Here's something you may not know. Every summer, London holds the World Steak Challenge. Butchers, producers and farmers from all over the globe turn up to pit their best cuts of meat against each other in a bid for the title of World's Best Steak. Yes, it's a real thing. The competition is judged by a panel of chefs, food writers and butchers. For the past two years, it's been Tamworth-based wagyu producers Jack's Creek who have taken home the gong.
The news that Strode ended his life on Monday was confirmed by a representative of Merivale. Strode, a chef's chef, spent 27 years working at the pass and inspired generations of young cooks. Strode, who started his career at 14 washing dishes in rural England, worked for some of the world's greatest chefs, including Michel Roux at the Waterside Inn and Pierre Koffmann at La Tante Claire, before moving to Melbourne in 1992.
Here's a nifty way to create more space in the fridge: next time you're unpacking the groceries, dunk one-fifth of the food straight in the bin. One in five bananas, every fifth slice of ham and 20 per cent of your sourdough loaf. Statistics show it's going to end up in the rubbish regardless, so you might as well get it out of the way early. You see, Australians love food. We bloody adore it.
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".
