    Many thanks for letting us know about the Monica connection. I posted a link to your blog at Techfocus the Lounge, as there are probably a lot of fans who will enjoy the programme.

    I somehow missed your original post on this book and author. Sounds fascinating. NZ secondhand bookstores are full of microwave books also. I did once buy the Alice B Toklas cook book in a secondhand store in Auckland.

    Unfortunately Monica wasn’t on the programme long enough – we just caught a brief glimpse of her during the 1980s, talking about the antique purple turkey that she has to cook and about being sacked because she licked her fingers on TV! I must say, she certainly beat the other Irish food presenters – Monica Carr, Denise Sweeney – that appeared on last night’s show hands down for personality.
