Maheesha 'M' Ratnayake - Director of Food and Beverage at Nobu Hospitality
Chef “Connie” is a world class culinarian with a management style that breathes professionalism, charisma and success. We worked on a project to open a ground breaking concept that introduced new industry leading operating models in a market that is arguably the most demanding in the world.
Her attitude and personality is infectious. He persona and skill level commands respect without her even trying. There will come a day where she and I will collaborate once more and I hope that will be soon.
She is not just a chef, she is a leader in a new world of culinary design, innovation and flair.

Jeremiah Gichia - Pastry Chef at JEAN-GEORGES DUBAI
Chef Connie is such a great mentor, an icon that I and many other up coming young chefs get inspirations from. I had the pleasure to work under her unique and exceptional leadership skills at The Farm.
My role at The Farm was made effortless due to the fact that Chef Connie had already created a professional environment.
She was strongly dedicated into developing culinary skills of the kitchen brigade.
It would be of such a great honor to be part of her culinary team again.
