Selena Gomez is jumping back into the kitchen for some holiday cheer.

PEOPLE and People en Español have a first look at the superstar’s Food Network four-part special, Selena + Chef: Home for the Holidays. Beginning Thursday, Nov. 30 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, Gomez will learn the secrets to holiday hosting from four different celebrity chefs.

Alex Guarnaschelli, Michael Symon, Claudette Zepeda, and Eric Adjepong will each join the Only Murders in the Building star for an episode.

Gomez will learn how to make roast beef and creamy mashed potatoes from Guarnaschelli — and classic steak and lobster from Symon. The actress will also learn how to make Christmas tamales from Zepeda, and Adjepong will teach Gomez how to make shrimp and banana grits and a South African dish known as malva pudding to ring in the New Year.

“The holidays have always meant so much to me,” Gomez said in a statement. “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.”

Wearing a red apron and bow in her hair, Gomez looks festive and fun in a sneak peek photo from the show. Her home is also dressed for the occasion, with a decorated tree and lights visible in the background.

In addition to the chefs, friends and family will make appearances throughout the special, including Gomez’s best friend Raquelle Stevens, who will be learning to cook alongside the actress, as well as Gomez’s grandparents, Papa and Nana, and her sister, Gracie.

Throughout the series, Gomez also encouraged her instructors to highlight a nonprofit organization of their choice, resulting in hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations.

Selena + Chef: Home for the Holidays premieres Thursday, Nov. 30 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Food Network. It will also be available to stream on MAX.
