Jeff Mauro Really Wants to Host ‘Saturday Night Live’
While Mauro remains a staple of the network, however, he has his eyes set on a different form of television entertainment. He recently spoke about his dream job in a Periscope Q&A.
Jeff Mauro might not be a household name on the Food Network in the way that Bobby Flay or Guy Fieri are. However, the former Food Network Star winner has built an impressive career since winning season seven of the hit TV show.
However, after graduating from college, Mauro opened Prime Time Deli and Catering and went head-first into the culinary world.
Jeff Mauro’s beginnings
Mauro was always a personality as much as he was a chef. According to his Food Network Bio, he learned how to get attention from his large family by making them laugh out loud. As such, his penchant for the performing arts came before he took a left turn to the food world.
On the side, however, he kept scratching that itch by performing in plays across Chicago. He eventually moved to Los Angeles before applying to culinary school.
While Mauro tackled several types of food, his love for sandwiches, even before he was on Food Network, Mauro used his passion for theater and performance to build a rapport with those close to him.
Since then, Mauro has become one of the most recognizable faces that the network has to offer.
It was the ideal path for someone who had a love for cooking that was only matched by his passion for entertaining. Some people seem to fall into their jobs as personality-driven Food Network celebrities, but Mauro had the right amount of experience on both ends to become a real star. After winning on Food Network Star, that path only became clearer.
Jeff Mauro hits it big
Mauro might not be the type of household name that usually hosts NBC’s Saturday Night Live, but it doesn’t mean that the chef can’t dream big. When asked by a fan what his dream job would be away from food, Mauro responded quickly via PopSugar.
