Donkey cheese may be the one thing in life Novak Djokovic likes as much as tennis. That’s right — donkey cheese. Djokovic is opening a chain of restaurants, and he apparently wanted to make sure they are supplied with enough gourmet cheese straight from his home country of Serbia. According to The Telegraph, Djokovic bought up the entire annual production of donkey cheese from Serbia, which is the world’s most expensive cheese. How expensive is it? Earlier this year, a burger selling in Las Vegas that was topped with the cheese was selling for more than $4,000. It was also featured in a caviar-coated at a fancy hotel in New York that sold for the modest price of around $1,000. The cheese is produced at a farm in Serbia called Zasavica. It is made only from donkeys, and Zasavica manager Slobodan Simic says it takes 25 liters of donkey milk to make a single kilogram of donkey cheese, also known as pule. Simic said the fact that Djokovic purchased the entire supply made it easy for all parties involved. “It will save a lot of effort having to deal with various restaurants, with only one customer buying the lot we don’t have to worry too much about salesmen,” he explained. “It is a great vote of confidence as well in what we do here.” Zasavica is the only farm in the world where Donkey cheese is produced. That explains why it costs $4,000 for a burger that is topped with pule. Wait a minute, no it doesn’t…
