Selena + Chef
Season PremiereSelena Gomez may not be the best chef, but she is a good student. And like any good student, she isn’t quitting yet. With that in mind — and with the help of some of the most renowned cooks out there — the singer is back in the kitchen cooking up new episodes of her HBO Max culinary show that sees experts teach Gomez how to fillet, sauté and flambé from afar. The new batch of episodes invites the likes of Curtis Stone, JJ Johnson, and José Andrés into Gomez’s pristine kitchen as they introduce her to some of their signature dishes, including mouthwatering steak sandwiches, gumbo, and gazpacho. Adding some extra sweetness (and a little dash of saltiness) are Gomez’s nana and papa, who pop in from time to time to assist the singer when she can’t find the correct utensil or nearly sets her stove on fire. All in all, it’s a delicious treat of a show that will leave you feeling a little frazzled by Gomez’s shaky attempts at cooking, and also very hungry. —Ruth Kinane
