Tre Restaurant & Lounge in Sioux Falls, S.D., has cut some of its staff, which of course is what companies do these days. In this case it means that a talented young chef by the name of Tyler Honke (pronounced Honkey) is on the job market.
I met Tyler at last year’s Taste of Elegance, a competition sponsored by the American Pork Board, and he cooked a whole freakin’ pig's head, dusting the temples with fennel,
rubbing the cheeks with garlic, coating the neck (a cut very much appreciated in Latin America and Southeast Asia) with Piave cheese. He was Tre’s executive chef, so one would assume he knows how to run a kitchen.
Let me know if you’d like to reach him.
Update, July 1: In case you were wondering, Tyler recently landed a job at the Minnehaha Country Club.
