His 4th season of "My Grandmother's Ravioli" is in the can and being rolled out on The Cooking Channel. Host Mo Rocca says the show, born of guilt from never having helped his grandmother cook, is a departure from so many food shows on today that focus on either competition or derision, see "Chopped" or "Hell's Kitchen."

Mo Rocca, the "Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me" regular and former correspondent for "The Daily Show" talks about his fascination with your grandparents and why he wants to steal your family recipes for is own selfish ends.
