    Best Food Ever

    I cannot say enough great things about Edward and his team at the French Picnic. We were BLOWN away by the food. My guests constantly tell me it was the best food they've ever had. I am truly honored that we had the French Picnic team a part of our big day. You never know what you are going to get when choosing vendors - I am here to tell you, you will NOT regret choosing this crew. Edward is a food genius! Make sure you get a to go bride and groom plate so you don't miss out while chatting with your guests!

    French Picnic made our wedding so delicious and perfect!

    I could not more highly recommend Edward and his staff from French Picnic. Our wedding was unbelievably meaningful and perfect, and that was because Ed created the most beautiful meal, served hot to 200 guests who are still raving about how delicious it all was. From our first phone call, we knew we had found someone special. Ed is so warm and professional, and set us all at ease during what can be a stressful, though exciting time. He worked closely with our family, accommodated our dietary needs, visited our venue several times to prepare, and sourced local and fresh ingredients to create the most memorable meal. Tender steak! Slow roasted tomatoes! Lemony asparagus! Juicy chicken! Polenta and shrimp! I still dream about that lovely dinner. On the big day, it all seemed so effortless. Our wedding was decadent beyond our dreams, but still very much well within a reasonable budget. Ed worked with us to create something amazing. We had plenty of foodies in attendance that night who are still raving that it was the best wedding food they've ever had, and I have to agree. Do yourselves a favor and give French Picnic a call!
