About Chef Hanis Cavin

Born and raised in San Diego, Hanis Cavin is the Chef and owner of Carnitas' Snack Shack and is known nationally for his culinary talents. Early on, Hanis’ home economics teacher told him that he had a talent that should not be wasted. Inspired by his teacher’s advice, Hanis attended the New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, Vermont.

After school, Hanis began to polish his skills at the American Seasons Restaurant in Nantucket. But his love for San Diego — and warm weather — brought him back to the West Coast, where he worked at a number of notable restaurants throughout San Diego as an Executive Chef and Chef de Cuisine. In 2009, Chef Hanis earned the honorable award of "Chef of the Year" from the California Restaurant Association. Shortly after that he was inducted into the San Diego Home/Garden’s “Chef’s Hall of Fame”. Other accomplishments include being featured on the Travel Channel’s “Food Paradise” and being responsible for the pilot of “Taco Trip” with Aaron Sanchez.
