Genre: Cooking, How-to
Premise: ``You can make any meal into a sandwich and any sandwich into a meal.'' That's the mantra of ``Food Network Star'' season seven winner and self-proclaimed ``Sandwich King'' Jeff Mauro. Before earning a living as a chef, Mauro worked as a professional comedian in Los Angeles. With his comedy background, viewers can be assured that Mauro inserts humor and personality into his presentations as he shows how to make meals that are placed in between slices of bread. The Chicago-area native visits some of his favorite area eateries to find fresh ingredients to use in his sandwich-based meals. Don't expect Mauro to make simple grilled cheese sandwiches. His recipes are more complex than that (he is the king after all). Beer-battered cod sliders and Italian-style beef sandwiches are included on the menu of the ``Sandwich King.''
