Full Episode Guide
  • Jeff starts with a Hanger Steak Sandwich topped with Bourbon Creamed Spinach. Next up is a steakhouse classic with a twist — Open Faced Clams Casino With a Parsley Lemon Mayo. For a cocktail, Jeff makes the "New" Old Fashioned.

  • It's all about the sweeter side of sandwiches today: Jeff and Lorenzo stop by the Angel Food Bakery to whip up homemade graham crackers and marshmallows, which Jeff turns into Adult S'mores and Kiddie S'mores! Then, a Grilled Angel Food Cake Club and an Old Timey Chocolate Soda to wash it all down!

  • Like a man on the hunt for Bigfoot, Jeff Mauro heads to Milwaukee in search of the legendary giant macaron. He finds it in its natural habitat, the pastry kitchen of Chef Andy Schneider at La Reve. Andy takes Jeff to the pastry board and shows him how to wrestle one of these light yet chewy behemoths out of a few simple ingredients. Inspired by all he's seen, Jeff heads back to Chicago to make his own sweet sandwiches, starting with one that uses Andy's giant macaron as the bread of a sandwich stuffed with coconut lime cheesecake filling. Next up is a sweet and savory crepe, starring chocolate hazelnut, banana, and potato straws. Finally, a creamy and sinful spiked Vanilla Malted Milkshake.

  • If there's one ghoul with a passion for the freaky fun, food and sweets of Halloween, it's Jeff Mauro. And the scary good times are only fueled by the costumed excitement of his young son, Lorenzo. So Jeff heads downtown to do his homework at a place that makes a frighteningly large array of sweet cookies and delicious Halloween-themed ice cream sandwiches. He gets a lesson in some key autumn flavor combos, then heads home and gets busy with some sweet/savory Halloween combo sandwiches to feed Lorenzo and his friends before they head out to trick or treat the neighborhood. The classic flavors of a caramel apple go devilishly well with bacon in his haunted take on a Panini. Then, an eyeball-shaped ham sandwich that stares back at you and Mummy Aki Chicken Fingers straight from the tomb of King Tut will keep his little goblins fueled and focused to bring back bags stuffed with candy.

This is one sweet ride!
