The owner of a Brixton restaurant with an all-female chef team is launching a new drinks menu with spirits sourced only from women-led companies. Hammant Patel Villa, whose dim sum restaurant Courtesan already sells wines made only by women, said: “It is scientifically proven — women can taste better than men, so why are most chefs men, why are most wine-makers men?
A wine bar boss is aiming to rid the industry of some of its “snobbery and fear” by brewing beer in wine barrels — and serving wine out of a can. Vinoteca co-owner Charlie Young also says he has abolished formal service and “boring” drink descriptions in a bid to change perceptions and make it more accessible to a younger crowd.
The chef taking over the Royal Albert Hall’s restaurant says it’s the perfect job — because working in a kitchen is just like being a musician on stage. Eric Chavot starts at the venue’s 90-seat restaurant, Coda, as consultant chef tomorrow. He told the Standard: “The drama, the heat, the bright lights, the audience participation — it’s very similar. Chefs suffer the same anxieties: will the performance be seamless, will the audience enjoy it? You want great reviews.
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".
