We are officially nominating, “If you’re ready come and get,” as the official catchphrase of Selena Gomez’s new HBO Max show, Selena + Chef.
Set to debut “soon,” Selena shared “a little sneak of what I'm cookin' up.” And as we are suckers for a good pun and SelGo, the announcement made us very happy. The clip shows Gomez at home in her beautiful kitchen, following directions that a chef is giving her via video chat.
And by the looks of it we’re in for both tasty treats, as well as some laughs. “You see what I am cooking on? Electric," says the chef, with Gomez replying, "Mine is electric too," as she points to her gas stove. "Oh no, mine's fire. Sorry!"
The concept of the show, announced in May, was inspired by Selena’s love of cooking and her time at home experimenting with different recipes amid quarantine. “I’ve always been very vocal about my love of food,” she said in a statement at the time. “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 10-episode series will pair Selena with different master chefs for an “unapologetically authentic cook-along," as they work together through recipes, and tackle various cuisines while sharing tricks of trade and most importantly having fun. In addition, the show will highlight different food-related charities.
“Soon” can’t come soon enough, we’re ready to hang out in the kitchen with Selena.
