Last night's dinner featured two American dishes, one from New Mexico, and the other from New England. The distance between these two areas of America is 2200 miles, or two and half times the distance between Land's End and John O'Groats. As you can imagine, the style of food in these two areas is as different as Scottish haggis and Cornish Pasty.

Last Monday we sold ZERO tickets for our weekly veggie formal; this week we sold over 70 (with an additional 30 Fellow's dining at High Table)! Does this mean that our students are embracing a more sustainable vegetarian diet, or was this week's brilliant attendance, simply a fluke?

Few, if any Colleges in Cambridge, can boast of sharing the best of their Fellow’s grub with the rest of their student body; that is of course unless the College in question is Pembroke! For many years now we have served both students and Fellows the same menus, with High Table, Formal, and Buttery meals being replicated on both ends of Hall.
However, once a term, even Pembroke treats it’s Fellowship to an ‘extra-special’ Parlour Evening dinner, one worthy of inviting spouses, partners and fellow Heads of House. This special evening is fully-booked far in advance and requires military style precision when concocting menus, seating plans, flower orders and the wine selection.
