An Original Dish...
The Bijou Café Chef and Owner, Jean-Pierre Knaggs, grew up in South Africa where the cuisine is influenced by the French, Dutch, Malaysian, Indian and Portuguese people that settled there. Jean-Pierre's mother, who was French, loved the famous spicy dish called Piri-Piri from neighboring Moçambique and would make it frequently for her family and guests. When Jean-Pierre opened the Bijou Cafe in 1986, his mother made sure he had her treasured recipe to feature on the menu. Back then nobody in America had heard of Piri-Piri and it quickly became a most popular dish on the menu. The Bijou Café is proud to offer the appetizer portion during this promotion as a loving memory and tribute to Jean-Pierre's mother who inspired him to enjoy "le bon vivant!"
