Dinner generally describes what’s in many Western cultures the largest and most formal food of the day, which some Westerners eat in the evening. Historically the greatest food used to be enjoyed around midday, and called dinner. In European cultures, especially one of the elite, it steadily moved later in the afternoon over the 16th to 19th centuries. However, the word ” dinner ” may have different explanations depending on tradition, and may possibly suggest a meal of any size enjoyed anytime of day. Specifically, it’s still often useful for dinner at midday or in the early morning on special occasions, such as a Xmas dinner. In hot areas, individuals have always tended to eat the main meal later in the day, following the temperature has fallen.

Historical Rome

All through the days of Historical Rome, a dinner party was called a convivia, and was a substantial occasion for Roman emperors and senators to congregate and examine their relations. The Romans frequently ate and were also very keen on fish sauce named liquamen (also called Garum) all through claimed parties.

In London (c. 1875–c. 1900), dinner events were formal occasions that included printed invitations and formal RSVPs. The food served at these events ranged from large, expensive food exhibits and several dinner classes to more standard cost and food service. Activities sometimes included singing and poetry reciting, among others.
