Sac-a-Lait & Hot Tails


Chefs Cody and Samantha Carroll graduated from culinary school in January 2010, and just three months later, transformed a former drive-thru convenience store in New Roads into Hot Tails; a rustic, South Louisiana style restaurant. In 2015, the couple opened their second restaurant Sac-a-Lait. Set in an old cotton mill in the middle of New Orleans’ Warehouse District, Sac-a-Lait showcases refined southern Louisiana dishes with modern takes on Acadian and Cajun cuisine. Since opening the restaurant, they’ve traveled around the world to showcase Louisiana cooking traditions and ingredients, most notably winning the title of “King and Queen of Louisiana Seafood” in 2013.

Andy Little



After moving to Nashville in 2013, Andy Little has made a name for himself in one of the South’s rising culinary scenes. Gaining James Beard attention as a semifinalist for Best Chef Southeast in 2017 and 2018, Little established Josephine as one of Nashville’s leading restaurants. Chef Little’s cooking revolves around roots, whether they are the turnips and carrots he plucks from the ground or the historical recipes he notably revitalized during his tenure in the Pennsylvania Dutch farm country where he grew up. Seasonal and spontaneous, Little’s ground-to-gourmet plates create a visceral experience, always meant to tell a story behind the meal. Today, Little has refined these principles and created a style of cuisine that is unique to Nashville where he blends classical French training with regional raw ingredients while exploring the Pennsylvania Dutch foodways of his youth.
