Columbus has many wonderful food events, but the annual Taste the Future at Columbus State Community College is one that I have particular affection for. 2011 marks the 23rd anniversary of this event, and with over 50 of central Ohio’s premier chefs showing off their talents this year it looks to be another great one! As well as being a wonderful event to graze, it’s also without fail a feast for the eyes. The atmosphere is always relaxed and I love how the spacious CSCC campus setting means that it never feels particularly overcrowded.
This year participating restaurants include: Barrio, Barcelona, The Clarmont, Cherbourg Bakery, Creole Kitchen, Columbus Fish Market, Due Amici, G Michael’s, Jeni’s Ice creams, Lindey’s Mitchell’s Steakhouse, The Refectory and Trattoria Roma.
The event funds Columbus State’s scholarship programs and special projects, and helps hundreds of students to build their future with a college education.
This year’s Taste the Future will be held on Tuesday, September 13 at 5:30 – 9:00pm at the Downtown Campus, Columbus State Community College. Tickets are $100 and can be purchased online. and here are more photos of last year’s event to whet your appetite.
We have one pair of tickets to give away. Those of you who have entered our giveaways in the past know that we usually ask a question for you to answer in the comments. This one will likely require a small amount of research. So, here goes:
Question: If you’ve never had Somali cuisine, what one Somali dish would you be most interested in trying? (we’d recommend looking here) If you’ve had Somali before, what was your favorite dish? (you’ll probably be able to find it here).
To enter, please leave your answer along with your email address. Entries will close Thursday September 8th at noon and the winner will be selected at random and notified that afternoon.
