The Skinny Beet Is...

a husband and wife cooking duo who started a company because they wanted to share their passion for cooking by creating completely customizable meals and events to suit any taste. Relying heavily on global flavors from their world travels, the ingredients are responsibly sourced, thoughtfully prepared, and presented in a way that is both creative and approachable. With over 10 years of combined professional cooking experience, Katie and Richard pride themselves on providing quality dishes and exceptional service for fair prices. Both are professionally trained and serve safe certified and very experienced creating meals based around food allergies and dietary restrictions. 

In addition to private cooking, we also offer private cooking classes. These are a perfect alternative to a night out. It can be for any number of people and is completely tailored to your tastes and are as hands on as you want them to be. We help create the menu, do all of the shopping and show up with the groceries and recipes. 

We also cater weddings and we tend to think of ourselves as the caterer for the couple that wants something unique and a little different than your average chicken, fish or vegetarian option. We like to get to know our couples and work with them on planning their day by creating a menu that is completely catered to their tastes, which creates a lasting and memorable experience.

Our food and philosophy

Our food and philosophy


We cook the way we like to eat, with lots of bold flavors inspired by global influences. We cook nutritionally thoughtful meals that combine an abundance of fresh vegetables and fruits as well as wholesome grains and proteins. We love cooking anything from your classic homestyle lasagna all the way to an elegant multi-course meal and everything in between. Our food is meant to excite and interest, without straying too far from the comfort zone. We get the inspiration for our dishes from our travels both domestically and abroad and we spend a lot of time perfecting our craft and developing all of our recipes and dishes that are entirely customizable. We source all of our quality ingredients the day that we cook - meaning that the meals we prepare are the freshest. For specific examples of what our clients are currently loving, please visit our "what's on the menu" page. We change this regularly so be sure to keep checking!

We cater to families and individuals of all ages as well as those that have strong preferences (and/or especially picky children) and we have experience working with various dietary restrictions and allergies. 

 

What our clients have had to say about our food and our services...

"I hired The Skinny Beet to give my wife and I some cooking lessons for my wife's birthday. My wife and I are both vegan and I thought that might make these chefs, (one of which writes Boston Burger Blog) cringe but they were so excited! Not only did we learn some great recipes for appetizers and entrees but it also gave me and my wife some much needed kitchen confidence." - Dylan

"Our guests were raving about the food, and they're a tough crowd! With your help, we were actually able to enjoy ourselves at our party. We also really enjoyed the leftovers..." - Jocelyn

"I recently had The Skinny Beet cater a party I had.  Richard and Katie offered the most delicious and bountiful menu within my price range. They worked with me to be sure my menu satisfied both my palate and my pocketbook." - Sandra
