Cheban recently forked over to Eatocracy his favorite eats on both coasts - from "the city of angels" to "the city that never sleeps" - and where he takes a certain Real Housewife of New Jersey and Kelly Osbourne for wings.

Chef Pierre Thiam is on a mission teach New Yorkers about African cuisine.

He opened his Senegalese restaurant Le Grand Dakar in Brooklyn, New York, four years ago and such has been its popularity that he has diversified into catering events, teaching cookery classes and appearing on television shows such as Iron Chef America.

Thiam has also written a cookbook, "Yolele," which was nominated for the coveted Julia Child Awards. He says it is the first Senegalese cookbook in English. Yolele, a Fulani word that translates as "let the good times roll," is the first Senegalese cookbook in English, Thiam said.

He said: "I believe it's a food that has a place on the culinary table and it's important to start with a book. Maybe other people will get inspired and do other things with it."

Washington (CNN) – Just when you thought the race for the South Carolina U.S. Senate seat could not get more unusual, there's a new twist.

Famed South Carolina chef and cookbook author Nathalie Dupree has entered the race as a write-in candidate. She tells CNN she was motivated to launch the long-shot campaign after reading an article last week about GOP incumbent Sen. Jim DeMint's refusal to sign off on a congressional earmark of $400,000 to study dredging for the port of Charleston.

The study was designed to help allow the port to accommodate larger boats – thereby helping the state's economy.

"I just got angry," Dupree says. "Jim DeMint would not sign off on it."
