About us

Chef Sonja Pereira, founder of Blue Pepper, grew up in an enchanted circle of royal weddings and hunting lodge parties in Bandung, Indonesia even as the curtain was falling on the colonial era and the world was besieged by anxieties of empire.

The kitchen team at Blue Pepper, inspired by her recipes, brings back to life what a royal Indonesian feast tasted like. Our rijsttafel takes you from mellow hints of spice to wickedly complex, rich dishes where spices remain centre-stage but using them properly is revealed as an art form.
