The average salary for an executive chef here was reported at $101,400 -- not far from New York's $101,500 and about $14,000 more than salaries in Boston.

Pastry chefs in Florida didn't do badly either. With an average salary of $55,000, local pastry chefs were paid more in 2009 than pastry chefs in Massachusetts, California, and New York.
