A function out of the matrix?

Hi everyone. I have a table of relations between various foods (each with each). Maybe that could be defined as a matrix. Here is a small 4 x 4 example:

		Rice		Soup		Ice cream		Salad
Rice		0		1		2			1
Soup		1		0		2			2
Ice cream	2		2		0			2
Salad	1		2		2			0
(The higher the value/distance, the less the compatibility between foods.)

My question is, is there some way to get out of such a relation table/matrix a unique function/formula?

Maybe such a function could define some pattern how these relations are set?

I am new here and I hope this post was submitted in the right sub-forum. In case not, please refer me to the right place. Thank you.
