My Grandmother’s Ravioli


Cooking Channel's hit show starring Mo Rocca needs Grandmas and Grandpas for the New Season!! You (or someone you know) could be featured on the series The New Yorker calls "charming" and Parade Magazine calls "maybe the best (cooking show) on TV"

Mo Rocca never learned to cook from his own grandmother so now he’s looking for other people’s grandmothers and grandfathers to teach him their favorite recipes.

Ruth Teig teaches Mo Rocca classic Jewish cuisine

We are looking for...

  • Grandmothers and Grandfathers
  • All ethnicities anywhere in America
  • 50 to 100 years old
  • Big personalities who can cook delicious dishes
  • Real characters: warm, fun, outgoing, eccentric, lovable, sweet, fiery, or even curmudgeonly
  • Great families
  • Accents and English as a second language not a problem
