In the tradition of Hollywood's glitziest leading ladies, Thelma Brelesky, 90, of Waterford, Connecticut is ready for her close up. Since we're in New England, seafood is a must - Mo and Thelma prepare jumbo shrimp stuffed with scallops and breadcrumbs. For dessert, Thelma shows Mo a bit of her Greek heritage by making traditional almond cookies called Kourabiedes. In addition to cooking, also Thelma teaches Mo how to swing dance, and stars in her very own pantyhose commercial!
George Martin, 79, is a Native American grandfather - he is of the Ojibwe Nation and lives in Hopkins, Michigan. In this episode George teaches Mo how to make a big pot of corn soup. Sound simple? Think again - the first step in the recipe is to light a fire without a match. George teaches Mo that handy skill, along with many beautiful traditions of his people. George also plays a mean game of mini golf.
