If you're addicted to the Food Network's cooking competitions, you're in luck this month -- here's a chance to see one for yourself, and even judge it. Luce at the InterContinental San Francisco is partnering with Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts for Culinary Clash, a cooking contest for the next three Sundays this March.

For the third year running, three student chefs will compete for scholarships and a chance to cook with Michelin-star Chef Daniel Corey of Luce, with their menu featured at the restaurant. The winner will also compete at the nationwide Ultimate Culinary Clash this May. Judges include a mix of hotel executives, local personalities, food writers, and restaurant guests.

"What I am looking forward to most for this Culinary Clash is the 'Ultimate Clash' where the winning student chefs will compete against each other," says chef Corey. "Guests can expect creative, delicious three course meals prepared by the student chefs."

The first night of the competition starts this Sunday at 5:30 p.m., featuring a meal prepared by competitor Chef Ruhi Johar and Sous Chef Sarah Razo. The three-course meal will consist of seared scallops, an entree of roasted lamb loin, and saffron panna cotta with almond ice cream for dessert.

Tickets are $40 per person. Guests can make reservations through OpenTable.

Luce Restaurant, 888 Howard St, 616-6566
