Today show to Billy Dec: Say 'cheese'

| No Comments

While breast milk cheese is still on everyone's mind, the inimitable Billy Dec will have you know he tasted the stuff. This morning. On the set of Today with Hoda and Kathie Lee. Not exactly knowingly.

Dec and Rodelio Aglibot, chef at Dec's Sunda restaurant in River North, were at the NBC studios in New York taping a cooking segment. Afterwards, "me and Rod were wandering into the Kathie Lee and Hoda set," Dec wrote on his blog earlier today, "and I heard 'Is someone hungry' so knowing me I raise my hand."

Hoda hands Dec what appears to be a schmear of white cheese on crostini. Only after he's taken a bit is he told it's mother's milk cheese.

Ever the sportsman, Dec later posted this on Twitter: "The cheese was sweaty, & ChefRod burped me after."

Aglibot, for his part, cooked corn fritters and creamy rock shrimp for the show.

Here's the clip.
