Serbian Donkey Milk Cheese Is The World's Most Expensive
You could never imagine it but still it is true. Serbia produces the world's most expensive and rare cheese, that too from donkey's milk. The cheese, called Pule, was recently honored as the costliest variety of cheese, even more than the pricey Parmigiano-Reggiano and Camembert. It is the World Record Academy that has bestowed this honor upon the cheese.
The cheese is made at the Zasavica donkey reserve in Serbia and it fetches anything between 3,000 to 5,000 Euros per kg ($1,700 to $2,900 per pound). The price is justified if you take into account the costly production process and the rarity of this cheese, say its producers. However, in an effort to help reach this cheese everyone, the owners of the donkey reserve have decided to keep one batch of Pule for reasonable pricing such as $576 a pound. They are hoping that this step would help promote the conservation work being carried out at the reserve.
The reserve consumes 25 liters of donkey milk to produce one kg of Pule cheese. However, before readers with deep pockets start their rush to Serbia, be informed that you cannot get this cheese commercially, in Serbia, or anywhere else in the world.
