Cheese for Cinderella

The winner of the Cinderella Outfit Challenge (see the five finalists here) is due to be announced today (Friday), and among the spoils set aside for the winner is a gift basket from Cheese Boutique. The contents have been selected to match the characters in the opera Cinderella (La Cenerentola)

For Cinderella: Cendrillon, of course, is the French name for Cinderella, and the cheese "Le Cendrillon" recently was named best in the world.  

For the Prince: Royal Windsor 

For Cinderella's father, Don Magnifico: Aged vintage cheddar

For the ugly stepsisters: Prima Donna (this would also be appropriate for Ariadne auf Naxos)

For Cinderella's rodent companions: Smoked applewood cheddar

Above is a photo of the gift basket they supplied for our 12th annual Fine Wine Auction. The contents of the Cinderella basket are sure to be just as delicious.
