The Heirloom Recipe Index exists to make your Grandma (or great uncle, or second cousin on your mother's side) a superstar and preserve their kitchen legacy.

The lost art of letter writing is something Lisa Miller's 86-year-old grandmother, or "Grams," simply hasn't lost.

Writes Grams: "I found this recipe in Judy's library when I was there with her and the kids. It sounds different (and good) . I'm going to make it as soon as I mail these recipes to you (I can't wait). I hope you like them. (I want to put them in Joan's lunch and for the girls at the shop). Love ya, Grams"

5@5 is a daily, food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors, and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe.

French-born Chef Eric Ripert is the executive chef at the internationally acclaimed Le Bernardin restaurant in New York City.

Chef Ripert and the seafood-focused Le Bernardin currently hold the Michelin Guide's highest rating of three stars, as well as four stars from the New York Times - among other accolades.

Ripert more recently appears as a judge on this season of Bravo's "Top Chef: D.C."

Nevertheless, even critically acclaimed chefs have their moments of embarrassment: we commend Monsieur Ripert for being brave enough to share his chef walk of shame with the Eatocracy masses.
