It is asparagus time!

Nobelhart & Schmutzig

In our asparagus box you will find four delicious treats to turn into two signature Nobelhart & Schmutzig asparagus classics. Each portion is enough for four people.
First, of course, you’ll need fresh asparagus, which you’re best off buying from your local farmer or organic store/market.

In your box you’ll find lightly smoked butter crumbs – “Schmelze” as Micha Schäfer calls them – which add a pleasant crunch, to be used in a dish with the blackcurrant wood oil. Play it safe by using the latter as a marinade. If you’re feeling particularly bold, whip it into a milky mayonnaise.  

The second dish features our onion ragout with elderflowers as well as camelina oil from Ölmühle an der Havel. If that sounds too simple, worry not – when all the ingredients are top of the crop, you’ll hardly need anything else. This dish is full-bodied and exquisite, fresh and delicate like the early spring. Plus, it’s also incredibly quick and easy to prepare. The hardest part is peeling the asparagus, really. 

Optionally we’d like to offer a lovely bottle of 2019 Riesling by Julien Renard from the Mosel, boasting low alcohol, fine wildness, sparse acidity and a reduced mineral structure. At the same time, it’s absolutely clear and straightforward – a harmonious middle ground between the safe haven of convention and the eccentricity of some natural wines.

This set contains

Smoked butter crumbs

Take it from us: these are as versatile as salt! Warm up the crumbs in a small saucepan and then heap them onto literally everything – your favorite vegetables or even meat.

Blackcurrant wood oil

Freshly cut blackcurrant wood, extracted overnight in rapeseed oil from Fläminger Genussland. A beautiful addition to any salad, yet as versatile as olive oil. 

Onion ragout with elder

Creamy, lightly sour buttermilk beautifully compliments the taste of glazed onion. Since we don’t want to hold back on nature’s endless opportunities, we produce the jam in two flavours. 

Camelina oil

Rich in unsaturated fats, camelina oil is one of Micha Schäfer’s favourites – and not just for its health benefits. Cold pressed oils are best stored cold, so be sure to keep yours in the fridge.

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.
