Thank you very very much..... Now I get it. :) It helped me a lot !!!!

It sounds like the introduction to a recipe book to me.  I would re-write it as :

"What follows are a variety of dinners and suppers as served to great Lords and other people, as well as notes (probably on how to prepare the meals).  

Out of these dishes you can select whichever ones suit your needs according to the time of year (seasonal fruit and vegetables) and what meat is available depending on your location (i.e. which animals are commonly available and eaten where you are).  These meal guides are suitable whether you are providing a dinner (large main daytime meal) or supper (smaller evening meal)."
