The singer-actress will be taking the heat in the kitchen as she slices and dices her way to impress her grandparents and two friends who serve as taste testers.
“Selena + Chef” was filmed in the kitchen of Selena Gomez’s Los Angeles-area house.
“I really thought this would be something lighthearted because I was getting definitely down,” she said in a video conference Wednesday.
“Of course, there’s more important things going on but this was an opportunity to make something that could make people smile.”
Guiding Gomez remotely are chefs Nyesha Arrington, Roy Choi, Tonya Holland, Daniel Holzman, Jon & Vinny, Candice Kumai, Ludo Lefebvre, Antonia Lofaso, Nancy Silverton and Angelo Sosa.
They coach her through making such dishes as Korean breakfast tacos, matcha chocolate chip cookies, spicy miso ramen, seafood tostada and cheese souffle.
There was no one off-camera perfectly prepping the ingredients and Gomez didn't glam up her clothing or makeup while chopping and stirring.
Remote cameras set up in her kitchen captured Gomez's mishaps that include flames in the oven and squirting juices.
She wields sharp knives while struggling with a slimy octopus and pulls organs out of a raw chicken.
