We loved watching your journey on MKR, what was your most favourite experience on the show?

Heading to the Melbourne Cup & cooking for the celebs in the bird cage – it was also our wedding anniversary that same day – so it was pretty special

Pete and Manu are very composed on camera, who is the most mischievous when the camera's stop rolling?

Definitely Manu that’s for sure! He is a cheeky clown. Loves a good time & a laugh – what you see is what you get with Manu – Pete is very lovely but very professional & a straight shooter.

How has life changed in the past year after becoming the 2013 winners of My Kitchen Rules?

Complete change! We have travelled Australia doing appearances & cooking demos, went to the USA for a once in a life time holiday & we have opened our own restaurant “EAT at Dan & Steph’s” in our home town of Hervey Bay

What is your favourite Queensland inspired recipe?

It must be a QLD thing to have savoury & sweet together – such as prawns & mango salad with macadamia nuts

As a foodie, if you could travel to anywhere in the world which destination would be your first choice?

We would love to get to Germany or Japan!

If you were on an island and could only take 3 ingredients to cook with, what would they be?

Salt, beef & beer!!

Steph, what is Dan's most annoying habit in the kitchen?

He is very messy – I am his little apprentice who goes behind him cleaning up the mess
