We fans may know the American chef Erin French just as the owner of The Lost Kitchen, a renowned 40-seat restaurant in Freedom, Maine. But, she has been working in the food industry since long before she got this immense fame and love from people for starring in The Lost Kitchen on the Magnolia Network. After doing so well in the very first season, the series returned on discovery+ and the Magnolia app with a second season on 22 October 2021.
