After spending an appropriate amount of time in mourning following the announcement that Fixer Upper will soon be ending, we are now eagerly anticipating any and all new projects from Chip and Joanna Gaines. And luckily, we didn’t have to wait long: A new cookbook that showcases some of the couple’s favorite recipes is officially in the works.
The news came via an Instagram post from Joanna Gaines on September 22. It didn’t reveal much—aside from the fact that recipes for brownie pie and mac and cheese will thankfully be included—but we do know the title.
Judging by its name, The Magnolia Table Cookbook will presumably feature some standouts from the design duo’s upcoming restaurant, Magnolia Table. First announced earlier this summer, the restaurant is said to be built around breakfast, and will include hearty comfort foods like homemade biscuits with crafted jams and something called the Gaines Brothers Burger.
For those of us still convalescing from the news that one of our favorite design shows is ending, this cookbook is just one of the silver linings to come from the fact that Chip and Joanna are taking time to focus on other projects.
An upcoming home decor collection in partnership with Target will soon make the couple’s signature style accessible and affordable to fans across the US. The couple also recently completed renovation on their second vacation home rental, and it’s available now. And both Gaineses are working on their own books: Joanna’s is a design book featuring the designer's tips and tricks, and Chip’s is a memoir slated to be released in fall 2017.
So, while the Fixer Upper news is sad, this is definitely not the last we’ll be seeing of the First Couple of HGTV.
