DAN and Steph Mulheron could star in their own TV show next year featuring their soon to be born baby.

The first-time parents said once their baby girl arrives in April, they will start to put a TV show together.

"If all goes well, it's going to be all about family cooking and showcasing Australia what produce is available around here," he said.

The couple is also looking forward when their second cookbook Eat, Meat, Sweet, featuring local food sellers and local photographer comes out in June.

"The book is a big project with 85 recipes and we highlight food with all fresh produce obtained here in the bay," Steph said.

"This book is more advanced than our last one.

"Our last book (Eat @ Home) was for the everyday cook at home and this one is for the more adventurous cook at home," Dan said.

"It's still quite simple, just a lot of different techniques and food that takes longer to cook with a good outcome.

"One of my favourites is the steak and kidney pie recipe."

The duo also expanded their range of homemade chilli sauces by introducing two new flavours.

"Tropical zinc is a pineapple-based chilli sauce that you can put on everything and the reaper chilli sauce which is the hottest chili in the world.

The couple is also working on opening a classroom-themed espresso bar in Pialba's Central Ave in February - a joint venture with their Urangan High childhood friend Tim Adams.

"Schoolhouse Espresso is set up like a classroom and people can look at how our coffee is made and ask questions," Steph said.
