Former Daily Show correspondent Mo Rocca is going to the right place to learn how to cook: the Cooking Channel.
Rocca will star in an hour-long special called My Grandmother’s Ravioli, in which the satirical comic receives cooking lessons from America’s grandmothers and grandfathers. The special, which is being eyed as a potential series, is set to air Feb 19 on Cooking Channel.
“At 42, I’m finally figuring out how to cook,” Rocca tells THR. “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.”
