You haven't met anyone quite like Michele Riggi! Michele and her husband Ron built a 20,000 square foot castle made of stone on the main drag of Saratoga Springs, New York. Palazzo Riggi - as they call it - is complete with a giant pool, a Balinese Spa, eleven bathrooms, a movie theater and bowling alley. Oh yeah, and her forty beloved dogs with names like Andy Panda, Coco Chanel, and Vicente Fox. Michele is also a great cook - she'll show Mo how to make a delectable eggplant parmigiana and something special for the dogs too.
Clida Ellison, 76, may live in Detroit, Michigan, but this southern transplant prefers to cook the dishes she grew up with in her native town of Natchitoches, Louisiana. Mo learns how to make Clida's favorite Creole dishes - gumbo, pralines and stuffed crab.
