Our New Pastry Chef
In Part 7 of our Kitchen 919 introduction we’re very excited to announce we have a new pastry chef, Kaitlyn Rodabaugh. She’s had a passion of baking since she was young and can’t wait to share what she loves with all of you!
At the age of 17, she went to Johnson and Wales University in Rhode Island and was in their early enrollment program for Baking and Pastry Arts that only allowed 6 students into that program.
After a year at JWU, she decided to move closer to home and go to The Culinary Institute of America and graduated in there Baking and Pastry Arts program. She worked at the only Forbes 5 Star Ski Lodge in Utah called, Stein Eriksen Lodge as their seasonal Pastry cook and learned from one of the best Pastry chefs named Curtis Cameron, who is very creative with chocolate. During the Sundance Film Festival, she worked during their first day of the festival which is called, ‘”The Artist Table” where she provided different modern desserts through out the event.
After her adventure in Utah in 2014, she started working at the first farm brewery, Roosterfish Brewery as their Pastry chef where she learned how to make breads with spent grain as well combined beer, malt, etc in desserts. Her extensive training, skill, and creativity will shine at Kitchen 919. This past year, she decided to move to East Tennessee to pursue more in the Pastry world in the Knoxville area. Stay tuned to this email each Saturday for more.
