Join Sandwich King and Chicago Native, Chef Jeff Mauro, for an ultimate Sandwich Tour experience in his hometown of Chicago.

Guests will experience Chicago’s sandwich scene in a whole new way! Stopping at 3 of Chef Mauro's favorite spots, Cardmembers will get behind the scenes access to learn the history of each establishment, build famous sandwiches, taste test Chef's favorites and see where each of them ranks against each other.

To kick off their Saturday afternoon, guests will begin the tour at one of Mauro’s favorite Italian deli’s in the city, Tempesta Market, where they’ll try amazing sandwiches and house-cured meats of all sorts. Following Tempesta Market, guests will be transported to Al’s Beef, where they’ll be welcomed with an array of Italian combos. The final stop on this sandwich tour will be at The Loyalist, a rustic-chic gastropub home to Mauro’s absolute favorite burger in the city. Cardmembers will be seated in a private area, where they’ll enjoy burgers, cocktails and more.

As part of this experience, guests will have the opportunity to interact with the sandwich makers and have personal interactions with Chef Mauro himself, asking questions about his life, career and love of sandwiches.

Guests will receive a curated gift bag including a copy of Jeff Mauro’s cookbook, as well as other specialty items from the sandwich spots featured on the tour.

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 30th season.

Jeff is also the host of the new Prime Time Game Show, Kitchen Crash as well as the author of the best-selling cookbook, Come on Over. He is the proud creator of Mauro Provision, a new brand providing the world with all the foods Jeff and his family grew up loving, eating and cooking.
