Weekend Dining Tips

(Winterthur Resort, Switzerland) For those customers who apparently resent being weaned from their mothers' nursing, the Storchen restaurant is preparing dishes with human breast milk. According to Hans Locher, Switzerland's most controversial restaurant owner:

"I first experimented with breast milk when my daughter was born. One can cook really delicious things with it."
Paid about $6 a pint, donors are constantly being sought.

For those individuals concerned about growth hormones in cows' milk, you might want to pass on ordering the human breast milk dishes. Nobody has a clue what miscellaneous goodies could be in it. There appears to be a legal loophole.

"They are not on the list of approved species such as cows and sheep, but they are also not on the list of the banned species such as apes and primates," Rolf Etter of the Zurich food control laboratory said.
Fortunately, since the menu at the Storchen restaurant specifies that the dishes are made with human breast milk, it's logical to assume that no dishes are prepared using milky discharges from other parts of the human body. To be certain, consult your waiter.

By the way, it's notable that humans are not considered to be primates in Switzerland.
