How much influence does what a dish looks like have on our appreciation of it? That's a subjective question, of course. For one of my boys, the look of food is key: he eats with his eyes. We all do, to some extent, and that is one of the appeals of dining out. Restaurants pay much more attention to presentation than most home cooks. Ferrymead Japanese restaurant Kenzo presents such beautiful plates of food that for once, I got over being embarrassed to be taking photos of my food.
OPINION: Anniversaries of disasters are understandably focused on loss. We mourn lives lost, homes razed and public landmarks destroyed. But seven years after the devastating earthquake of February 22, 2011 – and more than halfway through the rebuild of Christchurch – a new city is taking shape. With reminders of what we have lost or are yet to restore still propped up around the city, we have a two-faced city, with parts facing backwards and others pointing to the future.
The key to Strawberry Fare's identity is found on its menu: fully half of it is devoted to desserts. And in a sign of how seriously the sugary stalwart of a restaurant treats desserts, they are even split into sections on the menu – specials, chocolate, warm, frozen and cold. If that does not get you excited, then I'm betting you don't have a sweet tooth. If so, don't dismiss Strawberry Fare, because the savoury half of the menu is no afterthought.
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".
