Parmesan gets all the glory when it comes to pairing cheese with pasta. And there’s no question: Authentic Parmigiano-Reggiano, in all its many subregional variations, is one of civilization’s great cow’s milk treasures. But for nearly half Italy, from Rome on south, Pecorino is the hard cheese of choice.
Restaurant critic Craig LaBan is a fan of the “New England-style” IPA trend. We asked him to recommend some local versions. Craig LaBan: I’ve complained for years about the over-hopping of IPAs as the West Coast style took over American craft-beer culture in increasingly exaggerated examples. I prefer subtlety and balance. More is not always more. Just as the hottest pot of chili isn’t always best, neither is a beer so intensely bitter with hops that it will peel the enamel off your teeth.
The glass votive candleholder began its slide as though pushed by a mystical force. It began to move the moment we sat down at Keen, and it picked up steam like an illuminated hockey puck gliding across the rink of a highly glossed wood tabletop. It hit a crack, tumbled over, and spilled hot wax across my place setting, where it dried into a web of tacky white goo. And that’s where it remained, more or less ignored by the staff, for the duration of our visit. Our meal went downhill from there.
@publiusPHL Yes. No Bellers are rare, sometimes not even 1 a year. But big difference: I go in search of 4🔔ers, which have always been existing places that have perfected themselves over time. No 🔔s just happens in course of new restaurant flow. Year end revisits, though, offer hope.
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".
