Register for AVANT's Holiday Celebrity Chef Cooking Demo

featuring Jeff Mauro, 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 26th season. His new Prime Time Game Show Kitchen Crash premiers in January and his long-awaited cookbook Come on Over releases March 23rd

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 still lives “in the samn 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.

We’ll start with 30 minutes of technology appetizers from sponsoring vendors, dishing out case studies of solutions that can make a difference in today’s challenging times. At around 4:30 Central we’ll start a live cooking class with Jeff.

Have your kitchen gear ready for a fun night of spectacular cooking! Or just tune in and sit back for the demo and Q&A – either way, spouses and kids are welcome to join in! As a bonus, 50 people who fill out the survey will be randomly selected to win The Always Plan as a giveaway for our holiday cooking event!
