Summer Shore Food With The Man Behind The Summer Shack
Perhaps nobody knows New England shore food like Jasper White. In May 2000, White surprised people who thought he was inextricably linked to fine dining when he opened Jasper White's Summer Shack in Cambridge, Massachusetts. A loud, energetic clam shack with lobster tanks and steam kettles as a focal point in a central big, open space. Lobsters, clams, oysters and many other varieties of seafood dominate the menu that features everything from corn dogs and fried clams to traditional favorites like cod cakes and baked beans. The success of the Cambridge restaurant has spawned two more Summer Shacks and the Summer Shack Cookbook, which Jasper joins us to discuss.
