Chef Beca Tuinei hails from Los Angeles, CA, where she worked in a production studio during the early stages of her career and won a Grammy Award for assisting with the production of Outkast’s Hey-Ya! She then moved on to the culinary realm and completed her formal Chef-training in Las Vegas where she proudly earned her Associates Degree in Culinary Arts at Le Cordon Bleu, while also working at the critically acclaimed Wynn and Encore Resorts. She spent over seven years stationed as a Head Chef in various restaurants throughout the two world-class properties, cooking alongside a myriad of renowned chefs, and honing her craft in a wide variety of culinary genres-- from rustic Italian and steakhouse, to French fine dining. A mother first and foremost, when Chef Beca had the opportunity to move her talent and her family to Connecticut, she seized it. In West Hartford she discovered great schools, a welcoming foodie community and experienced Chef’s like Billy Grant to cook alongside at Grant’s Restaurant in West Hartford. Now, Chef Beca is branching out into her latest venture: Nala’s Kitchen LLC. As the Executive Chef at Nala’s she artfully converts high-calorie comfort foods into healthy and enjoyable meals at-the-ready for busy families like her own.
Vanessa Sena also hails from California, which is where she and Chef Beca first became acquainted. With a keen interest in business and an acumen for logistics, Vanessa worked in event and party-planning for several years, eventually launching her own business in the field. After nearly a decade of on-the-job training she decided to trade in her organizational clip-board for a piping bag, enrolling at the Epicurean School of Culinary Arts, in Los Angeles, CA where she focused on Pastry. In the confectioner’s arena she held positions working for Jose Andres at Bazaar Meat, in Las Vegas and for Dominique Ansel Bakery and 189, in Los Angeles. She was Head of the pastry team at Hotel Irvine when Chef Beca asked her to team up and run the operations for Nala’s. Vanessa couldn’t refuse her long-standing friend and culinary confidant, nor could she shake her penchant for business strategy. The opportunity to Co-own and Operate Nala’s Kitchen LLC allows Vanessa to cross-pollinate her love of business strategy with her passion for culinary arts.
