It sounds delicious!

Blake Shelton: Come Back as a Country Boy

How to Watch

Watch the Season 26 premiere of The Voice on Monday, September 23 at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock. 

Heartfelt traditions are one of the best parts of the holiday season, and The Voice's Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are revealing some of their delicious ones. 

“Gwen and I, our tradition has become cooking during Christmas—and not just like your normal, typical [dishes]. But we always challenge ourselves and try to come up with a different, weird, complicated, difficult thing to cook every year," Shelton told Us Weekly at the 2022 Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting. "It started one year [when] she wanted to do a beef Wellington, which is not easy, by the way.”

The Voice's country king went on to explain that cooking and singing with Stefani each have unique obstacles, but cooking is less challenging because they're both in it for the fun. “Singing with Gwen is way harder than cooking with her,” he said. “Cooking is easy for us because neither one of us really know what we’re doing, and all we do is laugh the whole time. With music, we actually take [it] serious.”

Shelton and Stefani have collaborated on many musical projects, with their duet "You Make It Feel Like Christmas" being the perfect bop to play around the holiday season. The couple performed the song at the tree lighting, setting the tone for a night of festive merriment. Officially tying the knot in July 2021, Blake and Gwen will surely create more "weird and new" holiday dishes in their time. And we can't wait to hear about them!
