Selena Gomez Teases First Look At New Cooking Show, 'Selena + Chef'


Selena Gomez is cookin’ up something good!

On Tuesday (August 4), the “Rare” singer invited fans into her kitchen for an exclusive sneak peek at her upcoming HBO Max cooking show, Selena + Chef. In the 20-second teaser clip from the new series, Gomez video chats with a chef who attempts to teach the pop star to make various dishes — doing so virtually while in quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic — but blunders a bit while learning the tricks of the trade.

"You see what I am cooking on? Electric," the chef tells Gomez.

"Mine is electric too," she responds, before realizing she actually has a gas stove. "Oh no, mine's fire. Sorry!"

Per the synopsis for the 10-episode series, “In each episode of this unapologetically authentic cookalong, Selena will be joined remotely by a different master chef. Together, they'll tackle cuisines of every variety, share invaluable tips and tricks, and deal with everything from smoking ovens to missing ingredients.”

What’s more, Selena + Chef, produced by the “Look At Her Now” songstress herself, each episode of the show will bring awareness to a food-related charity.

"I’ve always been very vocal about my love of food. I think I’ve been asked hundreds of times in interviews if I had another career, what would I do, and I’ve answered that it would be fun to be a chef,” Gomez said of the series when it was announced in May. “I definitely don’t have the formal training though! Like many of us while being home I find myself cooking more and experimenting in the kitchen."

In case you didn't know, a new cooking show isn't the only project Gomez has been whipping up — she just announced the release date for her cosmetics line Rare Beauty this week as well!
