Asparagus soup

Nobelhart & Schmutzig

This cream of asparagus soup is made with Thomas Syring’s organic asparagus from Beelitz. Even though asparagus soup is a dime a dozen in early spring, you’ll be hard-pressed to find one that is this intense. That’s thanks to the fact that our Nobelhart version contains 50% asparagus, we just add a little butter, onions as well as our favourite cream from Erdhof Seewalde. A dash of our homemade blackcurrant wood oil adds fragrance and complexity.

Store it in a cool, dark place and you’ll be able to bring memories of springtime even into the cold and dark season.

Idea

Place on a low heat and gently heat up the soup. If you fancy more blackcurrant wood aroma, why not add an extra string to your bowl? (Be sure to order your own little bottle of blackcurrant wood oil.)

If asparagus is in season as you get ready to enjoy your soup, why not chop up some asparagus and briefly fry it in butter before adding it into your soup for a more substantial meal? Croutons with garlic also work really well, though.

Nobelhart & Schmutzig
If Billy is to be believed, Nobelhart und Schmutzig only exists so that he can easily get his hands on the best food the Berlin and Brandenburg region has to offer. And so he can help himself to any of the 1308 different wines stored in our lovingly curated cellar….  But all joking aside, the motto at Nobelhart is:

Putting Local Food Back in Your Hands!

Nobelhart & Schmutzig has been “vocally local” from the start. Since first opening our doors in February 2015, we have grown fearlessly into our current role as Germany’s most political restaurant. This involves a conscious decision to shift the focus squarely onto the people, all from the greater Berlin region, who produce our raw ingredients. This self-imposed renunciation of products from afar, including lemons, tuna and chocolate, is the foundation of our eatery’s distinctive signature. There’s more at play here than just culinary aesthetics. Serving this philosophy also intrinsically means promoting environmental and economic sustainability for the people working with the bountiful nature in and around Berlin. It also involves pride in a sense act, even if too few understand it as such. And the ordinary shopping list very much serves as the stage for this modern brand of politics.  In addition to supporting raw ingredient producers from the Berlin region, Nobelhart & Schmutzig works closely with Die Gemeinschaft to establish a new and better eating culture for all. Good, healthy food should provide a future, perspectives and identity for the people who produce it and the companies that transform raw ingredients into fine products.
