Ray Cannata has eaten at over 750 New Orleans restaurants, so he knows a thing or two about hanging out. Margo Moss has turned Ted's Frostop from a greasy spoon into a considerably less greasy but not quite silver spoon. When the sun goes down on The NOLA Brewing Tap Room in the Irish Channel, Ray and Margo entertain members of New Orleans restaurant community. Their guests bring along a friend, a +1. Anything can happen.
Kelly Boffone started out baking at Maurice's in Metairie when she was 18. It was the ideal job: starting at 4am meant she could stay all night partying and go straight to work. Little did young partying Kelly know that she would turn out to be a naturally super-talented baker and after graduating from John Folse's cooking school end up being head pastry chef at Emeril's.
Having reached the top of the mountain early in life, Kelly decided to channel her "God-given gifts" into serving her community. And that's how she came to open The Peacebaker, a dedicated Gluten free bakery, certified Kosher, dairy free, vegan, allergy friendly bakery making cakes, cupcakes, pastries, brownies, cookies, king cakes and more.
And by the way, The Peacebaker ships and delivers, anywhere (thanks, Dad).
If you visit The Peacebaker on Veterans Boulevard (at the Veterans exit of the I-10 right by Tiffin Inn) you'll meet Sarah Hairston. Sarah is the face of the bakery and on this show she's Kelly's +1.
Sarah started at The Peacebaker for no better reason than she needed a job, but fate and gluten has a funny way of changing lives and Sarah is now a leading gluten and allergy free baked goods expert with knowlewdge that rivals Dr Oz.
