  • Europeans are eating out in unprecedented numbers-in cafés, pubs, brasseries, and restaurants. But what if we open up this concept of "eating out" to include any eating that takes place outside the home? What cultural shifts can we see through time? What does this tell us about pre-industrial, industrial, and post-industrial societies? Eating Out in Europe addresses such questions as it examines changes in eating patterns. Case studies include the evolution of the pub, the rise of the fast food industry in Britain, picnicking in nineteenth-century France, snack culture in the Netherlands, industrial canteens in Germany, the rise of restaurants in Norway, and countryside traditions in Hungary. Fully comprehensive and illustrated, the contributors draw on examples throughout Europe from the late eighteenth century to the present day.
