- Extended description
'Evening Extra' presenter Siobhán Cleary gets Monica Sheridan to stuff a turkey for her in this Christmas cookery clip.
Monica reminisces about her days as a chef on Telefís Éireann and how she was fired for licking her fingers. She isn't too happy about the turkey provided for the task at hand, calling it the lousiest turkey she has ever seen. She thinks it's too small too. But Monica perseveres, lacing the stuffing with her secret ingredient.
Evening Extra was a nightly magazine programme which ran from Monday to Friday at 7pm dealing with current issues and people in the news. The first episode was aired on Monday 13 October, 1986 and it ran for 278 shows over 2 years until the final show on 29 April 1988. The programme had numerous presenters and reporters including Siobhán Cleary, Richard Crowley, Bibi Baskin, Aonghus McAnally and Shay Healy.
Monica Sheridan presented the cookery programmes 'Monica Sheridan's Kitchen' and 'Home for Tea' on Telefís Éireann during the 1960s. She also had a weekly cookery slot on 'The '70s Scene', a 1970s television magazine programme for women.
