Cooking and Conversation with Jeff Mauro
Co-host of The Kitchen and Host of Food Network’s Sandwich King, Emmy-nominated celebrity chef Jeff Mauro combines his passions for cooking and comedy in his hilarious interactive cooking demonstrations. As he shares his cooking talents with listeners, taking them step by step through a new recipe, he’s also cracking jokes and engaging with the audience.
Emmy-Nominated Celebrity Chef Jeff Mauro was born and raised in Chicago where he was determined from an early age to become the funniest chef in the world. After years spent cooking in restaurants, graduating with honors from Culinary School, and performing on stage, he landed himself on Season 7 of the hit show Food Network Star. He ultimately won the competition by combining his passions for cooking with comedy and landed his own series, the Emmy-nominated Sandwich King. After five successful seasons to date, he was tapped by the Food Network to also co-host the hit daytime show, 4 time Emmy-nominated The Kitchen, now in it’s 28th season. His new Prime Time Game Show Kitchen Crash premiers in January and his long-awaited cookbook Come on Over releases April 13th.
Jeff is also the proud creator of Mauro Provision, a new brand providing the world with all the foods Jeff and his family grew up loving, eating and cooking. He has been a guest co-host of The Today Show and featured on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Steve Harvey, Good Morning America, CBS This Morning, Chopped, and Beat Bobby Flay among many others. He also hosts the hit weekly podcast Come on Over with his little sister Emily.
He still lives “in the same damn neighborhood he grew up in” with his wife Sarah, his son Lorenzo & their two dogs JoJo & Pinot G. His favorite color is Pastrami and his favorite smell is meat smoke.
