Cheese Combinatorics provides a playful way to explore how cheeses are constituted by elements such as milk, rennet, flavour, texture and treatment. A set of dice with icons representing the elements that give form to a cheese are rolled, and cheese matching those factors is served. While these elements and their relations set the structure for the cheese experience, the character of the cheese sampled escapes simplistic reduction to formula.
_The version of Cheese Combinatorics presented in this show includes a look-up table for all 127 Irish farmhouse cheeses catalogued by Bord Bia [the Irish Food Board] and Sheridans Cheesemongers. Three different Irish farmhouse cheeses will be served each day of the exhibition.
