VEGAN cuisine was served up by hospitality students at the Isle of Wight College.

With the help of the executive chef from Ventnor Botanic Garden, Brad Roe, the students prepared a vegan tasting menu.

The carefully prepared menu included plants and spices from the botanic garden.

Chef Brad Roe is a former student of the Isle of Wight College hospitality department.

He left the Island after his training to work in luxury restaurants in London, then worked in Las Vegas for 20 years.

The event marked the start of a co-operation project between the Isle of Wight College Restaurant and the Ventnor Botanic Garden restaurant.
