Who is Nick Makrides?
Hi! I’m Nick and if I could choose a final meal it would be fresh bread and all the cheese. It’s a cruel world though because bread and cheese, they just don’t love me back.
I live in Melbourne Australia with my husband and our little girl. This is my little spot on the internet where you can find all of my recipes. I love cooking. I was raised by a Greek Yiayia (grandma) and my mum who cooked up delicious storms. My obsession with cooking and learning about food started then and continues today with The Scran Line. It started off as, (and is still to this day) a passion project that allows me to share my two biggest interests in life:
DESIGN + PHOTOGRAPHY + FOOD!
What the heck is a SCRAN tho?
Well, I was very briefly (and I can’t stress that enough) in the Royal Australian Navy. I went in as a navy cook and lasted 7 weeks at recruit school before I discharged myself. It just wasn’t for me. The navy has it’s own words, almost it’s own language that they use for certain words. The hall where you eat food is called the Mess Hall. Which is ironic because it’s the cleanest place I’ve ever been. Scran translates to food. So when you’d stand in line for food, you’d stand in the ‘scran’ line.
In 2012 I decided to start The Scran Line as a passion project as a way for me to express my creativity and love of baking. All this time later, it’s grown into much more than that, but is still something I’m incredibly passionate about and love.
Developing recipes, filming them into instructive video tutorials, recipe videos, photographing food and writing recipes is my full time job. I built a kitchen studio in our garage and that’s where I spend most of my day. I love it! I had some stinkers before this dream job, but I’m so thrilled to say this is my full time job. I owe my dream job status as a content creator to you! Yeah, that’s right. The person reading this page. The people who watch my videos one Instagram, Facebook and YouTube, who comment and like my work and just are all round amazing people who share the same passion as me! A love of delicious, nutritious easy recipes!
I’m so excited you stopped by to learn about me, please follow me on YouTube to watch my twice a week recipe videos, follow me on Instagram to see more of what I’m up to everyday, and if you’re on Facebook you can follow me there too!
