The entire annual production of the world’s most expensive cheese made from donkeys’ milk has been bought by the tennis player Novak Djokovic for his chain of restaurants.

The Wimbledon champion and world number one player who is passionate about his Serbian homeland where the cheese is made said he wanted to make sure he secured enough to supply a new chain of restaurants that he is opening in the country.

The cheese when it was unveiled earlier in the year joined the burger that costs £3,000 from a restaurant in Las Vegas and a £700 caviar-coated omelette at a plush New York hotel as being one of the world’s most expensive foods.

But unlike the posh US producers of the other foods the cheese now snapped up by the tennis ace is made on a donkey farm in Serbia, in Zasavica, that also provides the name of the company.

Slobodan Simic, the manager at Zasavica, said the secret of the cheese’s great taste was the fact that it was produced from milk taken from donkey’s raised on one of Serbia’s most famous wildlife and nature reserves.

The cheese, known as pule, is made only from donkeys and it takes 25 litres of fresh donkey milk to make a single kilogram.

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
