Coupled with his elegant approach, Angelo’s cuisine is utterly unique. One can feel his passion for Asian flavors, his talent for combining them harmoniously, and his uninhibited creativity in each and every of his recipes. They all tell a story—the story of a chef who lives for cooking. (Alain Ducasse From The Foreword)
Angelo Sosa is a perfectionist, and one of the most committed and principled chefs I know. Throw in his penchant for global cooking and his expansive culinary skill set and you have the perfect recipe for a great cookbook author. His first effort is thrilling, reliable and insanely sexy...but most importantly the food is as delicious and sensible. (Andrew Zimmern)
Angelo Sosa has a true talent for presenting both old and new flavors together like few other young chefs can - at once elegant, approachable and thoroughly unique (this in itself is a rare culinary trinity!). His book will serve as both inspiration and guide to many meals in my home for years to come. (Gail Simmons)
Sosa believes in the science of flavor and the art of cooking. He categorizes recipes by the primary tastes the tongue physically senses: sweet, salty, sour, bitter, and umami. To those fundamentals he adds spicy, earthy, and nutty. Out of this palette of flavors he creates unique recipes that harmonize these attributes. Scallop and banana tartare offers a basic sweetness, which is underscored by dressing it with jalapeño vinaigrette for contrasting acidity and spiciness. Salty flavor dominates in Sosa’s remarkable riff on Chinese takeout standard General Tso’s chicken reimagined with sweetbreads. Even more startling, sloppy Ho Chi Minh revolutionizes an American classic with Vietnamese flavors. (Booklist)
Chef Angelo Sosa combines flavors in surprisingly delicious ways. His unique cooking style comes from many influences: his Dominican-Italian heritage, French culinary training, time spent working with chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, competing on Top Chef, and traveling in Asia. He brings these experiences to bear in this inviting cookbook, sharing 100 exciting, globally inspired recipes. Some are jazzed-up versions of familiar fare: Mustard Seed Potato Salad, for example, or Sloppy Ho Chi Minh, an exotic riff on the classic Sloppy Joe. Others are wildly original, like Curried Pots de Crème and Grilled Watermelon with Chinese A-1 Sauce. The flavors are innovative and complex, but the cooking, generally, is not. Really, it all boils down to this: Buy this book and cook from it. If you do, you'll find yourself cooking and eating better than you ever imagined. (Fine Cooking)

If you read this blog often, you know I write almost daily about a new cookbook. I leave it to you whether you will buy a particular book, of course, but sometimes I do suggest action.

Radio/television personality Angie Martinez and chef/television personality Angelo Sosa might seem like an unlikely pair to team-up for a cookbook. But paging through their new book, Healthy Latin Eating, it’s clear that this is no forced vanity project. Martinez, who is known as the “Voice of New York” from her time on Hot 97, is passionate about healthy cooking and these days can be found more often at the farmers market than the radio booth. Sosa, who appeared on Top Chef, has been known to tap into his unique Dominican-Italian heritage when preparing his fresh, flavorful dishes. Plus, they seem to be friends! (Food Republic, 1/5/2015)
