Samoan-born New Zealand chef, Monica Galetti believes food is about building relationships and creating memories. With a highly impressive career in cooking including a 12-year stint at the two Michelin-starred Le Gavroche behind her, and plans to open her first solo restaurant Mere in London’s Fitzrovia in January 2017, mother of one Monica juggles a demanding work schedule with family life. For Monica, food is about building relationships, and so she chose Miele appliances for her own kitchen at home as she was impressed by the professional standard results she could achieve when entertaining family and friends.
