‘i’ve learned not to take anything for granted’

Monica Galetti is no stranger to overcoming hurdles. Born in Samoa and raised in New Zealand, she left home for London aged 23, where she landed a job as commis chef at Le Gavroche under the tutelage of Michel Roux Jr. She rose swiftly through the ranks to become the restaurant’s first female sous-chef and, seven years later, opened her first restaurant, Mere, with her sommelier husband David. The pair are also parents to 13-year-old Anaïs. But this year, 45-year-old Monica faced a huge hurdle. After weeks of trying to keep Mere afloat amid the outbreak of Covid-19, she was forced to close it in line with government guidelines, putting its future in jeopardy. She says it felt like years of hard work went ‘down the toilet’. Yet, it’s hard to…

be your own friend and cheerleader

Whenever I tell anyone that I suffer from self-sabotage, they often look surprised. On paper, I seem quite productive. I’ve had four books published in four years, so how can I be a self-saboteur? But self-sabotage is a very personal thing: it sits inside, it shows up internally and isn’t always visible to others. My inner critic has always been loud and the definition of ‘enough’ always morphs into something else and the benchmarks always move. So much so, I realised that if I didn’t change my thought patterns, I would be in danger of missing out on the whole ride. Society has us believe that if we keep striving for more, climbing slowly up the ladder, we will reach a point of eternal contentment. Of course, there’s no such thing…
