Donkey Milk Cheese

Food-lovers with expensive tastes – and deep pockets – can pick up what is thought to be the world’s priciest cheese on a donkey farm in Serbia.

Produced in Zasavica – one of Serbia’s most famous natural reserves – the cheese, known as pule, is made from donkeys’ milk and costs a whopping $675 per pound.

It is said to take 3.5 gallons of fresh donkey milk to make a pound of the cheese, which the reserve claims is the most expensive in the world.

The white, crumbly cheese has been described as similar to Spanish manchego cheese, but with a deeper, richer taste.

Other expensive cheeses include a Swedish moose cheese which costs around $535 per pound, and Caciocavallo Podolico, a cheese produced from the milk of a rare Italian breed of cow that only produces milk during May and June.
