Lentil stew

Nobelhart & Schmutzig

A thick, hearty lentil stew made with organic German lentils from Landgut Pretschen in the Spreewald with a not-so-secret ingredient: Unertl wheat beer. You see, Micha is really rather fond of cooking with things that others prefer to drink – you may already know this from our eatery, where guests regularly ask for second helpings of our legendary Unertl wheat beer sauce. Plus, we’ve called in another old acquaintance to round off the whole thing: our smoked butter adds a really bacon-y, smoky aroma, even though this stew is of course perfectly vegetarian.

Need some extra bite? Just add any seasonal vegetable of your choice: cabbage in winter or radishes, kohlrabi or asparagus tips in spring.

Also works great with black kampot pepper, a dash of espelette or a few drops of chive oil.

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.
