You know the saying, “trends come and go?” Well, this is about the ones that didn’t get the memo. These food and beverage trends were the hot topics of 2017 and should, apparently, have the goods to stay relevant for another year (at least). From Filipino cuisine and tech-savvy kitchen equipment to matcha and food waste, consider this your refresher course on all the things that made headlines in 2017.
I dare you to try and think of the words “sticky toffee” without your brain immediately auto-filling “pudding” at the end. It’s an instinctive, foodie Mad Libs kind of knee-jerk reaction on par with the likes “PB (&J)”, “Fried chicken (and waffles)”, “Green eggs (and ham).” You get the idea. The disconnect, however—at least for most Americans—comes from the fact that the iconic British pub dessert resembles nothing like what we call pudding stateside.
Ok, confession time. Embarrassing as it is to admit as a “food professional,” up until about a week ago I really didn’t think there was a difference between bruschetta and crostini. Honestly, I’d written it off as a matter of semantics. You say tow-may-tow, I say tow-mah-tow, that kind of thing. Because I mean, consider the stats: Both dishes are of Italian origin and follow the same basic formula of savory or sweet topping served on a slice of toasted bread. Right? Am I crazy? What am I missing here?
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".
