Amy Schumer Learns to Cook

Stand-up comedian and actress Amy Schumer and her husband, chef Chris Fischer, have quarantined themselves, their son, his nanny Jane, and their dog at their home in the woods as they share a behind-the-scenes look at their lives.

Chris and Amy bring viewers into their kitchen and share what home-life is like, including Jane's promotion to part-time camera operator when the baby is napping.

During this unusual time, phoning a friend becomes a reality as the couple also stay in contact with family and some surprise celebrity friends via video, all the while Chris - who specialises in farm-to-table cuisine - creates comfort food through eight episodes with a whole lot of fennel as Amy takes the lead tending to the bar.

In the series premiere, "Breakfast and Late-Night Eats": Amy begins her culinary education where most of us begin the day - at breakfast.

Chris shows Amy how to make a perfectly poached egg, some crispy bacon, and a celery and fennel salad, while homemade latkes are frying up and Amy crafts an old-fashioned cocktail to start the day.

Chris then works on a menu for some of Amy's favourite late-night treats, including homemade fried rice, chicken wings, peanut butter cup cookies, and Amy's favorite snack to eat in bed, matzah with butter, while Amy makes a Moscow Mule for a night cap.

Other episodes feature Amy and Chris enjoying taco night with tempura-battered fish tacos, and Chris and Amy taking time to enjoy a quarantine movie night dinner with crispy potatoes, lamb sliders and a very inventive Greek salad dip.
