So you think your Grandma or Grandpa can cook? Cooking Channel has put out a casting call. Here are the details:
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.
