Plot Synopsis

AMY SCHUMER LEARNS TO COOK is a one-hour reality series that takes a behind-the-scenes look at the lives of Amy Schumer and her husband, James Beard Award-winning chef Chris Fischer, as they quarantine themselves, their son, his nanny Jane, and their dog at their home in the woods. 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 specializes in farm-to-table cuisine, creates comfort food with a whole lot of fennel as Amy takes the lead tending to the bar. In the series opener, "Breakfast and Late-Night Eats," Amy begins her culinary education where most people begin the day -- breakfast. While Amy mixes up an Old-Fashioned cocktail, Chris shows her how to make a perfectly Poached Egg, Crispy Bacon, a Celery and Fennel Salad and some Applesauce for their son. Chris and Amy also fry up some Homemade Latkes to channel her Jewish roots. Then Chris teaches Amy how to make some of her favorite late-night treats. While Amy makes the perfect Moscow Mule, she learns the secrets to Homemade Fried Rice, Chicken Wings and Peanut Butter Cup Cookies. Amy also prepares her favorite snack to eat in bed, Matzah with Butter.
On Monday, June 1, 2020 at 10pm ET/PT, Food Network premiered "Brunch and Leftovers," the season finale of AMY SCHUMER LEARNS TO COOK. Amy and Chris are still in lockdown at home, so they're making brunch. Amy mixes Peach Bellinis while Chris walks her through making Pork Sausage and Fried Eggs with Shallots and Spinach. Then Chris candies his favorite vegetable, fennel, for a perfectly baked sweet scone. Amy and Chris have been loading up on groceries, so it's time to move into the leftover phase. Amy makes Chris a comforting Hot Toddy to get through the day while Chris uses their leftovers to make Mashed Potatoes, Warm Radish and Potato Salad with a Tonnato Dressing and the world's biggest Frittata.
