Since they could not hunt meat or fish, they did not have use for a cauldron. How did the Higher Classes prepare their food? The Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Churches had a strict calendar schedule for their eating habits; consumption of meat was forbidden for a full third of the year for most Christians, and all animal products, including eggs and dairy products , were usually prohibited during Lent and fast. The Eastern and Western churches decided that Fridays were their fasting days, as well as Lent and Advent. Meat and animal products were not allowed except fish. Bibliography -Alchin, L.K.
