Barbecue sauce

Nobelhart & Schmutzig

In a way, we’re not doing this little gem justice by calling it a barbecue sauce. Sure, with the fruitiness of ripe tomatoes, the tangy spice of Olaf Schnelle’s fermented chillis, the acidity of white wine, the savoury goodness of garlic, celery and onions and the smokey aromas of our homemade smoked oil, this sauce practically begs for a place at your summer barbecue. Yet, it’s much more versatile than that. Because it’s neither sweet nor overpowering, it works beautifully with lightly grilled vegetables or tender fish. It also makes for a great pasta sauce to which you can add basically whatever you like. If anything, this is a true multipurpose condiment/base inviting you to get experimental in the kitchen.

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.
