Copenhagen: The Food (Part 2)

I hope everyone who celebrates Thanksgiving had a great day and weekend. For those who celebrate, you are probably saying to yourself, “I can’t think or talk about food because I’m still stuffed!” lol Well, the nordic food of Copenhagen is unique and definitely something to discuss.

The food was something I have never tried and couldn’t compare it to things that I have had before. The flavor combinations were indescribable. I had to read the menu while I ate just to remember what was in the dish.

The menus’ items ranged from simple dishes of very thinly sliced beef to more complicated dishes that combined sweet potatoes, flowers, and lobster bisque. They used simple, fresh ingredients to create memorable dishes. My palette was awakened to new tastes some of which I would love to experience again while others not so much.

The restaurants’ decor were just as interesting as the food. They were all very cozy and intimate spaces regardless of the size. I felt as if I was in someone’s home.Below are photos of inside one of the restaurants (Cafe Norden) and a few of the dishes from Salt.

#FITip: Get to learn about a culture through its food. It is a way to inspire your palette and open your mind to new ways of cooking.

Copenhagen: The City (Part 1)

If you had a weekend to go anywhere, where would you go? My boyfriend and I were faced with this decision months ago  and was able to answer rather quickly…Copenhagen! Why? There was an amazing flight deal that we couldn’t resist. We also love discovering new places so it worked out since we hadn’t yet explored Copenhagen.

Copenhagen is such a charming city. The city felt so familiar. It’s an intriguing place with elements from cities such as London, Munich, and Paris and yet it manages to maintain its identity through its unique art, parks, and food! By the end of our first day, we knew we would be back again. The flight is 6 hours long, which is just like flying out to Cali from NY. It is definitely a great weekend getaway (or longer) that would be worth your while!

Please enjoy the pics below from various parts of the city!

#FITip: Seek out new experiences and allow yourself to “get lost” . This helps you to reconnect with your inner child; and life becomes a beautiful adventure.

Millbrook Vineyards and Winery

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year! It’s a time to witness the changing of the leaves, cook stews and soups, and partake in many Fall festivities that happen in the New York area.

I recently took a day trip with some friends to the Millbrook Vineyards and Winery, which is located in Hudson River Valley. It was absolutely breathtaking! One can see the Catskills mountains in the distance and the weather was especially nice that day so we were able to sit outside and bask in the sun.

The Millbrook Winery produces both red and white wines. They have award-winning Rieslings. Although their Reislings are good, I actually prefered their 2013 Hunt Country Red wine. It was delicious….and this is coming from someone who loves white wines! This is definitely a place to visit! See more pictures below.
