Typically,it´d depend on your load of green paper/money,that is if you´re takling about people´s dinner in renaissance times. If you were say,a peasant it would be soup and mush for every meal. Soups would be scrap filled with stuff like veggies,examples being carrots and eggs. The mush was made of a grain,say oats or wheat,then cooked in water like a modern day thing of ¨oat¨meal. Obviously the rich were clearly better. Sure they had soup like the peasants but the soups were made of exotic spices and even sweetened with sugar on occasions. Obviously they(The Rich)ate way more meat. They´d boil a large thing of beef,stag,or pig in a vat,and then bast them with juices and rose water for a flare in flavor.

A ¨GRAND¨ Banquet,would normally be 5 courses long. There were of ¨course¨ variations between them all. Of course there was the meaty stuff like a loin of veal and/or various animal meats(Ex:Chicken,Pig,Deer,Rabbit,etc.),the gross and disgusting healthy veggies like eggs and cloves,and maybe even a few sweet things like strawberries and plumes. Let´s just say it´ll drive you NUTS!

These people obviously had cash,especially back in the day,and they had to if ya wanted to pull everyone/a bunch of folks together for a party. And let´s say you just needed A METRIC TON OF SERVANTS!
