10 Things You Didn’t Know about Amy Schumer Learns to Cook

Amy Schumer probably isn’t someone who comes to mind when you think of cooking – until now that is. In May, Schumer became the star of her very own cooking show, Amy Schumer Learns to Cook. As the show’s title suggests, the show is less about Amy making things on her own and more about her learning how to cook from her co-star and husband, Chris Fischer. The show initially started as an experiment during quarantine, but it ended up becoming a hit and it’s officially back for a second season. While the official lockdown has ended, most people are still spending a lot of time in the house, and of course, looking for new things to eat. Keep reading for 10 things you didn’t know about Amy Schumer Learns to Cook.

1. The Family’s Nanny Films The Show

With production still shut down across the entertainment industry, networks have had to come up with creative ways to make new content. The result of that has been series that are entirely self shot. Amy Schumer Learns to Cook is no exception. The show is filmed in Schumer’s home by her son’s nanny, Jane.

2. Amy Makes Donations To Charity Through The Show

Not only is the show about making good food, it’s also about giving back to a good cause. While sharing her excitement for the show’s second season, Schumer said, “Chris and I are proud to be partnering with Food Network to donate to Colin Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights Camp whose mission is to advance the liberation and well-being of Black and Brown communities through education, self-empowerment, mass-mobilization and the creation of new systems that elevate the next generation of change leaders.”

4. Amy And Chris Aren’t The Only People On The Show

Amy and Chris are certainly the stars of the show, but since it’s filmed in their home there will be some occasional pop up appearances by their son, Gene, Jane, and the family’s dog, Tatiana. Actually seeing the show from Schumer’s kitchen definitely adds an intimate feel.

5. Viewers Will Also Get Some Relationship/Life Advice

6. Chris Is Really A Chef

Some people may be wondering what makes Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer qualified to have a cooking show. The answer is simple: Chris Fischer is actually a professional chef.

7. Amy Is In Charge Of The Drinks

8. The Show Is Meant To Help Amy Gain Confidence In The Kitchen
