The show is aimed at showcasing how the Smollett siblings bond over food, their love for cooking, and the meals they share as a family.

The show is set in the Smollett family's kitchen, where the siblings take turns cooking and preparing various dishes. They share stories of their upbringing and discuss how they bonded over food growing up. Each episode of the show focuses on a particular occasion or theme, such as birthdays, holidays, and family gatherings, and the dishes they make coincide with that theme.

The Smollett siblings come from a family of food enthusiasts, with their parents being restaurateurs. This background heavily influences the show, with the siblings using the knowledge and skills they have learned from their parents to create meals that are not only delicious but also healthy.

One of the unique things about the show is that the Smollett siblings take turns in the kitchen, with each sibling bringing their own flair and style to the dishes they prepare. Jurnee brings her vegan and gluten-free expertise to the dishes she makes, Jussie loves to experiment with spices and flavorings, and Jake enjoys using Southern-inspired flavors in his cooking.

The show is not only about cooking, but it also highlights the importance of family and traditions. The siblings recount their favorite family dishes, the memories that come with them, and the importance of preserving family recipes. They also incorporate their cultural backgrounds into their cooking, with their African American and Jewish heritage being a recurring theme throughout the show.

The show is not only entertaining but also informative. The Smollett siblings share valuable tips on healthy eating, how to cook on a budget, and how to make the most out of your ingredients. They also showcase how to make pantry staples from scratch, such as tomato sauce and peanut butter.

In addition to the cooking, the show features cameos from the siblings' famous friends, including their sister Jurnee's husband, Josiah Bell, and their brother Jussie's Empire co-stars, Terrence Howard and Gabourey Sidibe. The show also showcases their family and friends who visit them in the kitchen, adding to the warm and familial atmosphere of the show.

Overall, Smollett Eats is a wholesome and heartwarming cooking show that not only showcases the Smollett siblings' love for food but also emphasizes the importance of family, tradition, and healthy eating.
