?Season Premiere Wednesday, July 29 at 8pm ET/5pm PT on Cooking Channel
          Kicking off on the east coast, Mo's travels take him to the plains of Oklahoma, the cornfields of Iowa and the barbecue pits of Texas to meet grandparents and learn their food traditions and family lore. From a Hungarian grandmother who teaches him to make goulash and a Chinese grandfather stuffing a whole fish to a Nepalese grandmother demonstrating her traditional dumpling dish, coincidentally known as "momos," Mo's home kitchen visits are filled with delicious food, heartwarming stories and laughter. 
          Season four also amps up the action, and Mo takes on hunting, goat shopping and chuck-wagoning.  In "My Grandmother's Ravioli," inspired by his own grandmother's Sunday family dinners, Mo is welcomed into the kitchens of grandparents across the country who lovingly and patiently teach him how to make their favorite family dishes and share the stories behind them.

          "Mo's unique talent has made My Grandmother's Ravioli a funny, poignant and joyful celebration of grandparents and food traditions from all over the world," said Michael Smith, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Cooking Channel.  "We are excited for viewers to be charmed by season four."
          In the season premiere, Mo visits ninety-something Ruth Taube from New York City's historic Lower East Side.  She teaches Mo many things, including how to make a mean Matzo Ball Soup and Farfel.  The duo also hit some classic Manhattan specialty stores to buy pickles and black and white cookies to bring to Westchester for a family dinner with Ruth's daughter and grandchildren.  Upcoming episodes include a fried chicken feast in Iowa with a grandmother of 46; a chuck-wagon re-enactment from yesteryear with an Oklahoma grandfather; a hunting expedition with a Dallas grandma and a visit to a nun's convent in upstate New York.
