Taste the Future: Reimagined

Innovation out of necessity inspires a reimagined Taste the Future experience in 2020.

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.

  • Cook along with our line-up of talented local chefs (or just watch)
  • Sip along with a sommelier-guided wine tasting
  • Learn how to mix the perfect cocktail
  • Sign up to receive an exclusive “Support Local Hospitality Kit” chockfull of ingredients, recipes, and samples from our partners

Everyone is welcome to attend, online. Just visit our Taste the Future home page at www.TastetheFuture.com that evening for your viewing options.
