Get to Know Dale Talde
Dale’s passion for cooking began at a young age in his native Chicago where he learned to prepare meals alongside his mother in the kitchen. The proud son of Filipino immigrants, he grew up immersed in his family’s cultural heritage, while also enjoying the life of a typical American kid.
Dale applied this distinct Asian American experience to the menu of his eponymous restaurant, TALDE, which opened in Brooklyn’s Park Slope neighborhood in 2012. He went on to open a TALDE in Miami, Florida and in Jersey City, New Jersey.
Dale is the host of Tastemade’s “All Up In My Grill.” He was also a three-time cheftestant and judge on Bravo’s Emmy Award-winning culinary show, “Top Chef.”
