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.

After opening Spago on the Sunset Strip in 1982, Wolfgang Puck quickly spread his chefdom across America. And with a name like his, how could you not build an empire?

Today, at age sixty-one (Editors' note: happy birthday!), Austrian-born Puck is now an award-winning celebrity chef, restaurateur of 16 fine dining restaurants and 80 Express operations, multiple cookbook author and Emmy Award-winning television host.

So go on: Rock us Amadeus.

Dear Mr. James,

We know you've got an awful lot on your plate right now, what with negotiating your new (or continuing) contract, potentially having to pack and move (remember - lift with your knees) and look for a place with really high ceilings and enough mantel space for all your MVP trophies, Olympic medals and platinum plated baskets full of cash.

Wouldn't that all go down easier if you just had a nice snack?

A couple of weeks ago, we asked via iReport for your stories of that person, place, book, restaurant or dish that made you sit up and start to see food as more than just a three times a day chore. You eat every day, and you've got a story to share.

Every so often, we're sharing the most hunger-inducing and heartfelt ones right 'chere.

AC360° Associate Producer Kira Kleaveland producer has deep roots with memoirist and former Gourmet editor-in-chief Ruth Reichl's tales of intrepid eating. Here's how a woman she's never met became a source of culinary courage.
