  A meal fit for a princess meant something that specific??

From SoupTale: SOUP IN ITALY (
During the Middle Ages, specific foods became associated with social classes: onions, cabbages, and root vegetables for the peasants; fruits and delicate vegetables for the nobility. Giacomo Albini, physician to the house of Savoy, developed a theory that members of these classes would become ill if they strayed away from foods appropriate to themselves...
Class-specific veggies. If that doesn't take the cake.
