Also what something is called can mean something rather different than what that name meant at an earlier time.

A ship's galley as we understand it today could be quite different in the far future where advanced automation and nanotech is involved. Today you need a complete staff to man a galley and feed hundreds or thousands of crewman. In the 23rd century maybe you only need one guy monitoring the whole operation including programming. With a sophisticated system maybe all the one (or few) individual(s) need to be primarily responsible for is making certain the right raw materials are available and in place.
Except in TUC they still had a number of people cooking stuff in the galley in fact someone was making what looked like mashed potatoes in the pot Valeris vaporized.
They got so much wrong in the films I wouldn't take that too seriously. Besides in TMOST it's said that there is a place aboard where individuals can still prepare food by hand if they wish. That's probably what we saw.
