The tour kicked off with dishes of black cod miso at Nobu's newest London outpost in Shoreditch, followed by Hawaiian poke at Kaia at The Ned. Next up was Trawler Trash in Canonbury, which cooks with lesser-used species of fish such as coley and herring, before we headed to Michelin-starred Hakasaan in Mayfair for prawns with cashew nut and dried chillies.
Chef Rob Taylor and his wife Donna took over the pub in 2012 and describe it as a ‘muddy wellies and fine food kind of place’. Over the past few years the team have won plaudits for their modern British cooking, with The Guardian’s Marina O’Loughlin describing the food as ‘warming, like a hug’. Rob was named Gastropub Chef of the Year at the Top 50 Gastropubs earlier this year and the The Compasses was also ranked 17th overall in the UK.
Fred Sirieix is discussing military tactics. The Frenchman has read The Art of War, the Chinese treatise on warfare, multiple times since his 20s and believes its lessons can be applied to restaurant service. His approach is less about smoothing tablecloths as customers enter, and more about being prepared for anything. He likens the ‘front-line’ restaurant staff to ‘gazelles on Red Bull’. The lion, a polite term for a difficult customer, could come at any moment, and they must be ready.
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".
