When you’re barbecuing for guests, it’s wise to have a few munchies ready when they arrive and the main event is still finishing out on the pit. For my money, nothing sets the stage better than a little pimento cheese and crackers. Here’s my standard recipe—it’s always a hit. Grate the cheddar using the larger holes on your cheese grater and put it in a large mixing bowl. Add in a little less than half a cup of mayonnaise, reserving some for adjusting later.
"It was the safest I’ve ever felt. "That’s how a newly sober Sean Brock described the "chill space" at the Atlanta Food + Wine Festival in his revealingstory this week. As Brock told NYT writer Kim Severson , the chill space allowed the chef — known almost as much for his love of bourbon as his renowned cuisine — a safe place to avoid the festival’s temptations.
Mike Mills knows a thing or two about impressing barbecue judges. After all, he’s won three Grand World Championships at Memphis in May, America’s premier barbecue cook-off. But please don’t ask him for tips on cooking championship-quality ‘cue at home. This has nothing to do with trade secrets. He just knows that competition techniques aren’t meant for the backyard.
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".
