KitchenFly is an in-home kitchen organization service that inspires and enables you to cook more.

Hello! I'm Emily. I started KitchenFly in 2017 when I got a text from a friend who was in tears over a failed attempt to make a steak on a weeknight. As a culinary school grad and professional cook, I often get those texts. But this one seemed extra S.O.S. "I'm coming over tomorrow with wine and five rib-eyes and we are doing steak drills," I said. 

But as soon as I got to her apartment, I realized the first step to helping her cook was to reset her kitchen. Unnecessary tools and cookware were cluttering drawers, making it hard to get to the tools she would need. The pantry didn't have the right weeknight cooking staples. A more efficient kitchen with the right equipment would save her so much time when cooking — and make it more enjoyable. 

In my roles as a food editor at Bon Appétit and BuzzFeed, I created hundreds of recipes, cooking guides, and how-to videosBut I realized none of them had really helped my friend learn to cook and make it a habit. Neither had her two-year subscription to a meal kit delivery service, apparentlyOther friends in critical life stages — new parents, newlyweds, and ambitious young professionals — are having exactly the same experience. 

Since that episode, I've dedicated myself to understanding the most effective way to transform someone's kitchen into a place that will encourage and enable them to cook. The mission of KitchenFly is to help people cook and feel at home in their kitchens. And if you ask my clients, they'll tell that it will change your life.

What Makes KitchenFly Different 

The KitchenFly method is based in real culinary expertise. I don't organize closets. I don't organize offices. I approach your kitchen with knowledge that I've built over ten years in the food industry — culinary school, recipe development, food styling, working with chefs, testing cookware, and covering trends. My goal isn't just to clean up your kitchen and give you a sense of order and space; I will empower you to cook more by offering personalized recommendations that fit your lifestyle. 

My kitchen is actually organized, which makes cooking so much easier! I’ve cooked SO much more since having Emily update my tiny kitchen space because preparation and cleanup are now drastically easier to manage.
— Ryan M., Long Island City, NY
We absolutely LOVE our kitchen now. Honestly it is so refreshing going home and opening drawers, everything is so organized — it’s amazing.
— Jenna, Brooklyn, NY
I recently moved into my own place for the first time, and after spending a few weeks boiling water in a non-stick frying pan, KitchenFly saved the day! Emily spent time studying photos of my existing kitchen, my tools, and their placement prior to our session, and gave me very specific ideas specifically tailored to my kitchen and lifestyle. Her ideas balanced practicality and affordability with small luxuries to turn my kitchen into a place I look forward to spending time.
— Samantha, video chat client, Dallas, TX
It was so fun and I learned so much! I feel like my cooking skills are majorly elevated already. Thank you for changing my life.
— Eric, Brooklyn, NY
The cooking lesson at the end was super helpful. After other lessons I haven’t been able to replicate what I learned. But Emily kept it simple and taught me so much in such a short time.
