Columbus State launches ‘The Mix’ recreational cooking classes
Campus News | Wednesday, August 21, 2019
Columbus State Community College has created The Mix, a new program of recreational cooking classes that anyone can take without being enrolled in a degree program. It’s the perfect way for members of the general public to hone their cooking skills and be a part of Columbus State’s new School of Hospitality Management and Culinary Arts, the just-completed Cameron Mitchell Hall at 250 Cleveland Avenue in downtown Columbus.
Hosted in Mitchell Hall, an 80,000-square-foot, three-story hospitality and culinary education center, The Mix classes are now open for registration at mix.cscc.edu. The first classes start in early September. Registration prices typically range between $55-$65, although some classes are free.
“At Columbus State, we believe that everyone should be empowered to cook and enjoy good food,” said Joshua Wickham, director for the School of Hospitality Management and Culinary Arts at Columbus State. “The Mix is about making it fun for home cooks to improve upon their skills in a supportive, educational environment.”
All Columbus State cooking instructors are certified by the American Culinary Federation and have years of professional cooking and teaching experience. Most serve as faculty in Columbus State’s culinary arts programs in addition to teaching classes for the general public, which means participants have an opportunity to learn from accomplished chefs with a passion for sharing their knowledge with cooks of all skill levels.
Upcoming classes include:
Great 30-Minute Dinners
Fall Hors d’oeuvres
Tailgate Food that Scores Every Time
Mediterranean Sunday Supper
Autumn Cocktail Party
Holiday Log Cakes
Among many more.
“We’re excited to welcome the public to Mitchell Hall, which we think will become the new kitchen of our campus household,” Wickham said. “Good food creates great fellowship.”
