Tre brings the “ChefTainment”

Tre Wilcox, Vicki Briley-White and Jim White

This week on the podcast, we bring you a chef who is driven with a new focus.  From Abacus to “Top Chef” and other TV appearances, Tre Wilcox has become a fan favorite.  And, he’s busy.  In addition to partnering on a new restaurant, Julia Pearl Southern Cuisine, Tre has opened his dream operation, Tre Cooking Concepts.  Fancy cooking with the chef for a night?  Maybe hosting a glam dinner party with Tre providing the “ChefTainment”?  Or, have you ever longed to run your own restaurant? (For a night; believe me, you’ll get over it).  Those are just some of the ways Tre envisions his new establishment serving your wining and dining needs.

Hear all of our episodes of “Wining and Dining with Jim White” by going to the iTunes Store.  Give us a rating if you please.  We’d also love to hear from you if there’s  a favorite chef or winemaker you’d like for us to feature on the show.

And, if anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner, tell them reservations!

News You Can Use About Wining and Dining

Tre Wilcox has opened his new Marquee Grill and Bar in Highland Park Village next to the Village Theatre. It’s touted as “a neighborhood walk-in restaurant…[taking] very limited reservations for special occasions and larger parties.” See what the great young chef (formerly Abacus), turned celebrity thanks to Bravo’s “Top Chef” series, is up to.

NOSH chefs Avner Samuel and Jon Stevens are offering a cooking class at the Oak Lawn restaurant on Saturday May 21st, from 10 a.m. till 1 p.m. $95 includes four-course lunch with wine pairings. Call 214-528-9400 for reservations. Limited seating.

If you love kids and love drinking Champagne, look no further than the PJ for PJ’s benefit May 18th at Hotel ZaZa in Dallas. Perrier Jouet Champagne joins with ZaZa to get people to bring a new pair of children’s pajamas and a $30 donation to help the outstanding work of the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center. That small donation and the PJ’s get you some outstanding Champagne and appetizers. PJ for PJ’s is a nice touch. Thanks to Wendy Moss at Republic National Distributers for her tireless efforts on behalf of this fundraiser.
