Chef/TV Star/Comedian/Proud Chicagoan Jeff Mauro is inviting YOU to COME ON OVER! Jeff (Food Network’s The Kitchen, Next Food Network Star, Sandwich King) shares his most awesome food tips, tricks and recipes, while talkin’ family, booze, entertaining guests with booze, listening to music while drinking booze, and all the stuff that makes life great…with or without booze (but mostly WITH booze). Remember, Jeff’s a classically trained chef, so if you need a proper ol’ timey holiday prime rib roast, HE’S GOT THAT RECIPE. Got food questions you can’t find the answers to on Google or Reddit…he’ll answer them! Got personal life questions? Uhh, he’ll give it a shot…after all, he has been married for over 15 years and has a 12 year-old boy with onset B.O.
Listening to Come on Over is like the pizza you grew up with. It just tastes RIGHT. Jeff's a family man who still lives in the neighborhood and each episode will make you feel at home and part of the Mauro fam. So, COME ON OVER, put your coat on the bed, your shoes in the pile and pop open up a cold one with your middle-brother Jeff.

They cover everything from menu-planning to clean-up and everything in between so that the next time you have a party, you’ll be the talk of da town!
This podcast has it all!
I am addicted to this podcast. I thoroughly enjoy hearing all about Jeff’s adventures - past and present - all in the context of his wonderful Chicago Italian-American family who pop in (or sometimes get dragged in) to the show. They would make an awesome sitcom. Yes, you will get tons of great recipes ideas and food tips from Chef Mauro but it is so much more than that. Jeff and his hilarious sister and co-host, Emily, are so multi-talented. I could listen to their banter for hours.
Emily & Jeff, I am addicted!! Just started listening a few months ago. You both play off each other perfectly! Emily, you carry the show with your ability to bounce off Jeff so naturally. I love your happy laughter, sense of humor and down to earth take on everything. Jeff, I am seeing you in a new light due to the podcast. I hale from KCMO but now reside in the Bay Area. “Youse guy’s sound like home”
Love these two
I heard about this podcast when listening to another podcast. I'd seen Jeff on the Kitchen here and there, but I don't watch much TV. I gave it a go, and it's a scream. Binged the entire series in about 2 weeks. The interaction between Jeff and Emilie is hilarous, having the other family members stop by makes you feel like you're at home. Everyone is always funny, sometimes grating, just like family. Easily my favorite podcast out of the 60 that i listen to regularly. Keep em coming!
