Produced in Zasavica – one of Serbia’s most famous natural reserves, along the Zasavica river – the cheese, known as pule, is made from donkeys’ milk and costs a whopping £800 per kilogram.

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

The legendary Egyptian queen was famously said to have bathed daily in asses’ milk.
