The taste of something truly delicious slows us down and invites us to enjoy a moment completely. That was my aim with this third collection: to share recipes and stories that help us pause—paving the way for connection and delight. Even more than the meal, it’s the moments they shape that are worth holding onto.
More About Magnolia Table, Volume 3
In the third volume of Jo’s collection of meals for gathering, she’s sharing old and new recipes that she’s enjoyed the most over the years. There are 163 of them, spanning breads, breakfast, appetizers, soups & salads, sides, dinner, and of course, dessert. Some are simple weeknight meals, others are worthy of a slow day at home, and for each recipe Jo shares the heart behind it. Some were lost and recovered from an old memory, other dishes recently introduced into her family’s unfolding story. From fried okra, to pho, to pumpkin cheesecake, Jo’s evolution in the kitchen is clear—along with her continued love for nostalgic flavors. As you read and cook through, we hope you take your time, savoring every recipe, and memory, that you create.
