The Food Network has announced the upcoming premiere of Selena + Chef: Home for the Holidays. It will see the Golden Globe nominee back in the kitchen, where she’ll learn how to cook the perfect holiday meals. The four-part special is scheduled to premiere on November 30 on the Food Network, followed by its streaming release on Max.
“The holidays have always meant so much to me. It was an honor to have these amazing chefs in my kitchen to introduce some of their favorite foods and what makes the holidays special for them,” Gomez said in a statement.
What to expect in Selena + Chef: Home for the Holidays?
Selena + Chef: Home for the Holidays will feature all-star chefs Eric Adjepong, Alex Guarnaschelli, Michael Symon, and Claudette Zepeda, who will introduce their favorite dishes and share their culinary wisdom to Gomez. In addition to the singer-actress, the special will also include guest appearances by Gomez’s grandparents and sister Gracie.
“Over the course of the four specials, the chefs will walk Selena and her best friend, Raquelle Stevens, through their culinary paces to make the season great,” reads the logline. “In Selena + Alex, Chef Alex Guarnaschelli and Selena prepare roast beef and ‘Chantilly’ mashed potatoes for a tree-trimming party. In Selena + Michael, Michael Symon pops by for a ‘Surf & Turf’ Christmas as he and Selena tackle steaks and lobster. In Selena + Claudette, Chef Claudette Zepeda plans a Mexican feast with a traditional Latin Christmas dish of tamales and a unique twist on a historic salad. Then, in Selena + Eric, it is time to ring in the New Year with Chef Eric Adjepong for a brunch that includes Shrimp & Banana Grits and Malva Pudding.”
The show is executive produced by showrunner Shauna Minoprio, Gomez, Eli Holzman, Aaron Saidman and Melissa Stokes. It hails from Sony Pictures Television’s The Intellectual Property Corporation (IPC) and Gomez’s July Moon Productions.
