This chapter begins by examining expressions of social division other than class. We describe the clientele of different types of restaurant which attract differentially the young and the old, men and women, and different ethnic minority groups. Indian restaurants and curry are discussed, as are interviewee reactions to fast food. The epitome of mass consumption, fast food is incorporated into almost everyone’s repertoire. We also examine vegetarianism and veganism, practices once considered as alternative. The chapter also discusses innovations in formats for the presentation of food in restaurants.

Keywords:   ethnic diversity, fast food, globalisation, identity, innovation, social divisions, vegetarianism
