Ashanti Young

Chef de Cuisine

At MKT Restaurant-Bar, Ashanti’s creativity shines on the menu as she leads the culinary team in preparing California cuisine using regional seafood and meat. Ashanti joined the hotel from Michael Mina in San Francisco where she was the Executive Sous Chef. No stranger to Four Seasons, Ashanti worked in Four Seasons Hotel Washington D.C. at Bourbon Steak House and in Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore at Wit and Wisdom, both restaurants operated by Michael Mina Restaurant Group. Ashanti was so impressed by the Four Seasons culture and how we value our employees that she made it a personal goal to one day be a Four Seasons employee. In her spare time Ashanti enjoys cycling, exploring farmer's markets; and spending time with friends and her dog, Nikko.
