About us

Chef Sonja Pereira 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 the anxieties of empire.

At Blue Pepper she brings back to life what a royal Indonesian feast tasted like. Her 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.
