The Work of a Star

Standing proudly with a juicy Turkey Patty Melt, season 7 Food Network Star winner Jeff Mauro is the network's first Sandwich King.

On Set With Jeff

Complete with a themed chalkboard, lunchmeat magnets, deli signs, bread-decorated napkin holders and more, Jeff's casual, cozy kitchen is a shrine to sandwiches.

Staring Contest

Before digging in to their Italian feast, Jeff and his wife, Sarah, share an inside joke.

Finger Food

Jeff points out how simple it is to make kids' meals playful and delicious. His star-shaped grilled cheese is a guaranteed win with son Lorenzo.

Family Time

The Mauros gather in the kitchen to enjoy a casual lunch of adult- and kid-friendly grilled sandwiches.

Look at Those Layers

Jeff admires the tasty beauty nestled inside his Monte Cristo sandwich: slices upon slices of sweet honey ham and nutty gruyere cheese.

Bread-Baking Tips and Tricks

A master bread maker and owner of Bernard's Cafe & Deli just outside of Chicago, Jeff's Uncle Joel teaches him a thing or two about baking focaccia. "I let the flavors speak for themselves," Joel says of his no-fail technique.

The Toughest Critics

Jeff serves up a double dose of sweetness with his ice cream sandwich and Chocolate Cake Shake to three young eaters: his son Lorenzo and friends.

Blooper Reel

The camera catches Jeff laughing it up during a break between takes.

Mauro Men

After years of enjoying his dad Gus' famous frittatas, Jeff shows off his own version of this family favorite, served on a crunchy toasted bagel with a spread of Sriracha-sour cream sauce.

Focused on the Food

With surgeon-like precision, Jeff carefully assembles his delicate whoopie pies, layered with warm toasted marshmallows and cool strawberries.

Love at First Bite

Jeff and Sarah cozy up for a romantic dinner for two, complete with succulent lobster rolls, steak-topped crostini and sinful chocolate sandwiches.
