Mo Rocca, former correspondent for Comedy Central's 'The Daily Show' will be starring in a one-hour special on the Cooking Channel entitled MY GRANDMOTHER'S RAVIOLI. The show is set to air on February 19th.
In the special, the comedian will learn to cook while at the same time, discover treasured family recipes and stories from grandparents in their kitchens across the country. From a Filipino grandmother's Paella, a Romanian grandfather's Grilled Sausages to Italian born Pop's Focaccia and Rabbit Cacciatore, the show is an hour-long celebration of the American melting pot of food, family and fun.
Rocca recently told The Hollywood Reporter, “At 42, I’m finally figuring out how to cook. My grandmother was a great cook and her ravioli was what I remember from my childhood. I wish I could go back in time and show up to her apartment a few hours before we ate, so that's the show.”
Mo Rocca made his Broadway debut in 2007 in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. He was frequently seen on VH1's I Love the 80s and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Last month he was named as a correspondent on CBS's 'Sunday Morning'.
