Google Home and La Pizza

Google Home and La Pizza. The future dear friends is not that far away. Passionate about science fiction films, where everyone spoke a command dictating computer (age 80/90), since then I dream of having a virtual butler ordering him to prepare the coffee house. Here we are, we have finally arrived at what I've always wanted, for Christmas I gave a Google Home mini. Absolutely amazing.

At first I was a little’ skeptical, you know ... talking to a machine sometimes makes us feel a bit’ stupid, but over time you get used. It can greatly help us to successfully overcome all the commitments we made during the day, reminding appointments, a shopping list and even conversing with our favorite songs.

Do not use it a lot to learn about the age of famous people or to know who is the richest in the world, it helps me a lot in the daily routine of my life. I have a School pizzaioli, so one of my first tests I did was to get help managing my School pizza makers and pizza baking.

I ask him to various recipes, I even tested by asking a good pizza around here and even ask information Pizza Cook School Silvio Cicchi, or, which play a practical vocational course. The answers were always the butler to the occasion and satisfactory. Great, both in English and in Italian language.

One of the things that struck me most is the news that Google Home offers its users, that is, the ability to order a pizza for you. There are already many US chains that joined in embracing this Google initiative, because at the moment the service is only available in the US.

Even our virtual butler remembers our tastes and the days when frequently we order pizza, sometimes even anticipating our thinking, asking us if we want to order that kind of pizza and automatically providing payment, or just say "Hey Google" Sort the usual Starbucks.

The Etiquette of the phone in a Tavola Restaurant

The Etiquette of the phone in a Tavola Restaurant

The Etiquette of the phone in a Tavola Restaurant. Just yesterday I went to lunch at a restaurant and I noticed something quite disgusting and common now visible in all restaurants and pizzerias. We sit at the table with other diners completely ignoring them as if we were not giving importance only to its own phone.

But how really to behave at the table with the phone? There was this problem until a few years ago, then we see at a glance what they say about good manners when sitting at the table and handling the phone.

The Etiquette of the phone in a Tavola Restaurant
The Etiquette of the phone in a Tavola Restaurant

The Etiquette of the phone in a Tavola Restaurant

For patrons of restaurants and pizzerias, the situation is alarming, it seems that handle mobile phone at the table it is justified by the fact that it could or should somehow photographing the dishes and the various courses and then immediately publish on social, immediately after follow the comments to posts / photos and comment in turn, often turning the conversation with the guests in an absolute vacuum.

As a remedy to everything? Let us see what tells us the etiquette of Table Manners.

The Etiquette of the phone in a Tavola Restaurant
The Etiquette of the phone in a Tavola Restaurant

The Etiquette of the phone in a Tavola Restaurant

Never place your phone on the table. Immediately remove the ring and place the phone in the bag. No nothing will happen in the next two hours while you are sitting at the table, I can assure you.

If you own "telephone sick" I can suggest a shortcut: Get up to mid lunch and go to the bathroom to check messages and to draw some pictures while you're sitting in the bathroom, to post on social as by now most people do, maybe after you have eaten the noodles, just to see if in the meantime it is something incredible happened in the meantime that you were intent on consuming the meal.

The Etiquette of the phone in a Tavola Restaurant

It could happen for you to wait an urgent call for family reasons or for work, just check the phone a couple of times if you have received calls since the ringer is muted, but try to explain to others why your diners quite insane gesture while you're sitting at lunch.

If you really "need" to photograph the dishes that are served there, at least do it one at a time without confusion, but if the other diners or your partner does not share your sad this Craze, then give us a better cutting.

Conclusion: Whether sitting at the table consuming a meal, both at the bar sipping a drink with other people we have to keep in mind that whoever is in front of you always has priority on callers, and this thing with the passage of time has overturned. Place the answering machine in your cell (It was invented for this) and as soon as free from commitments can recall who has sought.

Personally, I fully agree with these rules, before sitting down at the table I turn it off and power back up only the exit of the restaurant and you? What do you think? Leave a comment in the space below.

Once again before I say goodbye I would like to summarize some of the links available on our website entirely dedicated to pizza:

Pizza All’Oppio

Pizza All’Oppio. It's a few months ago the amazing news of a Chinese restaurateur who to fight the crisis has started serving opium poppies shredded spaghetti with a sauce. It seemed to work well for the brilliant restaurateur who saw his clients out from your local, satisfied we will, and with a smile, until one of his clients was stopped at a place of drug block, and arrested for drug use.

Now, a good pizza from the twisted mind (like mine) he immediately thought of as able to apply the same principle to our beloved pizza!!What you would not do to see your local full of customers every night!

Pizza All'Oppio
Buns with poppy seeds

Pizza All’Oppio

Without risking being arrested, a natural way there would:

According to the EFSA which is the European Food Safety Authority (Link at bottom of page), poppy seeds, widely used in bakery, in bakery and pizzeria, contain opium.

Always the EFSA states that the use of poppy seeds as an ingredient in food preparation (so even pizzas) It can determine an ingestion of significant doses of morphine, in a special way on a segment of the population such as children from 3 a 10 age.

The poppy seeds that are derived from Papaver somniferum L., It is already widely used in cooking in many European countries, including our Italy, with them are preparing lots of desserts and bakery products, on cakes and in many dishes in the kitchen as an ingredient, in addition to being used for the production of edible oil.

Pizza All'Oppio
A cake with poppy seeds

Although the seeds do not contain alkaloids, they may be contaminated when the plants themselves suffer attacks of pests, or during the delicate phase of the collection. The ingestion of these contaminated seeds can cause adverse effects related to morphine content, with the consequent possibility of measuring high levels of this alkaloid in the urine and blood, sufficient to interfere with the modern drug tests.

The European Commission, always through the EFSA it has initiated an audit on the possible risks to human health that can be given from the poppy seed consumption.

The main alkaloid content from contaminated seeds is morphine, followed by codeine, tebaina, noscapina e papaverina. The ingestion of these substances cause adverse effects which affect the central and peripheral nervous system, causing sedation, drowsiness and breathing difficulties. Papaverine instead, It acts as a muscle relaxant.

Anyhow, the content of alkaloids in poppy seeds can be drastically cut down to 90% simply by treating the seeds. Put simply, once cooked, they lose all of their property that stoned.

Focaccia with onions and poppy seeds

Pizza All’Oppio

So dear friends pizzaioli, if you want happy customers, They leave your room with a smile, and …they return to find other pizzas with poppy seeds… 🙂 dovete aggiungerli crudi sulla pizza.

The risk of becoming drug addicts eating pizza on pizza in exaggerated quantity is very unlikely, but for sure it will give a positive result for opiates during any drug tests. Similar cases have already occurred, not only in China, Also in Italy.
