Dining Out: A History of the Restaurant in New Zealand
By Perrin Rowland

Dining Out presents a history of the New Zealand restaurant from the 1860s to the present.

Drawing on menus, memories, photographs and newspapers, Perrin Rowland tells the story of how restaurants changed over time from the nineteenth century to today. From tales of luxurious dining during the golden age to the effects of licensing and the Depression years to the rise of ethnic restaurants and the coming of age of modern New Zealand fine dining, Dining Out is a feast of gusto and history.

Throughout, Rowland asks important questions about restaurants, and the way we dine, in New Zealand. How did international, trends - from hamburgers to nouvelle cuisine - shape our restaurant experience? How have New Zealanders reconciled a culture of the ordinary bloke with the luxury of dining out? And was it really all bad coffee and soggy chips before 1980?

Extensively illustrated, thoroughly researched and engagingly written, Perrin Rowland shows that in among the silver service and steak & chips of the New Zealand restaurant experience lies a gastronomic story about the way our peoples and cultures have changed over the past 150 gears.
