The Teapot Challenge: Monica Galetti

MasterChef judge Monica Galetti takes on the BBC Good Food one-minute Teapot Challenge. How did she fare under our our quick-fire questioning?


The teapot challenge gives a top chef one minute to pick and answer as many questions from our teapot as possible. We're on the hunt for the snappiest, most interesting answers to our irreverent questions, and we're quizzing chefs on everything from crisps to cooking soundtracks. So, how did Monica Galetti get on?
