A Wichita couple and their stuffed, deep-fried elephant ears will be featured tonight (Thursday, Oct. 23) on an episode of “Carnival Eats,” a show that airs on the Cooking Channel, cable channel 240 and 2240 in Wichita.
Starting at 9 p.m., the channel will air back-to-back episodes of the show, one of which will feature Sean and Lisa Price, who own BakerMan Concessions. The mobile food business specializes in sweets including elephant ears, beignets, pecan rolls, chocolate eclairs and BACON CINNAMON ROLLS!!!!!
Even though they live in Wichita, the couples makes the bulk of its living at fairs on the road. The episode of the show they’re in was filmed at the Indiana State Fair. The couple also took their concession stand to the Smoky Hill River Festival in Salina this year and will be back there next year, too.
Lisa Price said she grew up in a family that made its living on concession stands that sold food at state fairs and festivals. She and her husband, Sean, bought BakerMan seven years ago.
In the episode, Sean shows host Noah Cappe how to make his special elephant ears, which are yeast pastries stuffed with pie filling, fried and dressed with butter, sugar and icing.
The couple has posted several pictures of the filming process on the BakerMan Concessions Facebook page.
