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.

You may best recognize the strapping Australian as the host of  Bravo’s "Top Chef Masters," TLC's "Take-Home Chef," or as a contestant from Donald Trump’s "Celebrity Apprentice," but fun fact(!), the pretty face on the television can legitimately chef.

So - we recently decided to shoot the breeze with Stone about paying his culinary dues and his mum's cracklins.

Are your tastes on the wild side? If you have the chance to venture on up to Alaska, you just might be in luck.

iReporter Jack Lanam is a 36 year old U.S. Army Civilian working as a Information Technology Specialist in Fairbanks, Alaska. While he says that city fare in the nation's northernmost state is pretty much the same as anywhere, with outposts of chain restaurants like McDonald's, Burger King, Carl's Jr. and Chili's, further into the wilderness, things get a little gamey. As in big game like moose, bear and reindeer.

National hamburger day (again)

Eagle-eyed readers may note that we already celebrated National Cheeseburger Day in September, National Hamburger Day waaaayyyy back in December and others raise high the burger flag on May 28th. However, while there's a fleck of red tape residue on the process, there's not exactly a federal regulatory agency for food holidays, so we'll go with it as an excuse to get beefy.

The hamburger was invented many greasy, cheesy, meaty decades ago, but exactly when and by whom a matter of hot dispute. Time Magazine's Josh Ozersky asserts in his 2008 book, "The Hamburger: A History" that the modern day incarnation of the formed patty between two halves of a bun is "an American invention" with endless regional variations like the Connecticut steamed cheeseburger, Mississippi slugburger or Oklahoma onion burger.

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

Today will have you melting with joy - July 28 is National Milk Chocolate Day!

If the mere sight or aroma of chocolate tickles your tastebuds, you're not alone. People have been chomping down chocolate on this planet  since 1100 B.C. Columbus may have discovered America, but we'd love to know who brought chocolate to the masses.
