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.

As of last night, there's a new Iron Chef in town - or better yet, in Kitchen Stadium. And being the new kid on the block can be scary, even if you did beat out nine other chefs while wielding sharp knives.

For those who haven't yet watched the final episode of "The Next Iron Chef," keep reading at your own risk of spoilage. For those who have, an Iron Chef's fears are about to be realized.

...Don't say we didn't warn you.

...Oh, you didn't watch it? Why are you still reading?

...Here we go. Stop now or forever hold your peas. (Har har!)

Fame Bites goes inside the belly of the entertainment beast. We're dishing out where the celebrities are eating, what they're eating and who they're eating with.

Dean McDermott and his wife Tori Spelling are the stars and executive producers of Oxygen's "Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood," which is currently in its sixth season. Along with being a reality star, turns out McDermott is a budding culinary star in his own right.

We recently caught up with the film and television actor for some food for talk - and came away craving steak, homemade ice cream and wanting to hug Jamie Oliver more than we already did to begin with.

It's checkmate for chess pie

In a recent patriotic-and-Thanksgiving-themed lunchtime poll - brought to you by the Party of (D)eliciousness - one of the questions we posed was: what's your pie preference for the Turkey Day spread?

When a few folks declared their allegiance to the chess pie, many were confounded. What is this pie you speak of, and does it involve knights, pawns and bishops?

Chess pie is a particularly Southern creation - a rich custard-based pie with a filling made of eggs, butter and sugar. Some variations call for the addition of cornmeal, buttermilk or vinegar - and as the pie recipe migrated, as noted in our managing editor’s (semi) native Kentucky family recipe, dried fruits and nuts were added to the mix.
