Joanna Gaines sends sweet letter to fans

As Magnolia Table with Joanna Gaines premiered, fans that are subscribed to the Magnolia newsletter were greeted with a special letter from the star. Joanna talks about how special the kitchen area of one’s home is.

“There’s an old adage about how the kitchen is the heart of the home, and as trite as that may sound, I’ve come to believe it’s true,” Joanna writes. “Our kitchens hold us together. No matter the size or shape, if you have a great big island or limited counter space, this room tells a similar story.”

Joanna goes on to list the multiple life events one gathers in the kitchen for like birthdays and holidays.

“This cooking show is a celebration of just that — family, community, and traditions that begin in the kitchen and unfold around the table,” Joanna continued. “It’s for this very reason that I wanted to kick off episode one with my Fatayar and Lebanese Salad. These recipes bring back memories of my grandfather and the many times he made this for our family growing up.”

More episodes of Magnolia Table with Joanna Gaines are expected to premiere this year.
