After having received a degree in Anthropology and worked for seven years as an archeologist, I fell into recipe-testing by accident and have now been at it for over 25 years. Most of my work has been for the New York Times, but I have tested and edited numerous cookbooks, have written for many p...
A few years ago I went down to our wine cellar (crawl space, actually) and found a bottle of Green & Red Chiles Canyon Zinfandel, 1977. I took it up to the kitchen and poured a bit into a large Riedel Vinum Syrah/Rhone glass, which is capable of holding almost exactly a full 750 ml bottle of wine. No, this Green & Red didn’t have the common brambly, briary, peppery Zin thing going on.
It is a simple, boiled potato that leads me to the realization that the Azores will likely be one of Europe’s next big food destinations. I’m in Angra do Heroísmo, a small city on the island of Terceira.Referred to simply as Angra, this peaceful coastal enclave isa UNESCO World Heritage site. The streets are cobbled with narrow sidewalks, and those leading to the sea are arrow-straight.From almost anywhere in the town you can see the sheltered bay. It’s idyllic, peaceful, protected.
One of my most anticipated summer experiences is sighting my first chanterelle mushroom at “camp” (State of Maine-speak for a rustic cottage or cabin). Sometimes a chanterelle appears randomly along a path or lane in the woods, but most often these treasures require you to hunt a bit.
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".
