This Christmas Tradition Turned Into A Super-Scary Disaster For Joe Jonas

December 23, 2016 - Jonas Brothers

The Jonas brothers might be famous for many things—making tween girls cry-shriek over a Disney Channel strike Camp Rock, envisioning what a universe would be like in a year 3000, and oh, churning out hits, both as a family-based child rope and on their own—but it turns out, they’re each bit as spooky with food as they are musically inclined.

The family, that is chronicling a opening of their restaurant, Nellie’s Southern Kitchen, in a new Food Network uncover (Jonas Restaurant: Family Style, airing Monday, Dec. 26 during 7 p.m. EST), talked to Delish about some of their favorite holiday traditions, and food was a centerpiece of usually about all of them. One holiday memory, however, wasn’t utterly so pleasant.

Before Kevin, Nick and Joe became The Jonas Brothers, furloughed a universe year-round, a family would go full Bubba Gump during Christmastime, cooking shrimp scampi, shrimp creole and shrimp cocktail, their mother, Denise Jonas, recalled.

“Kevin [Sr., my husband,] and a boys would start in a afternoon bark and cleaning pounds and pounds of shrimp,” she explained. “One year, Joe’s hands blew up. We suspicion for years that he was allergic to shrimp.”

Though it’s misleading what caused a DNCE singer’s hands to bloat up, a family recently schooled he isn’t indeed allergic to shellfish, that means he can go behind to enjoying those family recipes once again. These days, though, all 3 sons hang to creation a hors d’oeuvres, specializing in cheese platters and olive trays.

Great news! @nelliessouthernkitchen has a special on @foodnetwork Dec 26 during 7 PM – http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/the-jonas-family-takes-center-stage-on-new-food-network-special-jonas-restaurant-family-style-300376665.html

That isn’t a usually food on palm around a holidays. On Christmas Day, there’s usually about each form of cuisine we could imagine: tamales in a morning, followed by ham and lasagna during dinner, and pies and cookies for dessert.

There’s also one Jonas family must-have we can try during their new grill in Belmont, North Carolina, that has been described as a “true Southern nation wonderland.” It’s called Sweet Caroline, done with honeyed potatoes, caramelized pecans and brownish-red sugar.

“It’s a smashing dish,” Denise wrote around email.

Jonas fans—and critical Southern food lovers—guess that means you’re in for a highway trip.
