It’s a tale that might ensure you never look the same way at a humble loaf again.
When a feminist blogger found herself suffering from a vaginal yeast infection, she made the unusual decision to use the unwanted bodily fluid as an ingredient for making bread.
Zoe Stavri, who writes under the title Another Angry Woman, has documented the details of her unusual baking experiment on social media and, unsurprisingly, it’s caused something of a furore.
Yes, yes, I know, there’s all sorts of different yeasts and we tend to perfect one for one task and another for another.
But I wonder what beer made that way would be like?
And if that were done, the replication of the yeast would mean truly feminist Marmite could be made too……
That’s me off my toast this morning.
Yogurt anyone? http://motherboard.vice.com/read/how-to-make-breakfast-with-your-vagina
A hundred years ago, these people would be found a safe mental asylum somewhere in the country to live out their days. Hurrah for the Internet!
You can’t make beer or bread from a yeast infection. It’s the wrong genus.
Would Zoe Stavri appreciate a semen cappuccino with her vagina bread toast?
Gives a whole new meaning to Mother’s Pride.
Ah, hot muffed wine in winter
“Look! On the bird table. Thrush!”
Well I assume it’s only the bread in her household that rises in the morning
Beware her crab cakes.
Tangy, not unlike 9 volt batteries.
I can’t imagine the beer would be very good. A definite lack of head
She got the recipe from Fanny Cradock.

It can if it wants to. It can’t help the way it was subdivided. It is probably transbinomial. You are just a generaphobe.
“truly feminist Marmite”
Vagimite for the Oz market.
Next time I get athlete’s foot, I’ll get out the homebrew kit.
Dear God. I’m a pretty enthusiastic foodie and, as such, am willing to try just about anything. But this? This makes gag even to read the article.
The human breast milk ice cream from that Covent Garden shop a few years ago was bad enough. This just makes me want to spew.
At least she didn’t use her own feminist shite. That’s already earmarked for spraying across the media.
Has no one done the Zoolander two “hotdog/bun” thing yet? There’s a joke there, somewhere.
Infect me with your hotdog so I can bake the bun…..
Can’t stop sniggering!
Thanks, lads and Julia
Many witty comments on something properly repulsive.
We should probably watch it though, what with being humour privileged and what not.

I’m looking into the entrepreneurial possibilities of selling an equivalent pancake mix product, called “Fanny Batter”.
So that’s how they got 400 varieties of cheese
Should those with more mature tastes go for granary or naan?
I’m sooooo infantile!
Great stuff, guys!
Loaves and fishes. Will she feed the multitude.
Another meagre achievement from this week’s news pales into insignificance alongside vaginal baking.

I dimly remember someone was trying to sell yogurt made with bacteria extracted from the sh!t of Soviet cosmonauts. There was some weird logic about them surviving in space or whatever.
Can’t say I was tempted.

What would the cows eat?
Bloke in Costa Rica – “What would the cows eat?”
Made with, not of. Grain presumably. Maize most likely.
