Best Answer

Edesia is the numen, or divine spirit of feasting , which was apparently considered a magical and important act by the Romans, enough so to have its own goddess. The verb edes can also mean " to spend money on food", connecting her with luxury as well as city life, where most of the food was bought, rather than in the country where people grew most of their own.
