Just as Columbus State has done for thirty years, Taste the Future: Reimagined will feature mouthwatering dishes, inventive chefs, and refreshing beverages. Our delivery, however, will have to be a little different this year.
Please join us on October 13th at 7 p.m. for Taste the Future: Reimagined, and our Grand Prize Drawing.
From the kitchens of Mitchell Hall, we'll feature central Ohio culinary favorites from chefs at Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, Blend Bakery & Cafe, Degrees Restaurant, and Barcelona Restaurant. Enjoy a fancy craft cocktails demonstration courtesy of Service Bar, and a guide to menu-paired wines thanks to Heidelberg Distributing Company.
Throughout our program, we'll weave messages of gratitude, tributes to essential workers, compelling student stories, and a special feature in support of our local hospitality industry, just to remind us that Taste the Future is REALLY all about community-- and supporting central Ohio's community through student success initiatives at Columbus State is how we put the proceeds raised from this event to good use.
Everyone is welcome to attend, online. Just visit our Taste the Future home page at www.TastetheFuture.com that evening for your viewing options.
This year, your Taste Ticket enters you into our Grand Prize Drawing—and one lucky winner will be announced live during the grand finale of our virtual broadcast on October 13th. We'll draw one lucky winner of the Taste Ticket Grand Prize—a spectacular private culinary experience set in the gorgeous Degrees Restaurant at Columbus State.
While there will be only one Grand Prize winner, every “Taster” wins! Each Taste Ticket entitles the purchaser to receive one $50 Gift Certificate good at a participating local business.
PLEASE NOTE: the deadline to be recognized in the credit rolls has passed. You may purchase tickets for entry into the drawing until 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 13th.
