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 during 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.”
