Chef Jasper White Speaks at MA Striped Bass Hearing
March 2, 2012
CapeCodOnline: When celebrity chef Jasper White, owner of the popular Summer Shack restaurants, stepped up to the microphone, state Rep. Ann-Margaret Ferrante, D-Gloucester, could hardly contain herself.
“I love your restaurant,” she gushed, as though White were a rock star.
White, testifying Tuesday before the Joint Committee on Environment, Natural Resources and Agriculture on a suite of 11 bills seeking to end commercial fishing of striped bass, thanked her, then extolled the virtues of another star of the culinary world.
“Striped bass is a superstar fish,” White said.
