Chili paste

Nobelhart & Schmutzig

“Holy shit,”– in a liberal translation – is what our Micha said to Judith when she asked what our brand new chili paste was like. He wasn’t just referring to its level of heat and spice either. No, what’s truly astounding is the array of fruity flavours in this great little concoction. 

We’ve made sure to include quite a few chili varieties, such as Taeyang medium, Turuncu spiral and De Cayenne, all of which are grown by Jens Wylegalla at his Ahrensdorfer Kräuterwelten. Add to that a bit of tomato and salt and off it goes into the blender. And that’s all, really! This makes for an incredibly pure product that cannot really be assigned to any particular national cuisine. It’s just incredibly versatile and you’ll love using it wherever you need that little bit of extra spice.

Great with fried green veggies, in sauces, dressings… you know the drill. Also be sure to try it in this chickpea stew or a good puttanesca. (Recipes in German)

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.
