Dan and Steph want to stay in Hervey Bay despite job offer

Contributed

HE IS known for his brutal honesty on the top-rating television program My Kitchen Rules.

Now the show's toughest judge, Colin Fassnidge, wants to work with Hervey Bay couple Dan and Steph Mulheron, the winners of this year's MKR series.

Dan said it was a fantastic opportunity which came about after he and Steph helped the Sydeny-based chef at the Noosa Food and Wine Festival last weekend.

"We worked our butts off and I think he really appreciated it," Dan said.

But while the couple has received all kinds of offers of work since the show ended, Dan said they were committed to staying in Hervey Bay for the time being.

"We're not about to go anywhere," Dan said.

"We will be sticking to the Bay for a while - it's a great base for us.

"We love the Bay and we love where we live."

He said nothing had been locked in but it was true that he and Colin had discussed working together in the future.

Dan also dispelled a few myths about just how tough the Irish judge is.

"He's a big teddy bear really," Dan said wryly.

Learning how to run a business would be one of the major benefits of working with Colin down the track, Dan said.

He said he had been approached by many people asking when he would be starting his sausage shop.

Dan said while that was definitely on the cards, the couple were doing their research before committing to anything.

"We can't jump into it straight away," he said.

Opening their own restaurant was another possibility, he said.
