Keyla Nogueira Cook is a mother and “a chefpreneur” (chef + entrepreneur). Native to Brazil, she has been cooking since she was 7 years old and moved to the US in 2006, settling in Pittsburgh in 2012. Her childhood played a major role in her gastronomic and business journey, leading her to start her first business in the city in 2014. She started cooking professionally and since then has been sharing the flavors of Brazil with Pittsburgh in many different ways while creating a following by curating private dinners and events, catering and community engagements.
Tim Guthrie is an MC, Producer, DJ and Promoter who was born and raised in the Pittsburgh region. After graduating from Taylor Allderdice High School in 1992 he spent the next decade in the District of Columbia after a brief 3 semester “life defining” stint at Norfolk State University. Upon his return to Pittsburgh in the early 2000’s, Guthrie spent the first few years back getting reacquainted with the music scene of that time. In 2004 he became co-owner of Shadow Lounge and later co-founded Ava Lounge in 2006 in the heart of East Liberty. Here he would begin to understand the importance of a business that is grounded in the community and for the community. Guthrie celebrated 20 years of DJing this year and continues to provide the area with sounds from around the world, but it was his love for Brazilian music that led him to meet his current business partner Keyla and eventually start this next chapter at Casa Brasil.
