The owner of the Storchen restaurant in the exclusive Winterthur resort will improve his menu with local specialities such as meat stew and various soups and sauces containing at least 75 per cent of mother's milk.
"We have all been raised on it. Why should we not include it into our diet?" Hans Locher, who has become Switzerland most controversial restaurant owner, said.
Mr Locher attracted the attention of the leading media of the German-speaking world this week after he posted ads looking for women donors who will receive just over £3 (US$5.4) for 14 ounces of their milk
He said: "I first experimented with breast milk when my daughter was born.
"One can cook really delicious things with it. However, it always needs to be mixed with a bit of whipped cream, in order to keep the consistency."
The authorities do not share Locher’s enthusiasm. Zurich’s regulatory body, the Association of Swiss Milk Producers, has threatened lawsuits against Locher and any of the donors.
“I don’t understand all the controversy,” Locher said. “The mother’s milk is the most natural thing in the world, how can anyone be against it? It is, after all, the first thing we taste and I see no reason why I should not include it in my menu.”
So far in his experiments, he has produced breast milk soup, breast milk lamb curry and antelope steak with chanterelle sauce with breast milk and cognac.
