Be Welcome!

About the medieval banquet and customs at meal

The servants and maidens of the Petrikeller welcome you as custom had it at that time as fellow and woman. One had not drunk in a quiet way for themself but said cheers to the ohters at table. The down handed toast is: “To thou health!” ( Auf die Gesundheit ) and had always been replied.

One used to drink from mugs made of clay, a knights cutlery consisted of his 10 fingers and a knife. This is how the so skewed meal was eaten. The bread was always broken with the hands and shared with friends.

Fingers were always used to eat, and also with soups. Rests one could not catch out of the tureen by slurping were picked up with the hands or the bread.
Guests are asked to behave in a well-mannered and decent way. Who doth not respect such rule, pokes or troubles his neighbour, or even steals from him a juicy piece or drinks his wine, shall loose his mug and knife.

Shall there be an argument between the guests, they do not use a chair or stool to solve it, but they do behave like men , as it is manner among chums.
If one does not agree, ergo makes a grumpy or defiant face, shall be hauled away from the feast on the pillory.
