What did the victorians eat

what did the victorians eat
Question asked by: miahn8

Asked on: 24 Mar 2010

The Victorians ate whatever they could get their hands on as seasonal foods were very much the order of the day and there was a lot more thrift.

Certainly many more parts of the animal were used, indeed the whole animal, and things people don't tend to eat today like hearts and brains of animals and that sort of thing were delicacies, or at least eaten.

Also the fruits and vegetables that were in season would be eaten at the time as there was no concept of having things imported from overseas as they would not keep fresh (things like tea of course kept fresh but it was not realistic to move fruits and things really).
