Step into the world of gastronomic pioneers crafting the future of food, plate by plate. In this episode of Chef AF, I recently sat down with the celebrated Chef Angelo Sosa. Known for his bold flavors and innovative approach to Asian cuisine, Sosa takes us on a gastronomic voyage that marries his rich heritage with the vibrant tapestry of Asian street food culture.

Chef Sosa, with over 25 years of experience, has journeyed from the prestigious kitchens of Europe to the bustling street food stalls of Thailand. Raised in a Dominican/Italian family in Durham, CT, Angelo's culinary roots are as diverse as his cooking. Under the tutelage of culinary giants like Jean-Georges Vongerichten and alongside his Tía Carmen's traditional teachings, Sosa has cultivated a unique culinary philosophy that emphasizes the trinity of flavors: sweet, sour, and salty.
Our conversation delves into Sosa's latest ventures, Tía Carmen and Kembara, located at the luxurious JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa. Tía Carmen pays homage to his aunt, blending the local flavors of the Southwest with a modern twist, while Kembara takes inspiration from Sosa's travels across Asia, promising an authentic street food experience.

Throughout the interview, Sosa's passion for mentorship shines through. He speaks to the importance of humility and hunger in the kitchen, values instilled in him by mentors like Jean-Georges and Alain Ducasse. It's this foundation that has propelled Sosa to not only achieve personal success but to also invest in the next generation of chefs.

Sosa also touches on the significance of sustainability and local sourcing in his restaurants, highlighting his commitment to the planet and the communities he serves. His dedication to crafting dishes that are both innovative and respectful of tradition is evident as he discusses the creative process behind his menus, which are designed to evoke emotion and tell a story.

As our conversation winds down, Sosa offers a glimpse into the future, teasing upcoming projects and reflecting on the ever-evolving culinary landscape. His vision for his restaurants is clear: to provide a portal to new worlds through food, inviting guests to embark on unforgettable journeys.

For those seeking a culinary experience that transcends the ordinary, Chef Angelo Sosa's creations promise just that. Whether it's the nuanced flavors of Kembara or the southwestern flair of Tía Carmen, Sosa's cooking is a testament to the power of food to connect, transform, and inspire.

Tune in to Chef AF for the full interview with Chef Angelo Sosa, where food meets art, culture, and passion. It's a conversation that will leave you hungry for more, both literally and metaphorically.

As a food journalist and avid foodie, my chat with Chef Angelo Sosa was more than just an interview; it was a journey through the senses, a lesson in culinary excellence, and a reminder of the beauty that lies in the stories behind the dishes we love.
