Chris Fischer and Amy Schumer (Food Network)

The ongoing quarantine has forced us all to work on our culinary skills, since we no longer have the luxury of ordering takeout food or going to a nearby restaurant. This might be one of the few rare things which the incredibly talented Amy Schumer and we have in common - our ignorance when it comes to cooking. On the upcoming Food Network show 'Amy Learns to Cook', the comedian will learn how to cook some basic yet delicious dishes during the quarantine time from none other than her chef husband, Chris Fischer. We too can watch and learn alongside our favorite comedian the basics of cooking without burning down the house.

Release date

'Amy Schumer Learns to Cook' will be premiering on Monday, May 11 at 10 pm ET/PT only on Food Network with back-to-back half-hour episodes. Following which you can watch new episodes every Monday,


Amy Schumer is quarantining with her husband, Chris Fischer, their toddler son, a cute pooch, and a nanny. The comedian will be picking up the skill of cooking from her award-winning chef husband, while their nanny will be dabbling with the camera. Since the show is being shot during the quarantine period, the couple's nanny will be filming the show, while the couple's son is napping. Through the course of the series, we see Fischer teaching his wife various dishes, while their celebrity friends occasionally drop in to surprise the couple (virtually of course). Courtney White, the president of Food Network described the show as "fun and great TV".

She said, "Watching Amy and Chris is intimate, real, fun and just great TV. The nanny holds the camera, as Chris makes incredibly delicious food and Amy’s sharp wit delivers laugh out loud moments all the way through. Mix that with poignant moments of a family sharing their challenges during this pandemic and you have a series that many will relate to and some will likely become addicted to.”
