Coming up this evening at 9, "Piers Morgan Live" sets the table with another fascinating – and in many way delicious – edition of "Guest Host Week," as celebrity chef and television personality Anthony Bourdain writes his own menu, and as always, candor and humor are the specials of the day.

5@5 is a food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors, and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe.

Editor's note: David George Gordon is the author of "The Eat-a-Bug Cookbook Revised." Follow him on Twitter @thebugchef.

A recent report from the United Nations-sponsored Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) states that bug eating could be an effective way to defeat global hunger and combat climate change.

The report got a mixed reception from the press. For the most part, they, like many North Americans, regard insects as dirty, disease-ridden and gross. Although the report’s key findings made perfect sense, many reporters balked at the thought of making meals out of crickets, ants or grasshoppers. [Editor's note: Not us.]

Editor's Note: This evening Anthony Bourdain fills in for Piers Morgan, hosting a live show, at 9 p.m. ET on CNN.

The summer of 2013 will be remembered for a few things: Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” the birth of a royal baby and Cronuts.

Since Cronuts hit the market in May, dessert aficionados have lined up outside Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York City - even before sunrise - for their chance to snag two of the croissant-doughnut hybrids.

The Cronut even made its way through New York's other impossibly long line for the Museum of Modern Art’s Rain Room.

But in spite of the year’s great Cronut craze, Dominique Ansel wants you to know that he is more than just the "Cronut guy." Tonight, Ansel will set the record straight with guest host and Cronut virgin Anthony Bourdain on Piers Morgan Live, along with chef superstars Mario Batali and Eric Ripert.
