Casting Call: My Grandmother’s Ravioli

Mo Rocca and His Grandmother
Calling all grandmothers and grandfathers who are great home cooks: Mo Rocca is looking for a lesson.

If you caught My Grandmother’s Ravioli this winter on Cooking Channel, you know that Mo Rocca never had the opportunity to learn the secrets to his grandmother’s famous ravioli. In fact, he can’t really cook at all. This fall, he’ll remedy that with a whole season of the show. And we’re on the lookout for grandparents to teach him a trick or two in the kitchen.

Do you think your grandmother or grandfather could teach Mo how to cook great food? We want to know! 

We’re looking for:

  • Grandparents of all ethnicities (accents or English as a second language is not a problem!)
  • Big personalities who love to cook great food (professionals welcome)
  • Real characters (warm, fun, outgoing, fiery, sweet or even curmudgeonly) with interesting family histories or advice to give

Here’s how to apply to be on Cooking Channel:Please email a recent photo and contact information (email, telephone number, address) to Realpeoplecastingnyc@gmail.com.

Include in the email why your grandparent would be good for the show: What is his or her specialty in the kitchen? How often does he or she cook for family and friends? Include his/her background in cooking, favorite dishes and any other anecdotes that speak to their culinary passion.

Your grandma or grandpa could be on Cooking Channel! We look forward to your submission.

Commenting on this post is closed. To submit your grandmother or grandfather for a chance to be on Cooking Channel, please email Realpeoplecastingnyc@gmail.com.

    My Great Grandmother (Malmal) and Grandmother (Nana) would be perfect for the show! They love to cook for people as a way of showing their love. Nana has had a cooking program for over 20yrs for kids with dibetic needs and to show families how to share time. Food is and has always been a catalyst in our lives for as long as I can remember. Their fondest memories are of sharing time in the kitchen with their grandmother and mother while preparing meals, “A labor of Love”. The kitchen is where they learned some of their most valuable life lessons and began the journey through their “Rites of Passage” Starting at a young age of 3yrs. I started cooking with my Nana and mother during cooking demonstrations for youth groups, churches, clinices, hospitals; it started my love of cooking.

    As a way of showing their love for people I love to cook. Nana needs dibetic 20yrs behind the cooking program for children and time had a family to demonstrate how to share. While the food is always one I remember was a catalyst in our lives.
