In Houston, the dining scene can cure cravings for everything from incendiary Szechuan tofu stew to country-fried Wagyu rib eye. It’s also an immigrant haven, with newcomers (and oldcomers) from Vietnam, Guatemala, India, Korea, the Philippines, Pakistan, Mexico, and many other countries, and a mayor dedicated to defending Houston’s sanctuary city status. That makes for delicious, diverse dining. Another boon: Houston chefs have access to a long growing season and sterling meats and seafood.
Whole sausages are neat and easy, sure, but when you split open their casings it’s like using a richer, more flavorful minced meat to create delicious, inventive dishes—merguez chili, chorizo-stuffed peppers, Italian-sausage Bolognese. Chef Alon Shaya, author of the new cookbook Shaya: An Odyssey of Food, My Journey Back to Israel, uses ground sausage to create a rich shakshouka, a Middle Eastern specialty of eggs simmered in spiced tomato sauce. This recipe serves four. How to Make it1.
Merguez in Morocco. Cotechino in Italy. Sai ua in Thailand. Every culture in the world, it seems, has a thing for sausage. It’s no wonder: Add a mix of spices to ground pork, beef, lamb, or venison (or a mix of any or all of them) and you have a self-contained dish as rich as most meals. And that’s just the starting point. Here’s our guide to the wide world of sausages.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
