Amy Schumer’s Cooking Show Already Returned For A Second Season And The Food Sounds Even BETTER

Update, August 18, 2020 12:25 p.m.: It seems like Amy Schumer’s cooking show with husband Chris Fischer just premiered, but now it’s already returned for a second season and there are even more delicious bites to be had.
According to Us Weekly, in the second season premiere episode of Amy Schumer Learns to Cook, they made some of their favorite frozen apps but from scratch, like potato skins and potstickers. They also cooked up some fancier fare like ricotta pancakes mixed with a little broccoli (!!!) inside the batter. Of course, Amy had the cocktails flowing (see: a batch of frosty piña coladas) because she truly has the best job on the show.
In a statement about the new episodes, Amy said that the couple teamed up with Food Network to make a donation to Colin Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights Camp in honor of the new season.
Update, April 29, 2020 2:07 p.m.: Amy Schumer’s cooking show with husband Chris Fischer is coming soon and we just got a few more details that are making us so pumped to watch.
It turns out the show will feature the couple, their son, his nanny Jane, and their dog cooking in their home in the woods. In fact, Jane will serve as “part-time camera operator when the baby is napping.”
They will also be phoning some celebrity friends for advice as Chris prepares the food and Amy makes drinks (fingers crossed for some cameos from Amy’s famous friends like Adele and Jennifer Lawrence!).
Amy Schumer Learns to Cook will air with back-to-back half-hour episodes each week. In the first week of eps, they’ll cook up things like poached eggs, bacon, homemade latkes, Old-Fashioneds, fried rice, wings, and peanut butter cup cookies. I am already starving.
The show premieres on Monday, May 11 at 10 p.m. on Food Network.
Original, April 12, 2020 5:04 p.m.: Like the rest of us, Amy Schumer has found herself suddenly at home, and part of that includes navigating the kitchen. Unlike the rest of us, she’s in quarantine with a professional chef, and her culinary adventures have been captured as part of a brand-new Food Network series.
Discovery announced this weekend that Amy Schumer Learns to Cook will debut later this spring. The series was self-shot at home from quarantine by Schumer and her husband, Chris Fischer, a specialist in farm-to-table cuisine. Eight half-hour episodes will also include a behind-the-scenes look at the celebrity couple’s personal life amid this historic moment.
“Amy and Chris will give an unprecedented look at their lives as they are quarantined in their house,” Courtney White, president of the Food Network, said. “Shot entirely themselves, Amy’s boundless humor and Chris’ culinary skills show viewers how they navigate life while at home making the best of these turbulent times with some good laughs and good food.”
Chris will take the lead on food, preparing comfort dishes from farm-fresh ingredients, while Amy will be in charge of mixology. The network teased relatable themes that include: brunch, fridge clean up, pasta night, tacos, and more. Amy is also using her platform to draw attention to two important issues during this time: domestic violence and humane working conditions for farmworkers.
“Chris and I are excited to make this project with Food Network combining our two passions. For Chris, it’s cooking, and for me, eating,” the comedian said. “With everything going on in the world right now, we are so grateful to be able to share an entertaining and informative experience with viewers. And it is more important than ever to look out for one another, so Chris and I will be making donations to causes dear to us: the Coalition of Immokalee Workers’ Fair Food Program and select domestic violence organizations.”
