The U.S.-based startup Lo-Fi Aperitifs is surely hoping to get Americans excited about vermouth and amaro, components of famed cocktails and aperitifs. They sent me a few bottles which I dutifully tried out in martinis, a Negroni, spritzes and even poured over a couple of rocks. What the Lo-Fi offerings lacked in Old World depth, they made up for with a brightness that introduced new flavor profiles to old favorites.
Music and food collide on Talkhouse‘s and Food Republic’s newest podcast, “Talkhouse Food.” Chef and restaurateur Andrew Carmellini joins rapper A$AP Ferg in a discussion about inspiration, leadership and outdoor cooking over open flames in the first episode.

The scene: A middle school cafeteria in New London, Connecticut, where Giusti’s company Brigaid launched last year with a mission to improve public school food. He’d just asked one of the chefs that Brigaid had hired how students were reacting to a new butternut squash soup that had been introduced to the menu. The chef replied that he thought the kids liked it, so Giusti, wanting to confirm this, sought out student opinion.
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".
