Amy Schumer & Her Husband Are Quarantined In a Friend’s House
While filming their cooking show, Schumer and husband Fischer are calling Martha’s Vineyard home, as reported by Food Network. Schumer has a professional past as a bartender, while Fischer is a chef. He has worked at the restaurant Beach Plum, as well as The Covington Restaurant, according to The Huffington Post. While Fischer does the cooking, Schumer teaches viewers how to make certain drinks.
Fischer is also an author and wrote the James Beard Award-winning “The Beetlebung Farm Cookbook: A Year of Cooking on Martha’s Vineyard”. His family actually owns Beetlebung Farm. So, Martha’s Vineyard is very familiar to him. To boot, Martha’s Vineyard is where Fischer and Schumer first met.
Chris Fischer Named the Show
In an interview with Fatherly, Schumer said that her husband came up with the name of their show Amy Schumer Learns to Cook. She explained, “Chris came up with the name and that’s exactly what the show is. For me, it was nerve wracking. Everything wasn’t in my control, which was a little triggering. I was a little defensive at first, but once I realized it was just us being ourselves I trusted that we were doing the best we could. And he’s the best cook I ever tasted … which sounds disgusting.”
Fischer said, “There’s no intentional element to anything. One day we were taking a walk and I was like, ‘Why don’t I teach you how to cook.’”
Schumer also went on to say that she’s so happy she’s able to include her baby boy, Gene.
