Chip and Joanna Gaines have been working hard trying to pull together their brand new television network, but like so many other ventures, the coronavirus caused a pause in production. Rather than keep excited viewers in the dark, Chip and Jo are giving a sneak peek into some of the shows headed to Magnolia Network—the first being “The Lost Kitchen.”

The couple shared their first Magnolia Network-based conversation on Jo’s Instagram account with Erin French, a restaurant owner and main personality of the upcoming show “The Lost Kitchen,” which is also the name of French’s restaurant. Based in Freedom, Maine, the series will follow French and her staff as they navigate the restaurant industry in their unique space, which as stated in the preview below, only accepts reservations via postcard.

As Jo explains in her Instagram caption, French is a risk-taker, who is actively “making the most out of life.”

Currently, French has shifted her business into an online farmer’s market as well as an outdoor lunch and camping spot. Once the pandemic lifts, The Lost Kitchen will reopen for full service. Since the first season of her show was filmed in 2019, Magnolia viewers will get to know French and The Lost Kitchen pre-COVID.

French posted a trailer for the show on her own Instagram page, where she explains that neither she nor her staff had any formal restaurant training before she opened The Lost Kitchen. French says that diving into opening a restaurant has been one big learning experience for everyone involved, and since then, she’s mastered the use of the freshest local ingredients and keeps her focus on making people feel at home.

Chip says it best in the Magnolia Network preview video: Things have been “complicated” due to COVID-19, but showing these previews is one small way to move forward. “We thought it would be a good time to have some conversations with a lot of the people behind these shows so that you can get to know them a little better, hear how they’re dealing with all of this,” Jo says in the video. “And ask, what does the new normal look like to you,” Chip adds.

Keep your eyes peeled on Jo’s Instagram feed to see more of what’s to come on Magnolia Network.
