In Jo’s newest cookbook, Magnolia Table, Volume 3, she shares a collection of 163 recipes that have one thing in common—they’re made for savoring every step that brings us to the table.
To savor something usually goes beyond taste. It applies to the process of becoming, from start to finish. A recipe may begin on a page, but then it transforms from a medley of flavors into an experience worth enjoying with all five senses. Any hour around a table can be a favorite one, and this collection of recipes gently reminds us that slowing down is essential to savoring those treasured moments we'll carry forward.
Here are a few dishes straight from the pages of Magnolia Table, Volume 3. We hope you savor the taste, yes, but also everything in-between.
