TRE is More Than a Name; It’s His Cooking Philosophy
Chef Tre wanted to expand on his other gift, sharing his passion for food through teaching. “When I’m giving a cooking demonstration or on a TV set, I want viewers to walk away with a ‘can do’ feeling in the kitchen.” He adds, “One of the biggest things I enjoy, and what I do myself, is teach what my name is use the three letters of my name as an acronym for good cooking, Techniques, Recipes and Execution.” From there TRE Cooking Concepts was born.
