Culinary Clash (VIDEO)
Culinary Cook Off Heats Up
The heat is on at one of San Francisco’s hottest spots. Luce Wine Restaurant teamed up with the California Culinary Academy (CCA), taking students out of class and into the kitchen in one of the school’s largest cooking competitions and scholarship efforts to date! Luce’s Culinary Clash invited students to submit a three-course menu with corresponding recipes for the opportunity to cook with Luce’s Chef de Cuisine Daniel Corey, a CCA alum. Five student finalists from the CCA, get to showcase their menus at the Michelin-starred restaurant.
Wine Oh TV’s Monique Soltani was apart of the panel of guest judges rating finalist Stephanie Davidovich’s March 4, 2012 menu. In this video, Wine Oh TV’s Monique Soltani gives us a sample of Stephanie’s culinary creation.
Guest judges on March 11, 2012 include: Liam Mayclem, host of CBS “Eye on the Bay,” Jay Barmann, editor of Grub Street San Francisco, Beth Spotswood of the San Francisco Chronicle, James Stolich, dining editor of the Nob Hill Gazette, Peter Koehler, general manager of the InterContinental San Francisco, and Executive Chef Michael Weller of the CCA.
Reservations can be made by calling 415.616.6560 or online www.lucewinerestaurant.com.
At the end of five weeks, three top-rated students will receive cash prizes, and the winner of Luce’s Culinary Clash will cook with Chef de Cuisine Daniel Corey at the prestigious James Beard House in New York City later this spring. An additional special award for wine pairing expertise will include an overnight stay in Wine Country on behalf of Treasury Wine Estates. After the final dinner has taken place on March 25, 2012, those following the competition may also vote in a “Viewer’s Choice” award, voted on via the InterContinental San Francisco’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/
