La Taue, the gift to share cooking with children – Italian Cuisine

La Taue is the gift for children who love to have fun in the kitchen. Designed not only to guarantee safety, but to encourage responsible and autonomous growth

There is nothing more beautiful than sharing happy moments with the whole family: for the little ones, the kitchen is a perfect opportunity to stay together, learn and have fun, especially with Christmas holidays arriving. If standing on a chair or stool to reach the hob is a cause for concern, ‘Hectomio has the perfect solution to guarantee absolute safety. But practicality is not the only reason for doing this gift.

The Taue

‘Heptomio is aimed directly at its users, the children! And here the "tower" becomes the "taue", just as a child would pronounce it. The same name of the 'heptomio' brand means "my bed", as little Giuliano, son of the entrepreneur, said when he was two Paola Bernardotto.

There learning tower allows you to reach the height of the adult, to stand by his side and observe him at par, without looking at it from the bottom up. It can be used in kitchen, to share the preparation of the snack daily or important lunches, like those of Holidays.
Not only that: The Taue is light and can be transported according to needs, use in bathroom to wash your hands, it closes easily with one hand and can be stored easily, without taking up space.

Like all 'heptomio' products, it is designed and manufactured entirely in Italy so artisanal (the catalog accurately specifies the hours and quantity of material processed).

What is cognitive design?

'Etomio' products are not only functional, but are intended to encourage responsible growth by children. The elements of cognitive design they are designed to stimulate several fundamental elements in growth: from safe motor management, stable and autonomous, to the stimulation of psychological and emotional attention of curiosity, independence, imagination.

The restaurant where couples share … the bill – Italian Cuisine

The restaurant where couples share ... the bill

It is located in Edinburgh: when you book a table, just ask for the separate accounts to be delivered at the end of the dinner. But Della Casa would not approve

They call THE'to21st century agreement: Holders of the Blackwood’s Bar and Grill restaurant in Edinburgh, which is part of the Nira Caledonia hotel, have introduced a new policy, to help couples on the first date avoid the inconvenience of having to deal with the account issue. When you book a table, on the phone or online, it is sufficient to ask that, at the end of lunch or dinner, the two guests are handed the separate accounts. The waiter will take them directly to the table, to dissolve any kind of embarrassment.

Garry Harding, director of Blackwood's restaurant, explains: "The time to pay the bill can trigger an unpleasant conversation between two people who have just started dating: we have made sure to help them get rid of this annoyance. Of course, even if the initiative is designed for newly formed couples, nothing prevents you from even using the already engaged couple. "We like to do things in an original way, and there is no other restaurant in town that offers something like this."

What about the etiquette?

The bon ton, however, provides that, at the end of a romantic dinner, must be the man to ask (and then, then, to pay) the bill. Indeed, he should do so by avoiding handling money at the table: if he does not want to pay by debit or credit card, he can find an excuse to approach the cashier and settle the bill there. This is confirmed by Laura Pranzetti Lombardini, author with Michele D’Andrea di Man and gentiluomo. That is the practical manual of the perfect gentleman (Gribaudo): «At the first meeting it is always up to him. Even at the risk of appearing a bit vintage or not very respectful of female independence? "Modern males are somewhat annihilated by the contradictory expectations of their ladies, but sometimes they are crafty and build the alibi of confusion." A woman who wants to confirm her autonomy can always propose to pay the next appointment.
