Hello! My name is Keyla Nogueira Cook and I am the Head Chef & Co-Owner of Casa Brasil in Highland Park. In 2014 I started sharing the flavors of my home country’s cuisine with Pittsburgh through culinary explorations with a focus on home style traditional cooking based on family recipes. I bring to the table dishes and comfort food that represent Brazilian culture. I like to call myself  a“chefpreneur” (chef + entrepreneur), because “I work just as hard on the business as the food, and there is not one without the other”.
