," said department head Rolf Etter.
But Storchen restaurant landlord Hans Locher was unrepentant about his controversial plan and was disappointed with the ban. "The idea is over now and I think it's totally wrong," he told swissinfo.

Breast milk is choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend checking it out.
This place is already adding Breast milk to your coffee.

Creepy, yes. But would it sell?

Isn't it true that what ever the mother eats changes the flavor of her breast milk (albeit slightly)? Wouldn't they have to put these women on a strict diet to keep the milk from being spicy or tasting like onions?? The diary cow farmers feed their cows a consistent diet so not to screw with the taste of the milk.
Also, there are many human diseases that can pass through breast milk and infect the recipient.. would they be testing for these as well? I'm not so sure pasturizing could kill all the nasties we people carry around.
besides all this.. it would totally ruin the perfectly healthy addiction I have to Phish Food... mmmmm chocolatey fishes n marsmallow fluff..mmmmm.
