Medieval people loved to eat well. Historian Hillar Palamets writes: "Nobody paid any attention to staying slim or complained about the appetite. The main thing was to have plenty to eat and drink on the table." Nowadays, it is still good to know table manners while having an enjoyable feast, so that you could feel comfortable in every situation.
