Helping the people find their spicy place one piece of flame-grilled chicken at a time.
For centuries, the people of southeast Africa have used PERi-PERi to bring fire to their food. It is in Mozambique’s rich soil and blistering sunshine that the Africa Bird’s Eye Chilli grows into its fiery best.
When Portuguese explorers arrived there, they were enchanted by its flavor. They added a squeeze of lemon and a kick of garlic and turned PERi - PERi into a very well - travelled spice. Which is how, many years later, it ended up in Rosettenville, Johannesburg.
One afternoon in 1987, two friends went for a lunch at a humble Portuguese eastern. As their meal drew to a close, they knew they’d tasted something that had to be shared. PERi-PERi was about to make one more journey from Rosettenville to the world. Thank you for sharing it with us.
