Asian American History 101

Thanks for tuning in to our podcast!

Jun 20, 2022

Welcome to Season 2, Episode 32! We’ve admired Chef Dale Talde and his work for years. He’s a proud Filipino American who is the chef/owner of the restaurant  Goosefeather and Food Crush Hospitality with his wife Agnes. He’s also a deep thinker who believes in more representation and mainstream normalization of Asian Pacific Islanders and our cuisine. He’s the author of the cookbook Asian-American: Proudly Inauthentic Recipes From The Philippines To Brooklyn which is an amazing blend of great food, Asian American history, and personal stories. At Goosefeather, he pays homage to Hong Kong style Chinese food and other Asian cuisines with his own multicultural twist that can only come from an Asian American raised in the U.S. Most recently he was nominated for the 2022 James Beard award for best chef in New York. We had a chance to sit down with Dale and talk about his career, his honest opinion about the Eurocentric focus of the culinary world, his struggles in life and with Asian American identity, his hopes for the future, and more.
