Most people consider vermouth a mixer, but in Spain the herb-steeped fortified wine has become a main attraction, with watering holes devoted to the drink. “Spaniards take the vermouth bar very seriously,” says Katie Button, an F&W Best New Chefs alum. During her trips back to Spain—she worked at El Bulli in 2009—Button has been drawn to the new-wave vermuterías, which serve elevated bar snacks alongside sweet red vermouths, dry whites and complex aged reservas.
“I remember the first eclipse I ever saw in 1994,” says Tyler Malek, one half of the ice cream team behind Salt & Straw in Portland, Oregon, and Los Angeles. “There was something inexplicable about being a kid and looking up into the broken sunlight, realizing that the universe was much, much larger than—and literally shadowing—my own life.” His fascination with space grew as he got older, and one time in college, he told his professor that he wanted to be the first farm-to-table chef in space.
“The drinking culture I grew up with was more tea and coffee,” says Julia Momose. But for the star bartender behind GreenRiver in Chicago and now Oriole, her boozeless upbringing in Kyoto taught her something more essential. “I learned early on to make sure there was something for everyone,” she says. And that’s just the point of her new nonalcoholic drink menu at the Best New Chef winner Noah Sandoval’s restaurant. It brings an extra layer of hospitality—as well as some challenge.
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".
