Mothers' Milk Feast - Wordless Wednesday

Could you remember what your mother's milk taste like? Would you like to have a taste of mother's milk? At the beginning of this year, there was a restaurant that served dishes using mothers' milk in China. It received lots of criticism and was later closed down.

These nursing mothers were recruited from the village to provide milk daily for the restaurant.

The mothers' milk was used to cook these dishes of the restaurant.

  7. I have not heard of such feast. Thanks for sharing.

    Maybe the mothers' milk can be saved to feed babies in hunger? Aiya, occupational hazard again.

  15. As Angel says, it's the sort of story where one can't think of something to say!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  20. Sometimes China really can come up with the unthinkable

    ReplyDelete
  21. I do EWWWWWWWWWWW lol thanks for sharing! Good WW to you!

    ReplyDelete
  22. eek...
    well the guys would probably like it more... :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. China certainly has thought of everything. Mothers' milk certainly has antibodies to enhance one's immunity, but if any baby's diet had to suffer because of this, that is unacceptable.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yep. I'm speechless. For once in my life, I'm just speechless. Except for EEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWW!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. 1st response: eewww. 2nd thought: why not, actually? And it's probably very healthy?

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have one word....GROSS!!! Happy WW and thanks for making me gag;)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow, really? You always have such interesting posts!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I am amazed at the health hazards of AIDs and such passed on. That is so horribly disrespectful to Mothers and the children as well.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Disgusting ! and these poor women were used as milk cows ! and their own babies were probably starving !

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'll give them credit for creativity. That's what I love about the world: anything goes. And as long as nobody gets hurt, it works for me!

    (Though I wouldn't have eaten there...I dunno, just a little too weird for me.)

    I hope your mother-in-law's doing better. I share your anger toward the idiots who did this to her. She's in my prayers.

    My latest image is now up, too:

  31. That's a new twist on "all natural" ingredients. lol
    Happy WW!

    ReplyDelete
  32. That's so disturbing to me! I'm a nursing mom and I've never even thought to try my own milk. And I highly doubt I ever will. I wonder what made them think of that??? Interesting post!

    My Wordless Wednesday is up too! Have a great day! :)

  46. I don't see why not... Cows are moms too and majority of people finds normal to drink their milk...

    Honestly, I prefer soy milk! LOL

    Great WW entry! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Very interesting - mothers milk to cook.

    Thanks for sharing

    ReplyDelete
  48. Waaah I am not only wordless, but speechless, appetite-less and totally grossed out! Not only is it unethical, its also kind of perverse actually.

    My question then is what do the babies of those mothers drink then? Cow's milk?

    ReplyDelete
  49. arrrghh, since some viruses/bacteria can be passed to breastmilk and dont know this kampung women got or not..sorry ler, hv to pass!

    ReplyDelete
  50. The restaurant is named after Mother's Milk but I think they use other milk lah! Errr.....or some diluted liquid paper with artificial flavorings!!! :O

    ReplyDelete
  51. LOL, you've really stirred up some feelings with all the people here, by the sound of the comments. Out of 6 children, I'm the only one that didn't get nursed, so never did taste Mom's milk. I think I'd likely choose to 'pass' on the restaurant you tell us of. Great post!!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. eeewwwwwww yucks! my god! the china ppl really best la! first eat any creatures with legs, then drink mama's milk pulakkk *pengsan*

    ReplyDelete
  53. I think you've perhaps missed the meaning of the word "wordless"...

    ReplyDelete
  54. This is mega-geli lah... When once I saw my confinement lady drink MY leftover breastmilk, I almost PENGSAN!!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Don't tell me they show the process of churning out the milk as well...OMG. That's one restaurant I wouldn't want to visit!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oh..boy... Yucks... I'm speechless. But I think I still want to say something. Since you said it is cooked, so I assume it is hot one. But, do they serve non-cooked mother's milk?

    ReplyDelete
  57. Speechless ...

    I don't think I can remember. I know it is good stuff but ...

    Hang on, what's wrong with human milk. We drink cow milk, milked from the nipples (or whatever it calls) of the cows daily?

    What so repulsive about human milk anyway?

    Still speechless.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I have tasted my own breastmilk before - just to see why my kids are so "addicted" Very sweet and nice leh! :P

    ReplyDelete
