ABOUT LES, The Artist.
After 6 years of owning and operating two businesses in South Florida (an upscale children's boutique and Party Warehouse Venue) Les moved to Fernandina Beach, FL with her husband, Jorge, and daughter, Nina-Simone on 10.10.2010. To this very day, Les and Jorge agree it was the best decision of their lives! The opportunity to raise their only daughter in a small close-knit community was something they longed for and found it in Nassau County.
Les is a first generation Cuban-Amerian with hustle, perseverance, and determination deeply ingrained in her core. With an eclectic heritage that spans Spain (Basque Country/Canary Islands), Lebanon, Syria, and Italy, there's no doubt her love of food, entertaining, and feeding others runs deep. As a creative soul, Les has trained in the arts since she was a child - Visual Arts, Dance, Theatre Performance, and in college majored in Photography and Film/Television Production.
Her resume is as diverse as her heritage.
Les gathered all her skills and experience along with her love of art and entertainment to create LUXE PICNICS by Les , A Luxury Picnic & Grazings Co.
LUXE PICNICS by Les has been proudly serving Nassau County Florida and surrounding areas since 2021, creating luxury Bohemian-style picnics and offering artistically creative grazing/charcuterie services from catering to teaching grazing board building workshops.
Luxe Picnics by Les is a proud member of The Nassau County Chamber of Commerce and was recently honored with a double nomination for 2022 Small Business of the Year & Business Leader of the Year.
With the help and support of her parents, husband and daughter, Les is able to provide her luxury picnic services and spread joy with her special gift of entertaining and turning cured meats and artisan cheese into food art!
