Selena Gomez has just announced that she will have a quarantine cooking show coming out this summer. The singer made the news official by retweeting a press release with a chef and spaghetti emoji. As the press release explains, the show will air on HBO Max. Selena will not only host, but she will be an executive producer.
HBO describes the show by saying, “Since social distancing at home, Selena has been spending more time in the kitchen than she ever imagined. But despite her many talents, it remains to be seen if cooking is one of them. In each episode of this unapologetically authentic cookalong, Selena will be joined remotely by a different master chef.” They add, “Together, they’ll tackle cuisines of every variety, share invaluable tips and tricks, and deal with everything from smoking ovens to missing ingredients. Each episode will highlight a food-related charity, and this casual, funny, and informative series will embrace both the struggle and the joy of learning to cook — while inviting audiences to follow along at home.”
Gomez elaborates on the upcoming project, saying, “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. 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.”
The unscripted 10-episode cooking series is set to debut in the Summer.
