CONDÉ NAST TRAVELLER INVITES YOU TO A DINNER WITH MONICA GALETTI

OUR CHEF’S WORLD SERIES CONTINUES WITH A CELEBRATION OF OMANI FLAVOURS AT THE MASTERCHEF STAR’S OWN LONDON RESTAURANT, MERE, IN ASSOCIATION WITH ANANTARA HOTELS

One of the most recognisable faces on the British food scene, Monica Galetti was born in Western Samoa and learnt her kitchen craft in New Zealand before travelling to Le Gavroche in London, where she would eventually become the restaurant’s first female senior sous chef. This close association with owner Michel Roux Jr led to memorable appearances on MasterChef: The Professionals. She pulled no punches in judging the skills tests she set contestants, such as making crêpe soufflé or dressing a lobster – the results of which were often met with a look that would curdle custard. She opened her own restaurant Mere – the name is Samoan for Mary, her mother – in London’s Fitzrovia in 2017, with an adventurous menu that brings the occasional Antipodean ingredient to the table. For this special readers’ event, however, Galetti will be turning for inspiration to the flavours of Oman, a country she visited for the TV series Amazing Hotels: Life Beyond the Lobby. With co-presenter Giles Coren, she stayed in Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar, a hotel close to the ancient city of Nizwa and with far-reaching views over the Hajar Mountains. While here, the chef tested her own skills by preparing traditional, slow-cooked shuwa lamb, and tasting other Omani specialities such as moutabel, a spicy aubergine dip, and umm ali, an Arabic bread pudding. Anantara itself has a reputation for its food in properties around the world, from the group’s original hotels in Thailand to beautiful destinations in the Maldives and Mozambique.
