The 99’s Commitment To Using Gloucester Haddock Featured On Channel 7 and The WHDH Website

We are getting some good press coverage on 7News tonight, tomorrow and Saturday. Their What’s Cooking Segment has their reporter (Sarah French) in the Revere Ninety Nine with Charlie and Chef George. She actually goes into the kitchen with Chef George to make the Simple Seasoned Fresh Haddock. We haven’t seen the edited piece yet, but Charlie stressed the fact that it is a Gloucester product and that we have worked closely with our partners in Gloucester to bring a local product to our tables. Chef George reinforced that throughout the preparation of the dish. Should be great!

Looking forward to the segments. Here are the air dates/times for the next three days:

–          Thursday, 4/28 at 10pm on the CW56 Station
