Taste of OSU update

The Office of International Affairs has cancelled Taste of OSU 2022 due to new university health and safety guidelines.

We hope to bring back this wonderful event and showcase the many talents of our international student organizations at Taste of OSU on February 17, 2023 at the Ohio Union.


Taste of OSU 2022 Recipe Guidelines

Taste of OSU will be held on Friday, February 18 from 5 – 8:30 p.m. in the Archie Griffin Ballroom at the Ohio Union. Twelve student organizations will be selected to cook food and decorate a cultural booth. The deadline to apply is November 30 at 11:59 p.m.

Each student organization applying to serve food in a cultural booth must submit two recipes. If rice or bread is served, it counts as your second dish. Recipes must be submitted using our Taste of OSU Recipe Card, and all measurements must be converted into U.S. metrics.

Please be as specific as possible in your recipes and look up English translations of ingredients when necessary. Remember, each dish should make approximately 500 servings of two-ounce portions. You can convert a smaller recipe using a recipe calculator.

All recipes are subject to review by our Taste of OSU Chefs, and substitutions will be made, if necessary.

Recipe Rules

Please note that recipes are saved and filed under your student organization name to be used for four years. If your student organization re-applies to be in Taste of OSU next year, the same recipes will be used. This procedure helps reduce food waste and streamline food preparation. Before submitting your recipe, please read the guidelines carefully.

Recipes limitations

Completed Recipe Cards 

Please have all measurements in standard units. Review a correct example of what your recipe card should look like.
