Breast milk ice-cream

March 2, 2011

There are some things that the world could quite easily live without; certain things that, were they to vanish, nobody would blink. Places, people and objects that really have no place in this world or the next. Switzerland for example. Bono. Big Brother. Ships in bottles. Cucumbers. Rollerblades. Traffic wardens. Touching your nose with your tongue. Justin Bieber and now, breast milk flavoured ice-cream named after Lady Gaga.

A London restaurant, based in Covent Garden, has started selling ice-cream made from breast milk after mother Victoria Hiley responded to an advert placed in a local newspaper asking for volunteers to come forward and donate their milk. Ice-creamist founder, and presumed brains behind the operation, Matt O’Connor has great faith in his new invention, claiming that,

noone’s done anything interesting with ice-cream in the last hundred years.” –

Really? Nobody has done anything interesting to eggs in the last hundred years but it doesn’t mean we have to fill them with breast milk. Come to think of it, nobody has done anything ‘interesting’ to a great many things in the last hundred years for the simple reason that nothing needs to be done. Bacon is perfect, it comes from a pig. Chocolate is perfect. Wine is perfect, it’s made from grapes, not pineapples; and ice- made with 4-legged animal milk – cream is perfect.

As reported by the BBC, the restaurant is proving pretty lac-ticious with the London hip crowd.

We take the blame for this most pointless of culinary desert inventions.

    It is normal to drink cow milk. And sheep milk. And goat milk. And mouse milk. And elephant milk. The luxury milk of humans is surely not supposed to be destined for ice cream parlours in Covent Garden is it?
