Tre Cooking Concepts And Life After Marquee

Tre02by Steven Doyle

The food lords of Dallas were taken aback recently when Tre Wilcox resigned his post two years after he opened the kitchen at Marquee in Highland Park Village. Wlicox comes to us with an amazing pedigree named as the James Beard Foundation’s “Rising Star Chef” for two consecutive years, and appearing on Top Chef Season 3 and the All Star Season 8. On any given night Wilcox could be found working the line in his own kitchen at Marquee rather than playing up his celebrity status.

Wilcox claimed he wanted to spend more time with his family and offer cooking classes in his home, and the man has been doing just that.  Continue reading

Making Your Own Charcuterie Class at Milestone

by Steven Doyle

Over the past few years the word ‘charcuterie’ has been bandied about quite a bit, and associated with a few very popular local chefs such as David Uygur owner of Lucia, Brian Luscher owner of Grape, and Kuby’s who has been cranking out fresh sausages for ages. In more recent months we have enjoyed Matt McCallister’s creations. We visited some of the old timers last year and caught a fantastic conversation as a few of the more seasoned chefs discussed their product.      Continue reading
