Nobelhart & Schmutzig

Every Thursday, we whip up our very own butter from 10 kilos of sour double cream delivered to us by David Peacock from Erdhof Seewalde. David’s cattle belong to the “Angler Rotvieh” breed, a particularly rare and old breed which – thanks to the high fat content of its milk – is also known as the “German butter cow.” This leaves us with about three liters of buttermilk each week, so get it while supplies last!

Buttermilk isn’t just a refreshing drink but also a great ingredient to your home cooking. Reduce it to about half with a bit of butter for texture, add salt, and you’ll end up with a deliciously creamy and slightly tangy sauce, which works perfectly with blanched onions or fresh green vegetables.

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.
