Daily Dining at Home: Our Unique Private Chef Services
Want the luxury of a Miami area private chef for daily meals at home but don’t want the intrusion on your privacy or personal life that typically comes with a private chef cooking in your home?
Our weekly personalized chef services offer you the opportunity to indulge in elegant dining, with the convenience of delivery. We prepare your fully customized gourmet dishes in our own state-of-the art commercial kitchen and deliver them fresh to you, multiple times per week.
Every meal, hand-crafted just for you, 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 have been serving individuals and families in South Florida since 2006. We are also one of the only private chef services in Miami that has the culinary knowledge and extensive experience to help you navigate medical issues, food allergies, and health goals.

How Our Private Chef Services Work
From booking to menu planning to the day of your private chef service, we provide the ultimate, personalized experience.
Make hosting easy with a private chef from The Pickled Beet. We handle all the food-related details. You get to focus on your guests and just enjoy your dinner party or other gathering!
BOOK YOUR SERVICES
First, we’ll ask you to fill out a short private chef catering form, so we can learn more about your occasion or event, special dietary needs, number of guests, etc. Then we’ll schedule a consultation call to learn more and discuss your event and desired menu.
A CUSTOM PRIVATE CHEF MENU
Next, we’ll custom-design a menu with you that fits your vision and will rival any 5-star restaurant. Your guests will be impressed with the flavors, presentation, and attention to details.
PREPARATION, PRESENTATION, AND CLEAN UP
Be a guest at your own party as we take care of everything – from planning to shopping, cooking, serving, and kitchen cleanup.
A few hours before your in-home chef experience, your private chef team will arrive and begin preparing the agreed upon menu. We’ll also attend to other details as planned, including table settings and wine pairings.
We will serve each course, with meticulous plating and Michelin star-level innovative flavor profiles. Our chefs are artists and masters of their craft, so each dish will look as good as it tastes.
Of course, we’ll accommodate each and every guest’s food preferences, allergies, or sensitivities so everyone can simply relax and enjoy their time together.
In addition to cooking, serving, and attending to your guests, our private chef services team will clean up and leave your kitchen spotless. All you have to do is relax and enjoy your guests’ company. We will take care of everything! And yes, if you prefer to watch your private chef in action, that’s ok too.
Prefer Off-Site Preparation and Drop Off for Your Event or Guests?
Many of our clients – especially for occasions like Mother’s Day Brunch, a special meal for AirBnB guests, or a business meeting – prefer we create their menu in our commercial kitchen and drop off the prepared meal, dessert, and/or hors d’oeuvres.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a personal and a private chef?
While the terms “personal chef” and “private chef” are often used interchangeably, the general distinction is that personal chefs typically serve many clients while a private chef is usually employed by a single client or household.
Personal chefs may cook meals at the clients’ homes or in their own professional kitchen, and then deliver the meals to the clients’ residences. Private chefs typically work in the client’s residence, either in a dedicated kitchen or as part of the household staff.
At The Pickled Beet, we provide in-home private chef catering for dinner parties, special occasions, business meetings, retreats, or vacationers. We also provide gourmet personal chef services for daily in-home dining that pair the luxury of a private chef with the convenience (and privacy) of delivery. For all of our culinary services, we provide a level of personalization – including the accommodation of food allergies and special dietary needs – that is unmatched in the Miami area.
What if I need a Miami private chef for a last minute event or party?
The most successful events require meticulous planning well ahead of time to attend to every detail. We recommend contacting us 6-8 weeks prior to your event.
I just found out that my spouse invited work colleagues to dinner this weekend. Can you help?
We’re normally booked months in advance, but please reach out. If we have a chef available, we can send a private chef to your home or, alternatively, we may be able to provide drop-off service for a late request. We’d prepare the dishes in our commercial kitchen and deliver with easy instructions for you to heat and serve.
Who will be providing my private chef services?
Your private chef services will be provided by one of our professional chefs on staff at The Pickled Beet and, depending on the size of your gathering, additional team members to prep and clean. Our chef team averages close to 20 years of professional experience, and each is skilled, adept at a wide range of cuisines, and passionate about their craft.
Do you have Miami private chef catering menus I have to choose from?
Every private chef service is 100% personalized, which means that we’ll create a custom menu with you just for your event. However, we do have menu ideas to help with ideas and inspiration.
