"My Grandmother's Ravioli" Season 3 on the Cooking Channel follows Mo Rocca as he discovers treasured family recipes and a whole lot more from grandparents across the country.

As a child, Mo enjoyed Sunday family dinners at his grandmother's house, highlighted by "Momma's" signature ravioli. Although he still cherishes the memory of those special meals, he never learned her recipes. So on each episode of "My Grandmother's Ravioli," Mo does the next best thing: he gets a cooking lesson from someone else's grandparent. As they welcome him into their kitchens and teach him the secrets of their favorite dishes, they also serve up inspiring, personal and often funny family tales.

Season 2

In the Season 2 premiere episode, Mo visits with feisty Philadelphia native Clara Corrado, a 94-year-old with triplet great-grandsons in the Air Force. Each is stationed far from home, so Clara enlists Mo to help make some of her signature dishes to ship off to the three young military men. Under Clara's guidance, they create care packages filled with special treats like Italian Wedding soup, lemon-flavored pizzelle and lots of love.

Throughout the season Mo visits with grandparents across the U.S. who introduce him to mouth-watering home cooking from a variety of cuisines including Portuguese, Japanese, Greek and Syrian. Among them are the always amiable Sonny Young, 71, of Rutland, Vt., who whips up a big pancake breakfast with homemade maple syrup; Millie Martin, 70, of Rock Hill, S.C., who teaches Mo how to make down home Southern cooking with a side trip to sing in the church choir; and Vincent Esposito, 57, from Palm City, Fla., who teaches Mo his father's secret technique for making homemade mozzarella cheese followed by a lesson in pumping iron!

Season 3

In the season premiere, Mo travels to Pennsylvania Dutch Country and visits septuagenarian couple Bonnie and Barry Boyer to discover their unique traditions, language and cuisine. Mo and the Boyers prepare delicious fare including buttery potato filling, shoo-fly pie and stuffed pig stomach. This meal is not exactly light, so Barry, a legendary high school basketball coach, helps Mo burn some calories by putting him through the paces on the court.

Upcoming episodes feature a California grandmother who makes Korean specialties like kimchi and galbi; a chef for the Los Angeles Dodgers who whips up a crowd-pleasing lasagna, short ribs and green beans; a Marin County grandma who was in activist in the 1960s and forages for natural ingredients and Mexican grandparents who inspire a telenovela-style show.
