ATC Love to Chef Angelo Sosa

On Top Chef All-Stars, one week you're riding high, and the next you...get eliminated. So it went for Angelo Sosa, whose pulled pork dish was a huge hit for him last week; this week, his baked potato soup provoked Padma to ask him to pack his knives and go. As he pointed out, he had competed in about 40 challenges in a row, if you consider that there was precious little time between the end of his original season 7 and the start of season 8. The middle-of-the-night challenge didn't help matters, either.

Chef Sosa, it really seemed like you'd be in the top 3 or 4 chefs this season, so this loss is a surprise for many of us. ATC is sorry to see you go, and we wish you great success with your new restaurant, Social Eatz, opening in March!

Angelo... I think you are a genious about the precision and passion you have about your craft. You are a true artist.. and your food reflects a brillant culinary mind. It was an honor to watch your work and I am a huge fan. Even if others might have misunderstood you, your humility shines through more deeply, and your character is like a great empty canvas. I have grown to love food and the art of food and the value it has to our lives... better, because of Top Chef, and I wish you the very best.
