Customized Personal Chef Services in the Miami Area
Customized Personal Chef Services in the Miami Area.
At The Pickled Beet®, every dish starts with you.
Luxury Personal Chef Services
Whether you live in South Florida year-round, split your time between homes, or visit for vacations or medical treatments, it can be challenging to find fresh, quality meals that truly fit your tastes, lifestyle, and dietary requirements. Assembly-line meal services abound, but they lack the high standards, flavor profiles, and customization you need. Daily, in-home chefs are an option, but they can be intrusive on your privacy and personal life.
At The Pickled Beet, we have provided personalized culinary services since 2006, and we are the most experienced and accommodating personal chef service in the Miami area. Our professional chefs specialize in preparing fresh, flavorful dishes – made with organic, premium, whole food ingredients – that are 100% tailored to your specific needs and preferences.
Our award-winning personal chef services include:
- Weekly personalized chef services, accommodating each family member, no matter their dietary needs or preferences
- Private chef experiences
- Personalized catering services
- Luxury in-flight catering
WHAT MAKES OUR PERSONAL CHEF SERVICES SO DIFFERENT?
During our 17 years in business, we have seen the power of good food serving as good medicine. We specialize in working with clients who value the role food plays in fighting disease, maintaining wellness, and averting potential health issues.
Our recipe for success is the right blend of experienced chefs, a 100% personalized approach, and fresh, organic, premium ingredients. Every dish starts with freshly harvested ingredients from organic farmers, fish that was caught last night by local South Florida fishermen, and grass-fed beef and lamb flown in from small American family ranches. We also operate out of our very own, dedicated gluten-free commercial kitchen.
100% Personalized Dishes and Menus
We customize every meal and menu, for each family member. When we say 100% personalized chef services, we mean it.
Skilled, Experienced, Professional Chefs
Our talented team of chefs have decades of experience in crafting gourmet meals across a wide variety of cuisines.
Fresh, Whole, Premium, Nutrient-Dense Ingredients
We use organic poultry and produce, grass-fed beef and lamb, wild-caught seafood, and Berkshire pork.
Food Allergy and Dietary Needs Specialists
Since 2006, we have specialized in crafting delicious meals, no matter the food allergies or dietary restrictions.
A Repertoire of 3,000+ Tested Recipes
We prepare dishes from around the world and don’t repeat an entrée within 3 months, unless requested to do so.
Real People, Real Chefs, and We Make It Real Easy
Clients get to talk or email directly with their lead chef. And we make it easy to get started by not requiring a contract.

What Special Dietary Needs and Food Allergies Can Our Personal Chefs Accommodate?
New clients at The Pickled Beet are often surprised to learn that no food issues or special requests phase us. Rather than running from these “challenges,” as many chefs do, we embrace them. And we have since 2006. Why? Because we firmly believe no one should have to live without delicious food.
Whole Food Plant-Based
Ready to Hire a Personal Chef? Here’s How Our Process Works
Our process starts with you filling out our food questionnaire. Next, we’ll schedule a consultation call.
Based on your consult, we will design your personalized menu plan and present it to you for review.
Our chefs will cook for you 2-3 times per week in our kitchen and deliver fresh meals on scheduled days
STEP 1: CONSULT
To get started, fill out our food questionnaire, so we can learn more about your unique preferences, likes and dislikes, food allergies, sensitivities, dietary requirements, medical diagnoses, and goals. Next, we’ll schedule a consultation call to review your questionnaire, answer any questions, and learn more.
We cannot provide a proposal until we have completed this step. Our pricing includes chef services, packaging and delivery + grocery/ingredient costs.
STEP 2: PLAN
Based on your food questionnaire and consultation, we will design your personalized menu plan and present it to you for review. We’ll answer any questions, make any edits, then get final approval before ordering your fresh ingredients and preparing your customized dishes.
STEP 3: COOK
Based on your tailored plan, our chefs will cook for you 2 to 3 times per week in our off-site commercial kitchen. On your scheduled days, we’ll prepare your fresh meals and package them in BPA-free oven-safe containers (labeled clearly, with easy heating instructions) and deliver to your location of choice in South Florida. We’ll discuss any feedback or new special requests and then create your next week’s personalized menu.
Who Uses Our Personal Chef Services?
Our clients enjoy the luxury of gourmet chef services combined with the convenience and privacy of delivery. They also value the link between good food and good health.
Typically, they fall into one or more of the categories below:
Those with Food Allergies, Sensitivities, and/or Autoimmune Disorders
Many of our clients come to us newly diagnosed with food allergies, autoimmune disorders, or other chronic issues. They may have been told by their doctor or nutritionist to try a Low FODMAP diet, avoid a long list of food allergens, try an elimination diet, eat a low cholesterol diet, or follow a specific regimen for ALS, RA, Hashimoto’s, MS, Celiac disease, or others.
If you need to make major changes to your diet but don’t want to face a life of tasteless food, you’re in the right place. The Pickled Beet is an experienced culinary partner who will help take the confusion and stress out of any special diet.
Eating for Health and Wellness
Others come to us because they value quality cuisine and either want to maintain their health or prevent issues that would impact it.
From single jet setters to bustling families to empty nesters, our clients appreciate our level of service and how we accommodate those with busy lives, even those who have schedules that may change from week-to-week.
Recovering from Illness or Surgery
Whether recovering from a serious illness or recent surgery, we help those who are in the recovery stage. Our team can consult with your health care professional to create the best diet to encourage optimal healing.
Visiting South Florida for Medical Treatments
South Florida is home to many groundbreaking medical treatment centers, such as those for ALS, cancer treatment, and organ transplantation. For those traveling from out of state for treatment, we remove the stress of finding the right meals to accommodate their dietary restrictions. Our team hand-delivers fresh, customized dishes right to each client’s hotel, vacation home, or AirBnb when they are in town.
For those looking to lose weight or maintain their weight, we can help you enjoy delicious food and find success on your journey.
Pregnant or Postpartum

We can accommodate the strict dietary needs of professional and semi-professional athletes as well as work with any work and travel schedule, no matter how tricky it may seem. We are happy to consult with your personal trainer or nutritionist to create a meal plan for optimal performance. We also serve visiting athletes who are in South Florida for the off-season or to train in the area.
WHY THE PICKLED BEET?

We take the time to listen, understand, and formulate 100% personalized menus and dishes, for each family member.
Eating well isn’t an expense, it’s an investment in a healthy future.
Most families have 7 recipes in their repertoire – we have 3,000.
When you remove inflammatory foods from your diet, you’ll lose weight without counting calories.
Your standards are high. Ours are too.
How Our Personal Chef Pricing Works
Everything about our service is personalized for each client, including the number of meals we prepare each week, which meals we prepare (breakfast? lunch? dinner? more?), and whether each family member needs a unique menu or not.
Provided below are a few sample options. Since your weekly menu is completely customized down to the grocery selections, food restrictions, and delivery range, we can’t provide your quote without learning more about and discussing your specific needs.
As a general rule, expect your meals to cost what you’d expect to pay in a high-end restaurant. The difference is that your meals are 100% customized and prepared using only fresh, organic ingredients and healthy cooking methods — not the way most restaurant meals are prepared. And you get to skip the traffic!
Please take 5 minutes to fill out our FOOD QUESTIONNAIRE and then schedule your free consultation with our executive chef, so we can give you an accurate price quote.

When will I get my food?
Meals are delivered in the afternoon from 12-6 depending on where you live.

Are the meals frozen?
No! In most cases, the meals are stored in your refrigerator. Many of them can be successfully frozen if that’s your preference.
What if I don’t like the food?

What’s the difference between a personal and private chef?
Personal chefs prepare food for a number of clients while private chefs typically are the full-time employee of one client.
