Morcheeba cook up a track with Anthony Bourdain: Airs tonight on the Travel Channel.

Besides being the executive chef at Brasserie Les Halles in New York and an accomplished author of eight books, Anthony Bourdain is one of the most wry and witty personalities in the world of cooking 

In 2000, Bourdain gained recognition for his book Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly . Bourdain’s second venture into television debuted in July 2005 when Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations premiered on the Travel Channel. The show chronicles Bourdain as he visits exotic countries and cities worldwide and is treated to local culture and cuisine, such as he does when he visits the UK and partners up with Paul Godfrey of Morcheeba to collaborate on the track titled "Lisa" which is now on the album.

Anthony Bourdain also considers himself a music connoisseur and enthusiast. He dedicated his 2006 writing effort, The Nasty Bits, to the Ramones. Bourdain also used this book as a platform to express his love for the punk band The Stooges and offer his scathing disapproval of music by Billy Joel and ABBA. He states that playing tunes from these artists in the kitchen would result in an instant dismissal. 
 He's a big fan of Morcheeba!
