  Regia Anglorum - Food And Drink in Anglo-Saxon England
By and large though, food was almost always boiled in a cauldron or baked in the embers of a fire usually wrapped in leaves and clay, as it was a more economic way of providing well cooked nutritious meals.
Food was eaten from wooden or clay bowls using only a knife and spoon (forks do not seem to have been used for eating until much later in the medieval period).
Drinks were served from pottery jugs and pitchers or from bottles made of wood, clay or leather.
