Christmas Has Come Early — Selena Gomez Is Getting Her Own Food Network Series This Holiday Season

Selena Gomez is bringing us into her home for the holidays. Food Network just announced that Gomez is hosting a brand new series called Selena + Chef: Home for the Holidays where she’ll be joined in her home each week by special guests, including several Food Network stars, and they’ll whip up comfort food inspired by the holiday season.

Four special episodes will air in total with the first episode of Selena + Chef premiering November 30 at 8 p.m. ET. In each episode, Gomez and her best friend and cohost Raquelle Stevens will meet one of four chefs — Eric Adjepong, Alex Guarnaschelli, Michael Symon, and Claudette Zepeda — who will walk Gomez and Stevens through a holiday recipe that’s near and dear to their hearts.

“The holidays have always meant so much to me,” Gomez said in a statement on the Food Network website. “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.”

Chef Alex Guarnaschelli will share her recipe for roast beef and mashed potatoes to make ahead of a tree-trimming party. Michael Symon takes on surf and turf with a steak and lobster menu. Claudette Zepeda takes Christmas south of the border with tamales and a fun twist on a classic salad. And Eric Adjepong tackles Christmas Day brunch with shrimp and banana grits and a Malva pudding.

Other special guests include Gomez’s Papa, Nana, and sister Gracie because it wouldn’t be the holidays without family!

You can tune into Food Network on November 30 to catch the first episode of Selena + Chef or stream the episode on Max. Food Network’s social media pages will also be posting exclusive interviews with Gomez and sneak peeks at upcoming episodes.
