Are you looking to create memories this Father’s Day? Tranece Y. Joyner wants to help.
Joyner, known to many as Chef TreJ, is an entertainment chef. In addition to offering cooking lessons, as owner of Chef TreJ Food Grand Central, Chef TreJ works to help small businesses grow and assists larger companies with getting up to health codes and offering better service.
“The services I render are: cooking lessons for couples, parents with their children, children and teens, fellas, and ladies; dinner parties and brunches for small groups in your home; and romantic settings for married couples,” she said.
Joyner guarantees you will have a great time.
“I create a great balance when I come into your home. If I am teaching you, you will definitely learn and feel accomplished, but it will be so much fun. If I am doing a dinner party or brunch you will think I am part of your family and you have known me for years. I don’t meet strangers and love to make people feel comfortable and intrigued at the same time. Your house will smell so good, and we will create a memory that will forever be in your mind!”
Although Joyner has been cooking since the age of five and she has been in the food industry since she was 15. Her 21 years in the industry have seen her evolve personally and professionally.
“I actually stopped catering large events. If it’s a small crowd I will do it, but large ones I pass to the people I know that are remarkable in doing events like that,” she said. “In December of 2015 I was in an accident that changed my life. I had been struggling with keeping the catering business open because my heart was venturing to other places. Being hit by a concrete truck and knowing you should have been gone will give you an awakening. I realized that I have other gifts and one of them is to help people create memories. I have had a lot of loss in my lifetime, but when I cook something I usually have someone in my life tied to that dish. I want to spread love to those around us and worldwide, and I realized catering does not do that—being one on one does. You make a bigger impact when you are personable with people.”
