Given the passion with which Dale Talde, the two-time Filipino-American Top Chef contender behind four restaurants in Brooklyn, Jersey City, and Miami, talks about bodegas, you’d never guess he didn’t grow up ordering egg, bacon, and cheese on a roll or going on late-night Gatorade runs.

You Need to Try the Other Apple CiderPeople
For the entire month of September, I rented a tiny artists’ cottage in the town of Cornwallville in the Catskills mountains. While I was there, I built a lot of fires, fried up a lot of bacon and eggs, and discovered the usefulness of a metal spatula when one is fixing a batch of pancakes. My clothes smelled like smoke and bacon grease and I loved it. This is what one does in the country, right?

5 Delicious Excuses to Go to Sag Habor Right NowPeople
I have never been to Sag Harbor in the summer. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, I imagine this tiny village pulls in a tony crowd in white linen and nautical stripes.

But I quite prefer the reality of this little town in the winter.
