About the Book
When Jeff Mauro was growing up in his big Italian American family in Chicago, his mother would often be on the phone talking to cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and family friends. Her favorite phrase? Come on over! When Jeff heard those three words, he and his siblings knew company was coming and there would be good food to accompany their visit. A boy who loved to eat and make people laugh, Jeff was in heaven.
Now the host of the Emmy-nominated The Kitchen on Food Network, Jeff still loves entertaining with his family. For Jeff, there’s no better way to create shared memories than over a good meal. In COME ON OVER: 111 Fantastic Recipes for the Family That Cooks, Eats, and Laughs Together (on-sale: April 13, 2021) he invites everyone to share in the fun, providing delicious recipes for all occasions, from game day to birthdays to brunch, along with fun stories from his life. Whatever the get-together, Jeff has the perfect food to make it memorable—and make everyone feel like family.
Overflowing with Jeff’s big personality, celebration-ready food for friends and family, and gorgeous food and lifestyle color photographs, this laugh-out-loud-funny cookbook will inspire you to pick up the phone and invite your favorite people to share good times, eat good food, and make wonderful memories.
