Category Archives: breast milk


Jocky of The Fat Duck asked we once if I knew where to find human breast milk. Next to making somebody pregnant, I also proposed to recreate the breast milk by a combination of other ingredients. We are not there yet, but as we have the analysis, we can already suggest what to combine with breast milk.

This Foodpairing tree of human breast milk shows some possible combinations;

One of the shops selling breast milk icecream is Icecreamists, located in Covent garden in London. They created a breastmilk, lemon zest, vanilla ice cream, called the Baby Gaga (what’s in a name). more info you can find in this article by the Daily mail. I have no clue if this is a nice icecream (and not only shocking), do you? And what else would you combine with breast milk? Make a mayonnaise with it and serve it with french fries?

The interchangeability of the breast milk could also be nice for a marshmallow Dominique Persoone once made for our The Flemish Primitives (left upper corner). The other ones are a Foodpairing with grass, a praline filled with water and the last making a Foodpairing link to the sea with oyster and salt.
