Editor-in-Chief of The Cook's Cook: A Community of Cooks, Food Writers & Recipe Testers. Food writer, cookbook author, former @nytfood recipe tester.
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...
Most of our guests are friends from the city who come for weekends of cross-country skiing through nearby apple orchards or in the ancient sprawling graveyard behind our house. In the warmth of the wood-burning stove, we eat breakfast together at an 11-foot-long kitchen table that is made of weathered barn boards and seats 12. To enhance the experience, I like to use local products and recipes that have come down through generations of local families.
I live in New England, where the winters are usually long and snowy. My favorite form of cold-weather exercise is snow-shoeing, but by chance I haven't been able to go this year. Too busy working at the computer when fresh snow fell, out of town when I had free time, I've been spending too much time at my desk or, while vacationing, eating and drinking.
I began my career as a recipe tester for cookbooks, and I did that work for two years. I loved cookbooks and loved browsing for them at thrift stores or used-book shops. My husband, Jim, was a book publisher and often brought home the cookbooks that his company published or that were sent to him by other pubnlishers and editors.
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".
