Dessert storm

(Photograph) - Dessert storm: executives at the Learning and Skills Council are more aware than most of the need to brush up on their vocational skills, especially as the quango prepares to shed more than 1,000 posts.

But it was charity rather than job-insecurity which drove some its leading lights to don their aprons for a spot of cooking at Castle college, Sheffield, in a project called Angels' Kitchen.

Emer Clarke, programme director for LSC South Yorkshire, left, and Fiona Blacke, its executive director, right, were among businesswomen from the area who put their culinary skills to the test to prepare a seven-course meal for invited guests.

The proceeds went to a range of charities supporting students with dyslexia and women with breast cancer.
