FATHERS and sons joined forces for the evening at Abbey College in Ramsey to take on a cooking challenge as part of a family learning week.

The evening had an Italian theme as the boys and their dads set about cooking a tasty meal of sundried tomato gnocchi with black olive and chorizo sauce.

Polly Redmond, advanced skills teacher in design and technology at Abbey College, organised the evening and lent a helping hand when it was required.

"There was a wonderful communal atmosphere," she said. "Many of the lads and dads admitted that they didn't do much cooking at home and most of them had never cooked together before."
