About this recipe
Healthiness : (72 votes)

The main meal for a working man in Tudor times would have been simple but wholesome, mainly based on vegetables but with occasional meat.

The drink would have mostly been ale, since water was generally unfit to drink, especially in the towns.

The podcast shows the table being laid for workers coming in for their midday meal with the food, drink and implements of Tudor times being explained - along with one of the many superstitions.
