With their trusty Airstream in tow, Erin and Michael traversed nearly ten thousand miles, exploring diverse landscapes from the bayous of the South to the sun-drenched citrus groves of the West, and beyond.

Erin French is seeking fresh inspiration on her horizon.

The renowned restaurateur behind Maine’s elusive dining gem, The Lost Kitchen, is embarking on a new adventure with Magnolia Network’s show, Getting Lost with Erin French. PEOPLE has an exclusive look at the trailer above, where French and her husband Michael Dutton journey across the country.

“As winter settles in Maine, the perfect time to pause and ponder the season ahead,” French reflects as the clip begins. “But this year, I’m not waiting for inspiration to come to me. I’m stepping out to seek it myself.”

The Lost Kitchen shuts its doors for winter, kicking off its annual reservation process through postcards every April. Across the eight-episode series, Erin and Michael journey in their new Airstream.

“This has been a dream of ours for so long,” Erin reflects as they explore a beach and a cactus-filled desert.

Gazing at a waterfall, Erin is captivated by the adventure she’s undertaking. “Just look at this!” she exclaims, genuinely amazed.

“I never went to culinary school, and I never had the chance to travel much,” Erin shares. “This is truly going to be a food adventure.”

The series blends lighthearted moments—like when Erin and Michael exclaim, “Holy cow!” upon seeing actual cows on a farm—with scenes of genuine inspiration. “I don’t know why food makes me so emotional; it’s just so good,” Erin remarks as a chef prepares a meal that “tastes like home.”

For a renowned chef, it’s surprising she still has “firsts” to experience, but the show reveals there’s always more to explore. “First avocado I’ve ever picked,” Erin says, standing beneath a canopy of green leaves.

From California to Kentucky, Arizona, and beyond, the Magnolia Network series follows French and Dutton as they leave their East Coast roots behind for culinary adventures.

“My goal here is to absorb as much as possible during this off-season and return home feeling fully prepared,” Erin concludes in the trailer.

Previously featured on Magnolia Network’s The Lost Kitchen, Erin French welcomed viewers into her acclaimed restaurant in Freedom, Maine.

Don’t miss the premiere of Getting Lost with Erin French on Sunday, June 23, airing at 2 p.m. ET on Magnolia Network, with new episodes airing every Sunday. Episodes will also be available for streaming the same day on Max and discovery+.
