Kaitlyn C. Roberts

Board Member

Kaitlyn grew up predominately in Rhode Island, but her love affair with food first began in her Grandfather's kitchen in upstate NY, breaking down steaks and bathing everything in butter in his private kitchen he built outside the home so her grandmother wouldn't "bother him."

Roberts completed her formal culinary education in 2006 at Apicius Culinary Institute in Florence, Italy after receiving a B.A. in English and Communications from Wofford College, in South Carolina. She continued to work with Apicius, cooking for the James Beard House in 2007.

Roberts holds an advanced degree from London's Wine & Spirits Education Trust Program and staged with executive Chef Deb Morgan Bennett of Kripalu in the Bershires in 2012. Roberts continues to lead luxury, culinary and wine tours for groups of curios foodies annually, back to Italy with her friend and business partner, Jessica Granatiero.

Roberts founded Easy Entertaining Inc. in 2006 at the age of 23, and has grown the company organically into a seven figure revenue earning company with an emphasis on family first, and a diverse workforce, focused on placing women and people of color and diverse backgrounds in positions of leadership. Today the company has over 45 employees, all of whom, Kait would describe as family.

In 2012, she took her ownership of her first event venue, The Cafe at Easy Entertaining Inc. In 2019, she took control of her second, the Atrium of Rising Sun Mills.

Kait is a mom to twin two year old's, Madelyn & Myles, and resides with her husband Jameson, in Barrington, RI. They enjoy making sushi, wood fired pizza, paddle boarding, beach hikes, and drinking wine... lots of wine.
