Transcript of Medieval food,feasts and etiquette
Food, Feast and
Feasts for peasants were different then feasts for Nobles and Lords. Peasants could
only eat meals off of wooden plates and
drink from wooden goblets. Poorer people would be served less food, especially meat,
than the richer nobles.
Nobles had much better meals than peasants. They could pick out the best food first and could sit closer to the best minstrels and entertainment. Nobles ate off of metal, gold or silver plates, and drank out of metal , gold or silver goblets.
Food for Peasants
Peasants ate whatever they
could grow or whatever
animal they could catch.
Peasants used herbs to hid
Food for Nobles
Nobles ate what was grown or hunted on the manor. Meat was salted to prevent it from spoiling.
People who lived in medieval Europe ate vegetables like carrots, lettuce, onions, cabbage and turnips. Grains like barley,oats and wheat were made into bread and cake. They ate fruits like grapes cherries and plums. Some meats that were eaten are beef, fresh fish, chickens, partridges and pigeons.
Food was prepared a lot differentially then it is now. Medieval chiefs didn't know the proper and sanitary ways to prepare food. Insects would crawl on food and people,not even the chiefs, washed their hands properly with soap.
