Chive oil

Nobelhart & Schmutzig

Chives are a true kitchen all rounder – and can help lower high blood pressure, too! We mix up a good amount of fresh chives with a pinch of salt, rapseed oil from Fläminger Genussland and then strain the mixture through a fine cloth. The oil captures chives’ spring-like, ethereal aroma without the spicyness.

250ml bottle

Alternatively, you can try our chive mayo:


1 egg
150 ml chive oil
1 pinch Luisenhall salt
1 dash Apple vinegar or lemon juice
1 teaspoon mustard


Put the egg, mustard and salt into a large glass and briefly blend it all up with a hand blender, then dribble in the chive oil as you continue blending. Of course you can also use a whisk if you’re feeling particularly energetic.

You can use the chive mayo as a dipping for raw vegetables sticks, as a condiment to boiled meat as for example “Tafelspitz”, or simply as a base for a creamy dressing for your salad. It can also replace regular mayo in your sandwich or add a little bit of spiciness to your fries.

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.
