Chef: Johann Roebert
Charter guests aboard REVIVE should plan for irresistible cuisine. Pack the linen pants with the elastic waistband…you’re about to embark on a gourmet yacht charter. Chef Johann grew up in Durbanville, South Africa, surrounded by vineyards. His father frequently enjoyed taking his two sons to dine at “fancy restaurants”. Johann’s sophisticated palate and passion for cooking developed early on. He knew he wanted to be a chef, and as soon as he completed high school he enrolled at the ICA (Institute of Culinary Arts) in Stellenbosch.
Johann owned a very successful, upscale restaurant in St. Maarten for 11 years, unfortunately it was destroyed by hurricane Irma. He has catered to villas, private jets, and also worked as a yacht chef on several different yachts. His versatility and innovative talents are well known in the industry. Recently he has started making favorite South African recipes. Charter guests might sample Biltong, a jerky-style snack, or Boerewors, a special sausage. Barbecue is another South African tradition. Johann says, “I love cooking in nature over open flames or “Braai”, as we say. Cooking on a campfire is one of the most enjoyable things to do. I have a special spot in my heart for traditional South African cuisine (Cape Malay), but my favorite cooking style is French cuisine. Japanese cuisine is also a favorite with my guests.”
“I have always been drawn to the kitchen”, says Johann, “If I have to choose one reason that I’m so into cooking, it’s because everyone loves good food! I immensely enjoy the happiness I bring with this skill. Secondly, cooking has taught me so much about different ways of life, and about cultures and histories through traditional recipes. I grew up around yachts, so a career in the yachting industry is a perfect fit. I get to cook at my highest level for the pleasure of wonderful guests from all over the world.”
