Spotlight on a Crabbroker Tour Participant

Someone’s terribly excited about leaving for Dutch Harbor, Alaska, today!  His name is Jasper Mirabile, Jr., he’s a chef, and he’s headed North for a great tour today!  This is part of his blog entry, you’ll have to visit his site to read the rest…

Tomorrow I leave for Dutch Harbor, Alaska and the Crab Tour! We will travel out to Dutch Harbor for the ’07 Bristol Bay Red King Crab season. Dutch is about 800 miles Southwest of Anchorage in the Aleutian Islands. This is where the Discovery Channel films the Deadliest Catch every year. The boats fishing out of Dutch average 100-140 feet long, and bring in trips from 80,000 – 350,000#’s of live crab. We will observe crab offloaded, butchered, cooked and packaged for shipment.

I will be doing a LIVE! From Jasper’s Kitchen radio remote on Saturday morning. Darren Mark from KSHB 41 will be hosting my show at Regarding Kitchens and I will be calling in LIVE…

    What a great opportunity for him. (I hope he doesn’t ruin the crab by doing fancy smancy stuff to it. Sorry. Couldn’t resist)

    And isn’t that the Rollo? See? Can’t we convince those guys to come back? *sigh* I miss them.

    Wow. Great to hear the show and Capt. Phil. What a wonderful opportunity he had. Recommend listening to it. Thank you Discovery, Jaspar, and Capt. Phil, and Rob from the crab broker. You all made my day. Would love to go on the Tour and have Jaspars experience. Kudos to all involved.
