Last Night, Max and Simon, two of the nicest guys you're likely to meet, jointly celebrated their 21st birthdays with a special dinner in the Old Library. Leaving nothing to chance, the birthday duo chose a lovely menu, worthy of such a special occasion!

If a chef wants to cook Michelin standard food, they won't go far wrong by purchasing the French laundry Cookbook by Thomas Keller. This famous cookbook is full of amazingly beautiful and intricate recipes, taken straight from Thomas' three-Michelin Starred French Laundry Restaurant in Napa Valley, California.
At Pembroke we prepare recipes from many cookbooks, however the French Laundry Cookbook is the book we turn to for special events, such as today's Round Table Lunch, hosted by The Master.
Last night's High Table dinner was vegetarian (in keeping with the College's decision to make Monday night's dinner a 'meat-free' occasion ) and featured the same menu we had planned to serve Formal Hall. Unfortunately, we had no takers for last night's formal dinner, so only the Fellows enjoyed the wonderful feast that followed!
