Anthony Bourdain and Eric Ripert talk food porn with Martha

On Tuesday, bad-boy chef Anthony Bourdain and Le Bernardin's Eric Ripert did a spot on the Martha Stewart Show to promote their new Sirius Radio program, 'Turn and Burn', which launches Thursday.

In addition to preparing coq au vin, Bourdain and Ripert shared their most sensual food memories--in as explicit verbiage as they could without making Martha blush, of course.

'Turn and Burn' will attempt to bring the ever-popular food porn genre onto the radio, and will also cover topics such as sustainability, at-home cooking and food ethics. The duo will host celebrity guests on the show, the first of which will be none other than famed restaurateur, chef and TV personality Mario Batali.

Bourdain and Ripert will air on Martha Stewart Radio from 10:00 –11:00 pm PT every Thursday on Sirius channel 112 and XM channel 157 through March 18.

The partnership between Stewart and Bourdain may come as a surprise to Bourdain's followers: He has been abundantly vocal about his dislike for what he considers to be highfalutin folks like Alice Waters, whose demeanor isn't too far from Stewart's. But perhaps he admires "M. Diddy's" tougher side for spending some time in the slammer. Anyone with a prison nickname deserves some props, right?

Hmmmm, I wonder if they'll ever invite Sandra Lee on the show.

I'll bet Martha's wayyyy tougher than Anthony.

How truly boring and trivial food becomes in the hands of celebrity!
