Chef Tre Wilcox is excited to announce his new venture: Tre Wilcox Cooking Concepts. Based in the boarder of Plano and Frisco, this unique hub for events, catering, team building competitions and cooking classes will give guests the opportunity to work with Chef Tre in a hands-on environment while creating memorable culinary experiences.
After a 20-year career as a restaurant chef, private chef and TV personality, Chef Tre is taking everything he’s learned and applying it to a new setting where he can interact with and impact individuals, couples, parties and companies with his brand of fun, educational cooking classes. These include:
Hands-On Cooking Classes
These in-house cooking classes will allow guests to participate in making three-course menus. Classes will be offered for adults and children. Working in four small groups, each team will be responsible for preparation and plating of three courses. Classes will be 16 people and all ingredients, tools and recipes will be provided. After the class, attendees are invited to bring a guest and some wine to enjoy their three-course dinner with full service staff.
Couples Cooking Classes
This intimate class of no more than 16 people will enjoy a quick interactive cooking demonstration and tasting with Chef Tre. Upbeat global music will set the mood and guests will pair off and work together to prepare three recipes from the evening’s small plates menu. As each recipe is completed, guests may savor the fruits of their labor hot from the oven. Guests are encouraged to bring their own beverage of choice to enjoy during the three-hour evenings that will include cooking instructions by professional chefs, a meal of four hearty appetizers and copies of each recipe.
TRE Demonstration Classes
The acronym ‘TRE” means Techniques, Recipes, Execution. These classes will offer an intimate and interactive look at cooking with an entertaining and informative lesson by Chef Tre or a professional guest chef-instructor, who might include Top Chef Contestants, local celebrity chefs or nationally known chefs. Tastings of each course from the four-course menu will be prepared for each guest as they take notes, watch the chef work and ask questions throughout the process. The theme of each class will always vary and guests may bring their own wines, beer or cocktails.
Corporate Team Building
Groups of up to 40 people will work together to prepare their own gourmet meal. The format will be one of three themes: Family Dinner, Iron Chef Battle or Market Basket Challenge. Chef Tre and his team will guide each group as they prepare a meal together. The two menu styles offered are a chef-crafted buffet of choice or a three-course plated dinner.
Corporate Parties and Private Events
With 20 years of experience in the food industry, Chef Tre Wilcox has set a standard for food service excellence in the Dallas area and beyond. His team of catering and events management professionals will plan all aspects of each event, whether planning for 20 or 100, and offer menus designed for the guests and their specific tastes, dietary restrictions and budgetary requirements.
Private dining events can be customized for groups ranging from 12 to 150 people. The space will be available for bookings Monday through Thursday from 6pm-10pm and Friday and Saturday from 6pm-11pm. The building will be equipped with wireless internet, a plasma screen and access to other AV needs to ensure client’s needs are met, whether hosting an engagement party or business function.
The space itself is open and versatile with a neutral dining room palate featuring wood, raw steel, sleek marble and stone. It can accommodate live cooking demos at the Chef’s Table, custom banquets catered from the professional in-house kitchen and interactive cooking classes.
“This is the culmination of two decades of hard work and a love for both cooking and teaching,” said Tre Wilcox. “I’m excited to bring Tre Wilcox Cooking Concepts to fruition and to share this vision with the public in a fun and instructional hands-on setting.”
Tre Wilcox Cooking Concepts is slated to open in early 2016. Gift cards are available now just in time for the holiday season and can also be used upon opening of the venue. For more information, please visit Tre’s new website at his website or call 1-844-776-8200
