I completely and unexpectedly fell in love with Copenhagen. The architecture, the people, the sustainability… A charming blend of the old and new, Copenhagen is truly one of the gems of Europe.

Boy at fish market in CopenhagenHome to the world’s best restaurant, noma, located in downtown Christianshavn, Copenhagen is in the spotlight of the culinary world. The birthplace of Nordic gastronomy, current food culture in Copenhagen is focused on local produce and seasonal fare.

On a traveler’s budget, the closest I could get to an authentic taste of Copenhagen was the new food market, Torvehallerne. From the sleek design to the excellent quality of the food, this upscale covered market feels perfectly nordic.

Two symmetrical glass and steel pavilions house food stalls that sell a range of fresh food, as well as take-away items and specialty products. From the various herrings at Fiskerikajen to the traditional open-faced sandwiches at Hallernes Smørrebrød, one can sample quite a bit of the traditional, local fare. It isn’t just Danish food though. With over 60 vendors in the market, one can find delicacies from near and far.

Torvehallerne is an excellent option for lunch. Many of the stalls have small eating areas with a couple of barstools. If you’re lucky enough to go on a sunny day, you can enjoy your food outside at the picnic tables. I was able to grab a glass of bubbly at the cava bar outside and people watch – a perfect way to spend the afternoon in Copenhagen!

For the third installment of our Chef Series, I am so excited to introduce the charming Marlon Alexander, a personal chef who has worked for some of the biggest names in show biz including Kiss, Rod Stewart and Christina Aguilera. I first met Marlon at a charity event, where a private dinner catered by him was auctioned off for a cool $14,000 (by the way, two of those dinners sold that night). Between his charisma, fascinating stories of the rich and famous, and delicious food, it’s easy to see why.

Truffle Butter

Truffle butter is a great way to preserve the aroma of truffles. Chefs recommend using truffle within five days or so. Aside from freezing it, making truffle butter is a good method to preserve the flavor. But, let’s be real… ain't no way truffle butter will last more than a few days in anyone’s fridge!!
