New Orleans chefs and husband-and-wife team Cody and Samantha Carroll star in Cajun Aces, which premiered Dec. 2 on Food Network (www.foodnetwork.com/shows/cajun-aces).
The couple runs the Cajun-inspired restaurant Sac-A-Lait (1051 Annunciation St., 504-324-3658; www.sac-a-laitrestaurant.com) in the Warehouse District and Hot Tails in New Roads (www.hottailsrestaurant.com).
Cajun Aces follows the chefs and explores Cajun cuisine and culture. The couple visit their family farm in Batchelor, Louisiana, where they source everything from okra to crawfish, and then demonstrate how the ingredients are used at both restaurants. Episodes focus on crawfish, pecans, redfish, okra, mirlitons, pigs, figs and more.
The couple opened Hot Tails in April 2010, a couple of months after they graduated from culinary school. They opened Sac-a-Lait in 2015.
