Regia Anglorum - Food And Drink in Anglo-Saxon England (2803 words)
By and large though, food was almost always boiled in a cauldron or baked in the embers of a fire usually wrapped in leaves and clay, as it was a more economic way of providing well cooked nutritious meals.
Food was eaten from wooden or clay bowls using only a knife and spoon (forks do not seem to have been used for eating until much later in the medieval period).
Drinks were served from pottery jugs and pitchers or from bottles made of wood, clay or leather.
variblog: Food and Drink (395 words)
Food was good and with the great themeing inside and out (helps that its an authentic diner shipped over from the states!) it made a nice change from the usual burger joints we get over here.
Fast food, mainly Maccy D's at the time, was limited to birthdays and other occasions and even then only a hamburger (with no ketchup/onions/mustard/whatever else is plopped on top) and fries.
From my experience at-least, fast food was something to look forward to, something totally amazing that you could only eat it when celebrating birthdays and other such occasions.
