The old adage about too many cooks didn’t apply in Jeff Mauro’s family. Surrounded by cousins, uncles, aunts and siblings, he grew up loving to hear the phrase, “Come on over,” because it meant that spectacular food would soon be on the table.

Mauro’s first cookbook, “Come On Over: 111 Fantastic Recipes for the Family that Cooks, Eats, and Laughs Together,” re-creates many of the recipes — and some of the fun and drama — that made his family’s frequent get-togethers so memorable.
