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.

Just because you're a dude doesn't mean your culinary ventures have to be modeled after Epic Meal Time. Sometimes, a man just wants to make a really, really good omelet - without it being bacon-wrapped or deep-fried.

For such times comes chef Marcus Samuelsson's FoodRepublic.com, a food and lifestyle website specifically geared toward food-obsessed men, and its editorial director Richard Martin.

Guess who's coming to dinner?

Yesterday, we were positively delighted to learn that Kelly Ripa is as fascinated with political analyst David Gergen as we are - and even better, that she wanted to give him pie. Well here at Eatocracy, we're all about making culinary dreams come true - so we reached out to The Gergs himself to see what he had to say about it.

“Dinner with Kelly Ripa? Anderson tells me she is a dream but I have never imagined that I would have the pleasure of her company. So, yes, I would definitely enjoy a dinner with her and would happily include Anderson, her husband Mark, and my own bride.

I only have one caution. She says she will bring pecan pie, and my southern soul would love that. But my team has just told me that she holds the Guinness World Record for throwing the most custard pies at someone in a single minute – 23! So, Kelly, please bring the pecans but leave the custard at home.”

"Street food adds life and vibrancy to the city," says Greg Smith, President of the Atlanta Street Food Coalition, a group seeking to help entrepreneurs break into the industry.

While some cities, like Los Angeles, have long-standing street food scenes, others have sprouted up in recent years. Instead of the LA-style trucks that are truly mobile, cities like Portland, Oregon, and Austin, Texas, employ a model where more-or-less stationary carts and trailers gather in designated areas.

Other cities are developing models somewhere along that spectrum; Greg Smith thinks Atlanta will end up with a hybrid approach.

"There will be multiple 'food truck lots' around the city and the trucks might move on a daily basis from lot to lot," predicts Smith.
