About Us

A personalized wedding catering company in Portland, Maine, French Picnic is owned and run by veteran chef Edward Bondellio. Before launching his own catering company, Bondellio gained cooking experience from his Italian grandparents and working in top restaurants in Manhattan. One fact that remains constant through his cookery, aside from delicious taste, is understanding the value of quality ingredients. All this knowledge is encompassed when you choose French Picnic to cater your wedding!

French Picnic is a wedding only catering company that specializes in three courses, family-style dinners, and multiple vegetarian side dishes backed up with grilled and roasted meats and seafood. The cuisine is based on the Mediterranean basin but touches on the Middle and the Far East as well. In addition to hors d’oeuvres inspired by Paris or full meals off the coast of Nice, Bondellio also creates Italian, Asian and Thai dishes. He is more than happy to accommodate various kinds of dietary restrictions like lactose-free, gluten-free, vegan and more.

  • My wife had a grand vision of a beautiful family style meal at our wedding whereby everyone would be able to interact as they ate. We found French Picnic with a quick google search and didn’t even bother looking at other options. Once we spoke on the phone to Edward and how he spoke so eloquently about food, we were beyond excited. To say he exceeded our expectations is an understatement. Beyond just all of his staff and how friendly they were, the table settings were beautifully done, the food was perfect and everything my wife and I hoped it would be. We would recommend French Picnic ten times over if we could!
