I commenced my culinary odyssey in Australia, originally stepping into kitchens for financial sustenance. Over time, the daily grind ignited a love affair with cooking. Witnessing patrons relishing their meals made the toil worthwhile. The pursuit of culinary finesse led me to enroll in culinary school, refining my craft. With nearly six years in the industry, cooking evolved into a vividly creative outlet, allowing me to manifest my persona in each dish I craft.
In my culinary sphere, I steer clear of discord, embracing a cheerful disposition and relishing every moment. My inspiration is a mosaic of experiences gleaned from diverse restaurants, globetrotting escapades, and the tapestry of my life’s journey.
However, it was the Chicken Ballotine that captured my culinary heart—an exquisite amalgamation of technique and flavor. Its preparation demands dexterity and offers a platform for imaginative seasoning, embodying my dedication to mastering culinary artistry.
Chef Yasin Penacoba—devoted to infusing each creation with passion, relishing the joyous harmony of flavors, and transforming mere ingredients into savory tales.


Chicken Ballotine takes the spotlight in my culinary repertoire—a whole chicken, deboned and filled with a tantalizing blend of sage, mushrooms, and caramelized onions. The artistry lies in rolling and tying it with precision before searing and oven-finishing. It's a canvas for creative flavor explorations, showcasing my love for butchering techniques and inventive taste combinations.

    Chef Yasin was supremely professional, the food was sublime, and the entire experience was just perfect. | Every single course was a complete experience in itself, but I have to say the black truffle and wild mushroom risotto was spectacular.
