Selena Gomez's cooking show, which premiered 15 months ago and has already been renewed for Season 4, resonates with viewers, says Angela L. Pagán. "Many of us have learned how to create connections without being in the same room since the pandemic started," she says. "Selena Gomez manages to do it not only with the chef teaching her how to cook from a completely separate location but also with the audience at home watching. Seeing Gomez struggle to properly place the lid on an Instant Pot or failing to understand the setting on her own oven or realize in the moment that garbanzo beans and chickpeas are the same thing genuinely comforts me to my core. Her consistent blunders but ultimate successes give any beginner cook the confidence to try."
