In the Middle Ages,
two meals a day were served. Our modern luncheon was called “dinner”
and was served in the morning, between 10 and 11, whilst supper was served
between 4 and 7 o’clock.
At the end of the Middle Ages, food was very rich in meat and it was not until the 19th century that such a high level of meat consumption was to be found in the towns and above all, in the country.
