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.

Ruth Bourdain is one of the seven wonders of the Twitterverse.

With more than 8,500 followers, the fictional character has accumulated quite the cult foodie following since he/she magically appeared in March.

When the former is known for being rather foul-mouthed, and latter is notorious for her Taoist-like tweets, hilarity with a touch of vulgarity typically ensues.

If you've seen the happily-ever-after animated spoofing, "Shrek," you may remember sidekick Donkey's legendary little spiel about parfait.

"You know what else everybody likes? Parfaits. Have you ever met a person, you say, 'Let's get some parfait,' and they say, 'Hell no, I don't like no parfait?' Parfaits are delicious!"

In fact, so many people like parfait: there is a day devoted to it.
