iReporter ChrisMorrow caught up with Buddy Valastro, better known as TLC's "Cake Boss," on the red carpet of the Women's Conference in Long Beach, California. Turns out, his dear ol’ dad deserves all the credit for his mad baking skills, that he can whip up a mean truffle risotto and that baking isn't for the unscientific.

Paula Deen was in the building taping Saturday's episode of Your $$$$$ (1 p.m. ET), so we just followed the wafting scent of butter 'til we found her and captured her on our Flip Cam.

There's plenty more to come, including her plea of innocence on the charge of "butter crimes" and why Frank Stitt oughta "shut up" on the topic of shrimp 'n grits, but for now, here's her take on why the most "romantical" meal includes "bone sucking."

iReporter Joshua Estrin has some pretty fancy friends, including Top Chef Masters contestant and MasterChef Judge Graham Elliot of Graham Elliot restaurant in Chicago. Elliot's dad - a Navy diver who sounds like the coolest guy ever, would add food coloring to bowls of pancake batter so the family could sit down to a rainbow feast. And it didn't stop there.

Q & A part 2: Anthony Bourdain talks food love and family meals

Previously, Anthony Bourdain discussed his return to Beirut after having had to leave in the middle of filming to escape the war between Hezbollah and Israel. Today, he talks family dinner and the food that makes him get misty.

Nicole Dow: Who taught you to love food?

Anthony Bourdain: You either do or you don't. It's like appreciating music. I can't imagine anyone who is unmoved by beautiful music. Something you learn to love early, it resonates, not something I thought about. Whether or not it's important, it always was. I was aware of food from a pretty early age.

See who taught Mario Batali to love food.

ND: Did you grow up eating dinner with your family, and do you continue that with your family now?

Bourdain: I did grow up in a very traditional – like "Mad Men,", that era of the family meal. We would go out to dinner in New York sometimes on weekends. To their credit, my parents went out of their way to change it up – Japanese, French, Chinese. These days I travel so much, my family travels with me sometimes. The family meal, when we are all in NY together, yes we eat together. It's all a rare joy for me. I like cooking for my family, and ordering in pizza is fun too.

My daughter, Ariane, she is very good in restaurants. She is three years old. Never cries, never makes a scene. She can be in a French brasserie, eat oysters, sit and enjoy herself

Did your family sit down to dinner together? Share your story on iReport.

ND: What is the last meal you had that made you cry?

Bourdain: Every time I have that first bowl of pho' in Vietnam, I tear up a little.

A couple of weeks ago, we asked via iReport for your stories of that person, place, book, restaurant or dish that made you sit up and start to see food as more than just a three times a day chore. You eat every day, and you've got a story to share.

You may recognize the gentleman in the video below from a little thing called the Food Network. Don't have cable? How about cookbooks like 'Molto Italiano,' 'Simple Italian Food: Recipes from My Two Villages' and 'Mario Tailgates NASCAR Style' or restaurants like New York City's Babbo, Esca, Lupa and Otto, Las Vegas' B&B Ristorante and Carnevino or Los Angeles' Osteria Mozza and Pizzeria Mozza? Not ringing a bell? Even the charitable Mario Batali Foundation or series of brightly hued cookware?

Okay, he's the red-headed dude in the omnipresent orange Crocs, star of the upcoming film 'Bitter Feast' and we managed to grab a few minutes with him at the Mario Batali Foundation's T-Bones & Tequila Event at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen. Consider this clip an appetizer.
