FoodWhat We're Reading: The Inflated Promise of the American Food Hall Chandra RamDecember 5, 2017The Inflated Promise of the American Food HallFood halls are popping up all over the country, and while there’s much to celebrate—the variety of operators, minimal start-up costs for new concepts, the establishment of local food culture—they are not always “the artisanal promised lands” they seem to be, reports Elizabeth Dunn in The New Yorker. Is Being a Chef Bad for Your Mental Health? The hours.
It’s nice to look at pictures of restaurant gardens like those at restaurants in Sonoma or Napa, or of farms growing produce just for a chef. For the rest of us, grow-your-own is often limited to a few pots of herbs and lettuce—the time and effort to successfully grow a full garden is too risky, given everything else you have to get done in a day. But creating a full, usable restaurant garden is doable, in a city, in chilly climates, and even in a small space or on a rooftop.
Gray Kunz is the definition of old school that never gets old. The renowned chef was raised in Switzerland and Singapore, and worked for Fredy Girardet before moving on to positions in Hong Kong and then landing in New York, where he achieved icon status for Lespinasse, the restaurant he created at the St.
@MichaelNagrant I have always wondered why contestants didn't memorize a few basic dessert recipes once they found out they were going on the show. A great poundcake could have saved a few from being cut.
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".
