Le Cendrillon ("Cendrillon" means "Cinderella" in French) is a vegetable ash-covered, soft, surface-ripened goat cheese that was crowned the 'Best Cheese in the World' at the 2009 World Cheese Awards. It was the first cheese from Quebec to ever receive such a prestigious honour.

This triangular, log-shaped cheese has got a smooth ivory body enveloped by a marble-textured rind. The flavour is fairly strong, acidic and slightly sour. When young, the overall taste is mild, but as it ripens, the flavour becomes more pronounced with the rind acquiring a bit of spice.

125g

Le Cendrillon will pair well with a Loire wine (white) or Amber Ale.
