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.
In this episode, Mo is safe in the kitchen because both Sally Starin, 70, and June Ploch, 68, are nurses, living in Montclair, New Jersey. Sally is the head cook of the household - she shows Mo how to make a delectable roast chicken with a three-nut stuffing and a colorful side dish of vegetable hash. June supervises the frosting of a yummy marble cake.
