Selena Gomez has produced her cooking show for HBO Max.
Amid the pandemic in the United States, Selena Gomez has observed self-isolation with family members and a few friends. But, aside from staying indoors and spending quality time with them, she has also filmed and produced materials for HBO Max.
The series titled, Selena + Chef, takes on the songstress’ journey in learning more about cooking. Ahead of its premiere on the platform, she revealed a few personal notes about her “dishes-to-impress” during the Television Critics Association press tour.
Selena Gomez impresses friends with this dish
During the presentation for her upcoming show, Selena Gomez received questions about her favorite dishes, and the meals she prepares to “impress” guests, according to Cheat Sheet. She, reportedly, revealed that her Miso Soup has always impressed her friends.
As for her favorite “comfort food,” the “Taki-Taki” singer said that it would be her “nana’s chicken” and dumplings. She explained that the dumplings are, somehow, a staple in the South where she grew up. They are these biscuit-like snacks, adding that they are “yummy.” I would say these are my “favorite,” she added.
Aside from her revealing her favorite dishes and meals, the publication said that she also launched a playlist on Spotify, Cooking Together: Selena Gomez. It, reportedly, features 44 tracks, including songs from Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa, and BLACKPINK. As noted, they are the songs that she listens to while cooking.

Selena + Chef on HBO Max
Selena + Chef is a 10-episode non-scripted material for HBO Max, according to Deadline. It will drop on the platform on August 13.
Selena Gomez, reportedly, shared that they filmed the series “remotely” due to the lockdown measures amid the pandemic. She also deemed the whole process as “very odd,” stating that the crew members, alongside their camera, are all outside her home, recording through the glass walls of her home.
They did not come in contact with the Wizards of Waverly Place actress and the people inside with her. Although the production staff always received regular testing and wore face coverings, they all, reportedly, operated remote cameras, plus the “rigged” ones in Gomez’s kitchen and living room.
The setting of the show
Reports said that in every episode of Selena +Chef, the 28-year-old celebrity cooks with a world-renowned chef. The guest chefs include Angelo Sosa, Nyesha Arrington, Antonia Lofaso, Roy Choi, Daniel Holzman, Jon & Vinny, Candice Kumai, Ludo Lefebvre, Nancy Silverton, and Tonya Holland.
The chefs, reportedly, guide Selena Gomez in making the dishes, while they all remain in their respective homes. Meanwhile, her grandparents and friends, who are quarantining with her, are all the “judges” of her culinary skills.
