This chapter considers the origins of contemporary practices. It identifies forces accelerating and retarding change including globalisation, informalisation, aestheticisation and commodification. It argues that the principal features of the contemporary ideal of dining out began to form in the 1970s when the appeal of variety and greater flexibility in respect of new foods, procedures, timings and venues grew. Informalisation of manners occurred in parallel. The glimmerings of a new informed appreciation of food appeared in print and visual media which intensified from the 1990s. Familiarisation of dining out, informalisation of manners and the expectation of greater variety in practice sustained the trend towards a gradual revision in orientations towards eating.

Keywords:   change, continuity, diversification, familiarisation, informalisation
