Smoked butter

Nobelhart & Schmutzig

Clarified butter, gently smoked over beech wood – the not-so-secret ingredient in Micha’s legendary potato soup. Perhaps the taste of beech wood smoke will remind you of bacon, eel or trout. It’s no surprise that it is mostly greasy foods that are prepared in this way: smoke aromas only develop in fat, which is why smoked vegetables taste more of an overly full ashtray than anything else. With this butter, however, you’ll be able to get those lovely beech wood notes in asparagus, potatoes and co. 

Be sure to use it sparingly – it packs quite a punch!

Clarified butter, as is this smoked butter, can be stored in the fridge for several months even if you opened the glass.

Try with potatoes, pasta, any vegetable or meat. Makes a great addition to any puree, sauce, soup or stew for a taste that’s reminiscent of bacon, yet perfectly vegetarian. To make vegetarian eggs and ham, fry a slice of celeriac root in smoked butter.

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.
