Genomic Gastronomy at Church!

June 21, 2011

This Sunday the Center spent the day at Church! a semi-regular gathering of artists, crafters and entrepreneurs, in Portland, Ore., Or as the organizers write:

A ritualistic Sunday gathering to open dialogue in Portland’s creative community and expand on the narrow avenues that already exist for showing work. A gathering where nothing is sold, CHURCH! is a free space for sharing ideas and intermingling between artists working in a multitude of different medias.

Thanks to our good friends The Gorilla Meats Co. for helping organize the event and 220 salon for hosting everyone.


As part of the event we had a Qualifying round for this weeks Cheese Wrestling event. The competition was a local bracket and the three cheeses that we pitted against each other were from these Pacific Northwest creameries:

Willamette Valley Cheese Co.‘s Brindisi (aged Fontina)
Rogue Creamery‘s Oregon Blue Cheese
Mt. Townsend Creamery‘s Cirrus – PNW Camembert

If you would like to find out who won, and enjoy ten more rounds of tenacious cheeses battling for the attention of your taste buds come to Gallery Homeland this Friday at 6 PM in Portland, OR.


And some images from The Gorilla Meats Co. who served their Cheeky Thai sausage.
