Probably very much like English food today, except there was no refrigeration and the people were poorer. Also there was much less foreign influence on food. New world foods like peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, chocolate and vanilla had either not arrived or were not yet integrated into the diet. Because there was no refrigeration, dairy products were mostly limited to cheese and butter because everything else went bad very quickly. Many recipes used almond milk

where we would use milk.
