The Sandwich King Hits South Beach

by in Food Network Star, July 12, 2012

In between parties, cooking demos and guest-judging the Star episode airing this Sunday, last year's winner, Jeff Mauro, found some time during the South Beach Wine & Food Festival to show FN Dish where to find the best sandwiches in Miami. Over French salami and Camembert at La Sandwicherie, the Sandwich King catches us up on the whirlwind year he's had since winning Star.

Just one year ago, Jeff stood in the finalists' shoes. "I've learned so much that I've applied to every aspect of this business so far," he says. "You learn a lot through taping your season. You know, small things like smiling all the time. I'm always learning. Most of all, I've learned that it's a fun business!"

Watch the exclusive video and don't miss this Sunday's episode, where Jeff joins an all-star panel of guest judges including Sunny Andersen, Anne Burrell, Aaron Sanchez, Robert Irvine and Melissa d'Arabian.

    Don't like Jeff or his personality or his show. He is too over the top for me. I did watch part of one show and that will be the last time. The judges were partial to him from the start. If you go back and watch all the shows it's obvious

    Love Jeff
    So far I have enjoyed eating and making 19 of his outstanding sandwiches. I never watched Jeff on Food Network Star. I wish I would have seen the show. I stumbled upon his recipes and have been eating his sandwiches ever since. You go Jeff please give us more of your yummo recipes. Hey foodnetwork please rerun jeff's show and why your at it give him a new season.

    I would love to see Martie win. I am always interested food for guests and parties. I would watch that show. She has lots of experience and has a super friendly personality.

    Sorry but the self proclaimed sandwich king is pretty weak at making good sandwiches, and his stories are just forced and lame.
