About us

Sonja Pereira, founding chef of Blue Pepper, grew up in an enchanted circle of royal weddings and hunting lodge parties in Bandung, 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 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.
