Amy begins her culinary education where most of us begin the day – breakfast. While Amy mixes up an Old-Fashioned cocktail to start the day, Chris shows Amy how to make a perfectly Poached Egg, Crispy Bacon, a Celery and Fennel Salad, and some Applesauce for their son. Then, Chris and Amy fry up some Homemade Latkes to channel her Jewish roots. Chris is determined to teach Amy how to make some of her favorite late-night treats. While Amy makes the perfect Moscow Mule, she learns the secrets behind Homemade Fried Rice, Chicken Wings and Peanut Butter Cup Cookies, while Amy also prepares her favorite snack to eat in bed - Matzah with Butter.
Amy and Chris dig into a comfort food staple – sandwiches. Amy starts the meal off right with a Tinto de Verano as Chris and Amy wax nostalgic about their trip to Spain. Chris then teaches Amy the art of making sandwiches, including a Roasted Vegetable and Amy’s dream train station sandwich of Prosciutto with Brie, accompanied by a Panzanella Salad. Amy and Chris decide the only answer for being quarantined is a good carbo-load. Chris starts up the feast with two kinds of Pasta, some Radishes and a Sweet Pea Crostini to go along with a refreshing Crab, Tomato and Avocado Salad. Amy then sits back to relax with a large glass of wine.
Amy and Chris get ready for taco night. First on the menu, Chris teaches Amy how to make Tempura-Battered Fish Tacos, with Guacamole and Pea Shoots and Rice, while Amy sets out to make a Paloma. Amy and Chris both agree that every night is movie night during quarantine. Chris teaches Amy how to make movie night noshes, including Crispy Potatoes, Lamb Sliders and a very inventive Greek Salad Dip, while Amy makes a Martini to accompany.
With Amy and Chris still in lockdown at home they are making brunch. Amy mixes the Peach Bellinis while Chris walks her through Fried Eggs with Shallots, Spinach, some Pork Sausage and Pancakes. Then, Chris candies his favorite vegetable fennel for a perfectly baked sweet scone. Amy and Chris have been loading up on groceries, so it is 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.
