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.

Some have labeled Eddie Huang "a bad boy," the next Anthony Bourdain - to us, he's just Eddie Huang. There's no other way to describe him.

Sure, he enjoys himself the occasional Four Loko, but the boy also makes a mean dorade and can write like no one's business - as evidenced in his blog "Fresh Off the Boat."

For those of you less familiar with our favorite Baron of Baos, he's the owner of BaoHaus in New York City. He also famously published his mother's e-mail response on his blog after Sam Sifton's zero-star New York Times review of his now-closed restaurant Xiao Ye. (You might need this information later - just sayin'.)

Royal doughnuts, chocolate biscuit cakes and some of the world's best chefs weighing in on the feedbags they'd go strapping to the crowned heads of state.

Food artist Prudence Staite has created likenesses of Prince William and hid bride-to-be Kate Middleton in the form of an entirely edible portrait created from the elements of a traditional roast dinner. You may now eat the bride.

Yes. That is diet and fitness guru Richard Simmons holding a slice of a cake in a pasted-up snow globe. There's a reason for this. We'll share it soon, but for now, just...enjoy. Be with it. Let it calm you.

Breakfast buffet

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.

As if you didn't already have your calendar marked, March 30 is Turkey Neck Soup Day.

Turkey neck soup is pretty much just what it sounds like: a soup with chunks of meat from slow-simmered turkey necks.

Sure, it might seem more appropriate of an occasion for, say, November - but who are we to challenge the food holiday gods? After all, we don't want to be smote with a giblet bag.

What's on TV?
