Traditionally served at buffets, smorgasbords or at midsummer celebrations, meatballs – or, as the Swedes know them, köttbullar – vary slightly from family to family and town to town. While opinions may differ on whether to use beef, veal or a mixture of beef and pork, with a thick sauce or a thin gravy, köttbullar are always accompanied by a generous dollop of lingonberry jam. Use a cranberry or redcurrant sauce if you can’t get hold of any lingonberries.
I blame my Nordic roots for my obsession with cardamom. It works its magic with apricots in this divine and creamy bread and butter pudding. Be sure to seek out plump green cardamom pods with aromatic black seeds inside. 350ml regular or double cream, plus extra to serve, if wished6 slices of white bread, crusts removed (slightly stale if possible)Place the crushed cardamom seeds in a saucepan with the cream, milk and 100g of sugar.
I was born in Ireland, but my mother is Icelandic. And although her parents – my grandparents – had moved to Canada by the time I was born, we went to Reykjavik often to visit our cousins. And kleinur cardamom pastries are a particularly sweet memory of those childhood visits, as well as visits to Amma – my grandma’s. She made them for my grandfather. My mother used to make them for me. I played around with them when I first became interested in baking. Now, my daughter loves to make them too.
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".
