The 2018 Lake Street Dumpling Tour! by John Yuccas

This past Saturday was the 2018 Lake Street Dumpling Tour that took place at over 14 locations up and down Lake Street in Minneapolis. The diversity of vendors and offerings were incredible. I didn't get to every location, but the ones I was able to get to were buzzing with participants excited to try the next momo, samosa, sambusa, empanada, tiropita, gyoza, or dumpling! The weather wasn't the most cooperative, but no one seemed to mind! If I learned one thing in preparation for the next festival I attend, it will be to skip breakfast.



Special thanks to the Lake Street Council for bringing me on board to capture the event and for organizing it in the first place. Lucky for you, you don't have to wait for the next Lake Street Dumpling tour to visit the participants who make great food weekly!

Event Photography: Seward Co-op Creamery Farm to Table Dinner by John Yuccas

Events are a really fun way for restaurants and suppliers to showcase their skills and offerings through strategic execution. April 17th, the Seward Co-op Creamery in partnership with Dream of Wild Health put on a ticketed three course dinner with dessert. It was incredible, and I felt honored to capture the different aspects of the event.

I attempted to capture as many aspects of the event as possible: the preparation, the dishes, and the guest experience. I hope I came close to showcasing the experience I saw everyone having:

This plated event was so much fun to partake in. If you are interested in having your own event photographed, please contact me at to discuss the details. 

I would highly recommend buying tickets early for Seward's next dinner if this type of experience interests you! This event sold out, and rightfully so.
