Plot Synopsis

CAJUN ACES is a half-hour reality series that follows chef couple Cody and Sam Carroll, as they run and operate their two restaurants in Louisiana: Hot Tails in New Roads and Sac-a-Lait in New Orleans' historic Warehouse District. The series opens on the first weekend of crawfish season, so Sam and Cody need to work out the kinks on new dishes at Hot Tails to create a Crawfish Po'boy and Baked Crawfish Mac and Cheese. At Sac-a-lait, the Crawfish Pot Pie and Crawfish Echappee need to be masterpieces, because an opportunity like this only comes once a year. Then, in the second episode, it's homecoming weekend, a big deal in New Roads, and Hot Tails expects to be swamped! Pigs are aplenty and figs are in season, so Sam and Cody aim to please the crowd with new dishes that make the most of these local ingredients. Wild Boar Jambalaya, Cracklin with Fig Pepper Jelly, Sweet Potato Pork Nachos, Pork Boudin Eggs Benedict and Fig-Stuffed French Toast will keep the masses happy they came, whether it's for dinner or Sunday brunch. In a later episode, it's autumn in southern Louisiana and Sam and Cody are reinventing old comfort food classics featuring turkey and pecans. A Pecan Chocolate Cake and Turkey Neck Consomme made with turkey bones and sweet peas should draw crowds to their restaurant, Sac-a-Lait. At their other restaurant, Hot Tails, the locals usually don't eat out on Sunday night, but Sam and Cody hope to lure them in with Turkey Fricassee with Pecan Rice and Crab Boil Buffalo Turkey Wings with Cranberry Pepper Jelly.
Season 2 of CAJUN ACES premiered on Saturday, August 25, 2018 at Noon ET/PT on Food Network. In the season opener, "Party at the Pond," Friday night fish fries are a thing in southern Louisiana and Sam and Cody Carroll are frying up a special menu for the occasion right next to the pond on their family farm. They start with Thin Cut Catfish with Spillway Sauce, a locally grown Farmer's Caviar bean salad with a twist and a fruity rum mix called Fish Camp Punch to wash it down. The star of the show, however, is Sam's Chicken Thigh and Smoked Sausage Gumbo with Creole Potato Salad served true Cajun-style -- in the same bowl!
