From our very first conversation with Chef JacQues, we instantly connected with him and he fully understood our vision for our wedding. When looking at his portfolio, we were captivated by his plating and elegance. His extreme professionalism, charisma, and talent made our decision to use his services so easy. Throughout our planning, Chef was very communicative, intentionally listened to our goals, and created the menu of our dreams for our wedding. He took time out of his personal schedule to come for a site visit, learn the venue, and asked thoughtful questions to ensure our day would run smoothly. His detailed timelines were appreciated by all of my vendors and gave me comfort in knowing I wouldn't have to think twice about anything on the day of the wedding. The food that we had at our wedding was truly the best meal I've ever had in my life. From the canapés to salad to our main course, every plate was put out on schedule, perfectly cooked (every bite of meat and fish was UNREAL), and plated like a work of art. Chef was incredibly accommodating for our vegan guest and made her a special plate that was just as incredible. Every guest at my wedding was absolutely blown away and is still talking about it a week later. This is a dinner we will NEVER forget. Chef's passion for cooking and lighthearted personality also added so much to our evening! Our guests loved watching him cook and appreciated the time he took to explain what was for each course and the intention behind his decisions. Not only was Chef amazing to work with, but his team was amazing! Everyone was highly professional and took care of every guests' needs as if they were the only one in the room. You can tell how much they all respect and adore Chef which speaks volumes to his leadership. I cannot wait to use Chef's services as often as possible for the rest of my life. I couldn't recommend him more if I tried! Look no further...I promise you will not regret it!

This was our first experience with a personal chef and THE EXPERIENCE WAS OUTSTANDING. The Chef assessed my expectations and he delivered. He quickly and patiently responded when I had questions, he thorughly explained food preparation techniques, and he offered excellent suggestions for my husband's 60th BD celebration. My husband and his 5 golf buddies were blown away with the professional services the Chef and his team provided. THE FOOD had all 6 of them licking their spoons.

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 6 - 10 guests • Dinner • Premium (high end ingredients) • Dessert • American - formal • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

From the first call to the hugs good-bye, Chef JacQues and his staff turned a small engagement celebration into an experience that my family will cherish for a lifetime. Though the truly exceptional cuisine was the main event, it was the joy and warmth and personal attention that he and his staff showed us that truly made the evening remarkable. Chef JacQues, Ben and Lamanda have a unique way of reading the room and designing their efforts to blend in seamlessly. With a lively game of Pictionary raging in close proximity, Chef Jacques and Ben somehow managed to prepare and beautifully plate a 5 course meal that would rival any Five Star restaurant in the world. And Lamanda took a folding table and chairs and created a tablescape that took my breath away. Impeccable service, professionalism and incredible food aside, they made us feel like we were the most important people in the world. A restorative, beautiful, delicious experience that I highly recommend - These people are seriously amazing. 100 stars plus more.

Chef created an amazing 4 course meal. Chef brought together a menu that incorporated my wants for the meal along with his expertise to create a perfect, tasty, memorable meal. Chef was efficient, fast, but precise and thorough. The presentation and knowledge of flavors were brought together from start to finish. Chef can elevate your next meal. Even a picky toddler enjoyed every course.

The chef and I have been planning for my family's vow renewal event for over 3 months in advance. He was accommodating and patient throughout the process even though many readjustment were made by my family. The dinner was not only amazingly delicious but also perfection. The team was extremely professional to ensure every guest from kids to adults are treated like a valued customer. In fact, my family and I highly recommending InGenious Elegance Cuisines and will definitely make a reservation with this them again next time we come down to Orlando. Thank you guys once again for such beautiful experience!
