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.

At San Francisco's SPQR, chef Matthew Accarrino gives Northern Californian ingredients a little Italian flair.

Accarrino has worked under industry heavyweights Rick Moonen, Todd English, Charlie Palmer and Tom Colicchio. He was also notably recruited in 2004 as opening sous chef of Thomas Keller’s three Michelin-starred Per Se.

Seeing as summer is the time to pack up the ol' station wagon and hit the road, Accarrino offers up his obligatory pit-stops on the ultimate culinary road trip through Italy. Not exactly Wally World, but it'll most certainly do.

Use: This soft shell crab was cooked in a cast iron skillet so the shell could crisp up in the screaming heat and become exceedingly scrumptious.

While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.

We're all ears for National Corn Fritters Day.

These down-home, crispy cakes are chock-a-block full of summertime corn kernels cut right off the cob.

Serve these puppies right out of the fryer: drizzle 'em with maple syrup (just trust us on this one), dip 'em in salsa or enjoy plain with just a sprinkling of salt. Fried Friday delight!

What's on TV?
