    Pembroke are in a better position to act but it appears from what
    Doonesbury posted the university is taking the lead.
    I dont know the way these things are handled. I had assumed it would be Pembroke, but if the uni is dealing, then wouldnt that be even more serious? They must have an idea what they are looking at. It is still a strange thing to do unless it was for a bet/ initiation. Also odd that he spent years working at a homeless charity, which i'm assuming now that was just to pad his PS out. Would he get legal representation for something like this?.

    Only if he or his parents pay, but there is a law faculty members scheme for assisting students charged with disciplinary offences.

    Without seeing the Pembroke recipe, it is impossible to offer an opinion but there are plenty of Jamaican beef stew recipes all over the internet, some of which are from sites with an impeccable Caribbean pedigree. Once one takes into account that all "ethnic" food is adapted for the consumers' market (an English breakfast or afternoon tea outside England with have different ingredients to those traditionally found at home), I remain to be convinced.

    Actually Pembroke seem to be seriously foodie

    Why do the people complaining about this think everyone cares so much about the cultures they think they own for some reason?

    Nobody was interpreting 'Jamaican stew' as a faithful representation of Jamaican culture because (a) people are generally aware that 'foreign' foods produced in England won't necessarily represent the dishes they're derived from (cf. every Indian or Chinese restaurant) and (b) nobody really cares. Ordinary students who ask for a 'Jamaican stew' aren't thinking 'gee, this will really enlighten me about an interesting culture'. They're thinking 'oh, that sounds vaguely exotic, maybe it will taste somewhat interesting'.

    As with most student controversies, the problem here is basically the narcissism of the complainants.
