Vegan cheese

I have a vegan friend. I keep asking if you can be a vegan and give up every meat except bacon.

Chef Daniel Angerer is letting diners at Klee Brasserie munch on cheese made from his wife’s breast milk.

“It tastes like cow’s-milk cheese, kind of sweet,” he told The Post.

The flavor depends on what the cheese is served with — Angerer recommends a Riesling — and “what the mother eats,” said Angerer, who once bested Bobby Flay on TV’s “Iron Chef.”

Unfortunately, at this point, the cheese can’t be produced without adding a bit of cow milk – but vegans everywhere are no doubt hoping that a workaround can be found…
