Nathan, a Wiradjuri man, was raised by a single mum in housing commission and money was tight. The family relied on cheap ingredients like devon and pantry staples to stretch every last dollar. Nathan started cooking for his family from a young age and now works two jobs to feed his own family of eight on a single income. He rose to TikTok fame in September 2020 when he launched his cooking videos, which have been liked more than a million times. The popularity of his content saw TikTok partner with Lyons for NAIDOC Week in 2020, and his followers have continued to grow exponentially from there.
'The thing I like about Nathan's approach to food is that he genuinely loves to cook, and he manages to bring that joy and humour to the practical dishes he uses to feed his family. It's no wonder audiences love what he does.' -- Adam Liaw
