With the goal of bringing people together, providing memorable experiences and celebrating each season, Mara and Four Seasons Hotel Minneapolis announce a new series: Mara in Season, presented by RBC Wealth Management. Taking place four times per year, each event features a surprise Hotel experience followed by a collaborative, multi-course tasting menu at Mara where Chef Gavin Kaysen and his team cook with a renowned visiting chef from our open kitchen.

In the inaugural series, Chef Kaysen and team will collaborate with Greg Vernick for A Spring’s Table, Nancy Silverton for A Summer’s Table and Tyler Florence for An Autumn’s Table. These events, made possible in part by Steelite International, follow A Winter’s Table, which took place on February 1, 2024.

A portion of the proceeds will be directed toward local business leader Houston White and his cultural impact work to advance diversity, equity and belonging.

“I am thrilled to be creating a dinner series at Mara, especially one that is tied to the seasons,” says Chef Kaysen. “One of the most exciting ways to cook is by way of how nature is unfolding, and this offering will showcase that alongside the unique personality of each chef. Greg, Nancy and Tyler are not only friends, but incredible chefs who have created magic in their own kitchens. Now, they bring it to us at Mara and in Minneapolis.”

Houston White

Before Mara and Four Seasons Hotel Minneapolis opened, the Hotel formed a partnership with White based on shared values and began creating Cultural Collisions: events and experiences that invite people to make new connections, learn from one another and build bridges. This effort kicked off with recruitment-focused open houses in early 2022, continues with Mara in Season and will extend to rooftop events this summer.
