Discovery+ launched on January 4, and it's already become the go-to place for viewers to catch up on their favorite shows while exploring the new series exclusive to the platform. Magnolia Table (starring Joanna Gaines—have you heard of her!?) is one of those shows and new episodes from season two will begin being released starting today. In a Delish-exclusive clip from the new season, Joanna talks about how the Magnolia Table restaurant came to be.

Magnolia Table is Chip and Joanna's restaurant located in Waco, TX, that focuses on breakfast and lunch foods. Those menu options were actually inspired by Chip's obsession with breakfast, Jo explains in the video while making French toast.

"Chip is the breakfast guy in the family and I remember, I'll never forget, we were all in a meeting on day at Magnolia and Chip walks in and is like 'Guys, we're gonna do a restaurant,'" Jo said: "And so from there we kind of thought about it and instead of doing dinner we decided hey, Chip loves breakfast, this is kind of his thing and that is how Magnolia Table came to be."

In the video, Jo is also making her French Toast Crunch recipe which includes corn flake pieces to add texture to every piece of bread. While dipping the bread in her French toast mixture and coating them in corn flakes, Jo continued to explain the brainstorming that went on before opening Magnolia Table officially: "[Chip] says I ruined it, though, when I made it all pretty. He wanted it a little bit more like a dive. He says I made it fancy the second I added avocado toast."

Episodes from season two of Magnolia Table will hit discovery+ weekly starting today and season three is set to air on July 15. You can subscribe to discovery+ if you haven't already here.
