Monica Galetti

Born in Samoa, raised in New Zealand, and now firmly established as one of our most highly regarded chefs, Monica Galetti is supremely humble, but clearly fantastically gifted in the kitchen. Here she tells Simon about Desert Island Discs, barbecues on Polynesian beaches, representing Oceania in cookery competitions all over the world, getting her first job in the UK with Michel Roux Jr, and juggling the considerable challenges motherhood with the pressures of running of her first restaurant. We love her!
