Salted celery

Nobelhart & Schmutzig

Here’s a more exciting way to inject your home cooking with a delicious burst of salty umami goodness. You’ll need a square kitchen grater or any kind of grating implement of your choice – if it’s the trusty square grater, be sure to use the finer side and the celery will look reminiscent of coarse sea salt.

In any case, you’ll want to watch your fingers as this celery is really hard. That’s the well-intentioned effect of being stored in salt for several weeks up to a month depending on size. The salt draws water from the celery and gives it… salt! The initial taste of salt is soon replaced by a strong celery flavour which lingers in your mouth for an amazingly long time.

Idea

A famed Nobelhart classic is tartare of beef, veal or game seasoned with celery salt. Of course, you can also use this natural flavor enhancer on vegetables or in salads.

Even cream cheese gets an unexpected depth when you sprinkle a generous pinch of celery salt on top. Perhaps the only important thing is that you should use the salt more like a fleur de sel, that is to add it to finished dishes rather than cooking it in soups or stocks. We feel like it’s too precious for that…

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.
