Coco Bodu Hithi to welcome Masterchef Judge, Monica Galetti in October

Coco Bodu Hithi will welcome back highly renowned MasterChef Judge Monica Galetti this October, where she will be hosting two delightful six-course dinners on 22nd and 25th October and a masterclass on 23rd October for guests.

Samoan-born, New Zealand-raised Monica Galetti moved to the UK in the late ‘90s to work alongside Michel Roux Jr at his two Michelin-star restaurants Le Gavroche. Today, she heads up Mere restaurant in London, serving up a fusion of South Pacific and French cuisine, and is also a judge on BBC Two’s MasterChef: The Professionals. Monica is also the author of two bestselling books: Monica’s Kitchen and The Skills.


Monica’s dinners and masterclass will be nothing short of a culinary journey, as she will be tapping into the island’s fresh seafood resources accentuated with the influence of her South Pacific heritage to create a unique menu embellishing the resort’s award-winning restaurant Aqua’s reputation for great seafood. Monica’s signature dish will also remain on the restaurant’s menu on a seasonal basis, ensuring that the future guests also get a taste of the specially designed menu.
