Chef Thony Yang

Thony Yang

Chef de Cuisine
When Thony Yang is asked to describe his life in one word, it comes to him easily: perseverance. The first member of his family to get a post-secondary education, he attended Schoolcraft College, then culinary school, where he graduated at the top of his class. After working with a renowned Chicago chef, Thony made his way back home to the Twin Cities to learn from Chef Gavin Kaysen at Spoon and Stable, Bellecour and Demi. He joined Four Seasons Hotel Minneapolis in 2022 and currently serves as Chef de Cuisine at Mara.

“You want to connect with the team that is prepping and serving your food. That type of hospitality is invaluable.”
