Milk is a translucent white liquid produced by the mammary glands of mammals.
In cooking, unless otherwise specified milk as an ingredient is cow's milk.
Milk provides the primary source of nutrition for young mammals before they are able to digest other types of food.
The exact components of raw milk vary by species, but it contains significant amounts of saturated fat, protein and calcium as well as vitamin C.
Cow's milk has a pH ranging from 6.4 to 6.8, making it slightly acidic.
Grades of milk
In the United States, there are two grades of milk, with Grade A primarily used for direct sales and consumption in stores, and Grade B used for indirect consumption, such as in cheesemaking or other processing.

Turned out great, the fresh herbs and clean fresh ingredients were delicious. I did add a small clove of garlic. I prepared the mixture the day before and let marinate overnight then tossed with fresh made pasta and it turned out absolutely brilliant.
