Girl and The Kitchen

Media Relations: National & Local



Mila Furman, a private chef, recipe developer and a culinary influencer, formed a partnership with Mekky Media to accelerate the growth of her private chef and catering company Girl and the Kitchen. Located in the North Shore of the Chicagoland area, Mila asked Mekky Media to drive her brand awareness in the local area while also building her online presence as a culinary influencer nationally. 



In just over one year, Mekky Media secured 31 online placements for Mila, including spotlights on Buzzfeed, Real Simple, AllRecipes and Insider. Mekky Media also built Mila’s brand in the Chicagoland area, securing her 10 segments on television and 4 radio spots, emphasizing not only her delicious, simple recipes but also quick cooking tips and healthy lifestyle practices for families. 

Following Mekky’s successful campaign for Mila, her platform has continued to grow. Most recently, she was tapped for TBS’s Rat In the Kitchen.

Notable placements include: 

FOX32, CBS2, ABC7, WGN-AM, WLS-AM, WBBM-AAM, MSN, Insider, Buzzfeed, AllRecipes, Real Simple, RedBook, Daily Herald, Food & Wine, BizWomen, Daily North Shore, and more.
