article imageBreast milk ice cream goes on sale in London restaurant

By Kev Hedges     Feb 25, 2011 in Food
Covent Garden - A restaurant in central London's Covent Garden district is selling ice cream on its menu made from human breast milk. The milk, donated by 35-year-old Victoria Hiley, is churned and served as ice cream with a wafer.
The dessert called Baby Gaga can be served with Calpol as an option. The natural delicacy will set you back £14 ($23) for the dish at Icecreamists. Restaurant owner Matt O'Connor advertised for breast milk donations on the internet and he believes the dessert will be a big hit.
The exotic restaurant has been described as, "More Sid and Nancy than Ben and Jerry's" by top people's store Selfridge's. Mr O'Connor believes that if breast milk is good enough for our babies then it must be good enough for everyone else. He told BBC London, "Some people will hear about it and go yuck - but actually it's pure organic, free-range and totally natural."
The milk, which has been medically-tested and approved, fetches £15 for every ounce Mrs Hiley produces. She has called the idea "a great recession beater", as reported in Asylum.
