Bread Salad. Just think about that for a second. Put the word "bread" in front of the word "salad" and you get people's attention real quick. Add some good grassy olive oil and chunks of summer tomato and they become very good listeners. In its simplest form, Italian panzanella is pretty much just that. Tuscans take stale, crusty bread , tear it into big craggy pieces, douse it in good olive oil, and give it the old toss-toss with ripe 'maters and more of that oil.
There are a lot of bad cutting boards out there. Glass? Throw that garbage out . Those "cool" ones in the shape of your home state? Hang it on the wall if you must, but don't bring it close to my kitchen. If you only have space for one cutting board, make it a decent-sized one, like this one from OXO . (If you want to go fancy and get a wooden board, we like Boos ). It sounds dramatic to say that it's changed my cooking life, but it's the truth.
Everyone has a different idea of what makes the best burger. Is it a thin patty or a thick one? Medium rare or medium well? Cheddar or American? We're not interested in diving into that debate right now. Instead, we present our staff-sourced list of our absolute favorite burgers. No grand claims, just good food (and apparently we really don't like fancy burgers). We had our son Marlon seven years ago at Lenox Hill Hospital.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
