ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

By Lindsay Peyton

There’s something surprisingly – and refreshingly – humble about chef Cameron Hanin.

Even though he was named Seattle Rising Star Chef in 2015 and has paid his dues in some of the top kitchens in the country, he still has an air of comfortable familiarity.

And when he takes a break from preparing for the dinner service at West Seattle’s Ma’ono to plop down for an interview, it feels like talking to an old friend, one who will give you a hard time if you ask a dumb question or are dating the wrong guy, but one who would just as surely lend you a hand if you were ever in trouble.

“I like careful cooking,” he said. “It could be three things on the plate with no modern techniques or it could be a real show-stopper, as long as it’s cooked with care, cooked with love.”
