I've often wondered why there aren't more shows on the Food Network or Cooking Channel that are based in Louisiana. I mean, if nothing else, we are famous for our food, here in the Bayou State!

Well, on December 2, we will get our wish, with the debut of 'Cajun Aces' on the Food Network. Husband and wife team Cody and Samantha Carroll, who live in Batchelor, La, and own Sac-A-Lait restaurant in New Orleans, and Hot Tails Crawfish House in New Roads, will use their culinary magic to whip up fresh dishes using Louisiana ingredients. They will also bring cajun culture and Louisiana charm to the rest of the world through their extensive cooking experiences.

In 2014 the Carroll's were winners of Country Roads Magazine's 'Small Town Chef's' Award, and you can see them in the video below. We are looking forward to some great Louisiana recipes and dishes on this new show. Tune in December 2!
