Supporting a Family with a Classic Maryland Delicacy

In his interview with Jamie Costello of WMAR, Chef Matassa explains the way in which Eastern Shore Crab Cakes became a means of supporting his granddaughter with his take on a classic Maryland delicacy. After their daughter overdosed twice, the Matassa’s gained sole custody of their granddaughter. In an emotional interview with WMAR, Chef Matassa explains how he hopes to provide his granddaughter with the same opportunities to succeed that he enjoyed as he was growing up, while also supporting his daughter’s recovery from drug use.

Drawing from Experience to Create a Meaningful Recipe

It’s no secret that Eastern Shore Crab Cakes is inspired by Chef Matassa’s experience on the water as a Maryland native. For over 30 years, Chef Matassa has crafted delicious Maryland crab cakes that represent a lifetime of memories on the water with his own grandfather.
