New Orleans native Jolene Mannina has played a pivotal role in boosting Las Vegas' local food culture. She's worked in some of the city's most popular restaurants, operated a beloved food truck, organized countless events and food festivals and even turned one of them, the Back of House Brawl, into a TV show. Now she's vice president of culinary partnerships at Urban Seed, a potentially game-changing Vegas farming project, where she's connecting the Valley's most talented chefs and restaurateurs with a sustainable and important mission.
