New Jersey’s nickname is “The Garden State,” so an Asbury Park adventure wouldn’t be complete without serving up some of the state’s fresh vegetables and seafood. Chef Chris Styler is a New Jersey native who grew up spending summers along the Jersey Shore. He also happens to be the former chef to Bruce Springsteen and his family. He shares some of his secrets on “Today.” Sample some of his cuisine below.
