Bring Selena + Chef to your Kitchen – Here’s How!

What if we told you that you could bring recipes from world-renowned chefs made by SELENA GOMEZ to your kitchen? Exciting, right?


Her show Selena + Chef, premiering on HBO Max, started during the lockdown in 2020 and has gained love from all over the world. What makes the show so entertaining is Selena’s adorable confusion around her own kitchen, legendary chefs in their natural habitat, Raquelle’s (Selena’s roommate at the time) unconditional love for food, and, of course, the delicious meals. Oh, and we can’t forget about the iconic Papa (Selena’s grandpa) constantly and hilariously judging Selena’s knife skills!
