Change Over Time From the Middle Ages to Modern Day By Amanda, Tianna, Annie, and Makeda
Food, from the Middle Ages and Today Since the Middle Ages the food we ate/eat has changed a lot.
Middle Ages Food In the Middle Ages what food you ate depended on what your rank was. They ranked food by closeness to heaven. Nobles ate the highest ranking (such as birds), and peasants ate the lowest (things that grew in the ground). Though on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays the Church ordered that no one could eat meat on those days. So fish became popular.
Modern day food Today we dont have rank to tell people what they can and cant eat. We now also have more foods than the Middle Ages, such as fast food, pizza, tacos, and many, many more. Now we also dont eat many foods they used to eat like, hedgehog, and humming birds.
Comparing and Contrasting Medieval and Modern day food Similarities Then/now we eat bread a lot. During Lent they werent allowed to eat meat on Fridays, some people still dont. Certain meat is still considered a luxury, like it was in the Middle Ages. Most people still only eat what they can buy. Differences In the Middle Ages it took all day to prepare meals. We no longer rank food by closeness to heaven. Back then the wealthy could only afford herbs and spices. Now anyone can. Then your rank decided what you could eat, but now you can eat anything. We now have many more varieties of food than back then.
