Steak frites are on the menu at every brasserie. But have you ever dipped a spoon into silky eggs poached in red wine, or light-as-air pike quenelles? Chef Jamie Mammano and his culinary team recently took a whirlwind dining trip to Lyon to research those quintessential French dishes—along with classics such as duck confit (pictured), saucisson, and pâté en croûte—for the restaurant group’s forthcoming Bar Lyon. So why the deep dive into Lyonnaise cuisine?
The bow tie is back. When his new PBS television show and companion cookbook, Milk Street: The New Home Cooking launches later this month, Christopher Kimball’s new Boston-based food-media empire will be complete. “In terms of our major content pieces, we have the foundation built, now we just have to go from there,” says Kimball, who also has a Milk Street magazine, cooking school, and radio show.
It’s no secret that Townsman chef-owner Matt Jennings has championed some of the finer—and fattier—aspects of New England cuisine, from cheddar-loaded mac and cheese to heritage-pork charcuterie. It’s also no secret that he’s lost about 160 pounds over the last year by cutting those things out of his own diet.
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".
