  • zebra & non-mainstream milks

    Is there anything more ridiculous that a prima donna could request? Culinary-wise that is...

    http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2006470001-2006530321,00.html
    "Head butler at the hotel, Sean Davoren, eventually found a shop which had frozen zebra milk. He said in an interview: “I’m not usually fazed by anything but I thought somebody was taking the mickey here.
    “Luckily, I remembered a fellow who’d helped me before. Sure enough there was a shop at the top of Regents Park where you could buy the stuff.
    “It was £15 a pint and the guest had a pint every day.”

    -------------------
    Buffalo milk is massive in India, especially for curd and cheese making, In Italy, I can think of mozzarella.
    -------------------
    Yak milk is supposed to be a superstar in the milk world, albeit with a bit of a pong; according to Jerry Hopkins , Extreme Cuisine
    yield excellent butter & curd and the flesh is of high quality...
    Yak milk is rich, valued for its 7% fat content , compared to half that for cattle, but it spoils in two hours and local herders had no way to keep it fresh. "When the Swiss faced the same situation" says Ethan Goldings of Trace Foundation a New York based NGO that started bringing medicine and food to Tibetan farmers "they invented cheese technology". A cheese maker was hired to teach others and in a mountain nunnery encircled by snow capped peaks, by 2001 they were producing 1000kgs of cheese per year.
    The butter is better known and is used as a thickener for soups and mixed with ground barley in a tea called tsampa, a drink consumed in vast quantities and at all hours of the day and night...
    The odoour is strong - some insist rancid - yet it is so pervasive that because you cannot avoid it, after a while you stop noticing it. It becomes a part of you.
    And you hold out your cup for more.

    SHEEPS MILK is both nutritious and delicious. The Milk has a rich, bland, slightly sweet taste. It is much higher in total solids than either cow or goat milk and contains up to twice as many of the minerals like calcium, phosphorus and zinc and the all important B group Vitamins.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goat
    Goats milk is more easily digested than cows milk and is recommended for infants and people who have difficulty with cows milk. The curd is much smaller and more digestable. Moreover it is naturally homogenized since it lacks the protein agglutinin. Furthermore, goats milk contains less lactose and is easier to digest, which means it will usually not trigger lactose intolerance in humans.

                    Do the stripes only appear after texturing cause my Zebra milk is just this grey colour.

                      So...If I use tiger milk, do I get tiger stripes?

                      Theyre pretty challenging to milk though.... ;D

                        You just need more practice.

                        And Chris I was about to say the same thing.
                        Ill let you try to milk a tiger.

                            I think its the different protein composition.
