Meals in the Elizabethan Era varied depending on your social status. For example people in the lower half of the social pyramid only ate up to two meals a day where as the wealthy could consume a whopping 4 full meals a day which would consist of breakfast, dinner (which is like our modern day lunch), supper, and dessert. (Singman, 132)
Dining utensils in the Elizabethan Era varied between social classes just as the meals did during this time period. The wealthy would use beautiful hand crafted knives and spoons which were carried in a ornamental case (Singman, 138). The common, unlike the wealthy land owners would not eat with forks. Instead they ate with mainly there hands. Bowls and Plates were mainly made out of wood for the commoners.
