Gorton’s “Smarty Cruchman” promoting a New line of never fried fish sticks that have 50% less fat then their orginal fish sticks… This tour started at their headquarters here in Gloucester Ma. this morning and moved to Gloucester Crossing Market Basket parking lot for their 2nd tour stop. The truck tour will be traveling across the country all the to Seattle, Washington promoting this new fish stick product!
I had the pleasure of sampling Gorton’s newest fish stick product, “Smart & Crunchy,” and I’m happy to announce that I give it a “THUMBS UP” for crunch and flavor !

Look for “Smarty Crunchman” at the North Shore Mall this coming weekend near JCPenney where they’ll have a promotion booth and sweepstake opportunity for a trip worth $10,000. All details about their cross country tour and the sweepstake can be found on Gorton’s websites Smartandcrunchy.com
The Fish on Fridays series is a collaboration between Gloucester photographers Kathy Chapman and Marty Luster. Look for various aspects of Gloucester’s centuries-old fishing industry highlighted here on Fridays.
This week we visit with Al Bezanson who recalls his days working at Gorton’s Seafoods in Gloucester. As an engineer he worked on ways to improve their products, specifically the fish cakes. Al moors his schooner Green Dragon in Smith Cove and is enjoying his summer stay at Rocky Neck’s Accommodations, where we shot this video.
(Sorry about the poor sound quality in parts of this video. Still scaling the learning curve.)

In case anyone misses the farmers market on Thursdays at Stage Fort
Park, Marshall’s Farm Stand has a farmers market at Gorton’s on Rogers
Street every Monday and Friday from 3:30 to 6:30 pm. I tried their
native corn and it was sweet and tender! It’s the best i have had this
Note from Joey C:
Check out The Marshall’s Farm Stand Website
they also have a CSA which you can find out about here
I’m a faithful follower of GMG and I appreciate all that you do for Gloucester and all of Cape Ann. We do live in the most beautiful place in the world.
My sister in California sent the attached photo she took at a grocery store in Buena Park, CA. I thought you’d get a kick out of it. She titled it “Taste of Home”.

The November 13, 2012 CITY COUNCIL vote was UNANIMOUS to endorse the establishment of the proposed Downtown Gloucester Cultural District.
The DGCD coordinating group thanks the Councilors, our City Clerk, and the more than 30 partners and stakeholders who sent in letters of support and spoke at the hearing. Have a peek at a few: Cape Ann Museum , the Gloucester Public Schools , and Gorton’s.
Next steps: Send in the application and support materials and wait for word, guidance, and a visit from the Massachusetts Cultural Council!
These are not reproduced , they are original pins from Gortons of Gloucester back in the 1930s. Arley Pett sells them for $20 plus $1 shipping. The patina from pin to pin will vary due to age.
email Arley if you are interested in buying one firstname.lastname@example.org

Good Afternoon all!
I am taping another episode of Inspired Cooking tomorrow so will have new recipes to share with you soon. However, in the meantime, would you please go and vote for my “Taste of Mexico Tortilla Crusted Tilapia Salad?” I need all of the votes I can get!
Here is a link to the recipe so you can vote:
and here is a link to the terrific article from last week’s Cape Ann Beacon. Thank you so much Jane Dooley for doing such a great job with the article and to Dave Sokol for the wonderful photographs. It was a blast doing the article and the photos with them and they left happy with the tilapia salad for lunch and a container full of brownies!
Thank you Cape Ann and everyone all over the country for your continued support!
