Dish Up! - My Week 15 in Review

This is Dish Up! - My Week in Review, a weekly look at my food-obsessed life. It's been a super busy few days, but I've been loving it. I did a photo shoot with the southern-fusion restaurant, Saison in Jackson ward and helped shoot a wedding for the first time. Although I didn't know the couple, I was completely caught up in their special day (I may or may not have gotten a little teary-eyed).   

Saison has gained a reputation for it's amazing hand-crafted cocktails.

Our sushi lunch was followed by a sukiyaki dinner - a beef hotpot filled with udon noodles, tofu, and vegetables. This dish is always enjoyed communally, which makes it taste even better.
