In August, ‘Culinary Journeys’ explores Japan's rich history of hospitality with two Michelin-star chef, Shinobu Namae (pictured).
One of the traditions at the heart of Japanese hospitality is the tea ceremony. Namae has introduced this ritual at his own Tokyo restaurant, L'Effervescence, and he meets with a tea master to understand the significance of this ritual.
‘Culinary Journeys’ travels with Namae to Japan's original capital, Kyoto ,which still remains a cultural cornerstone of the country. Alongside tea producer Marukyu Koyamaen, Namae tastes the highest quality green powdered tea known as Matcha, as he learns about the delicate balance it takes to grow the best tea possible.
As tea is such an integral part of the traditional multicourse meal known as Kaiseki, Namae visits famed chefs Yoshihiro Takahashi and Nakahigashi Hisato to discover how tapping into seasonality is part of creating unforgettable culinary experiences for their guests.
Namae then returns to Tokyo to visit Terada Honke, a sake brewery that has been in operation for more than 300 years. As Namae picnics amongst the rice fields with friends, he honours the ingredients and craftsmanship of Japan with a childhood favourite food and a final cup of Matcha tea.

Axelrod responds to the DNC e-mail leak: Well, it's not the story you want going into a - into the week. And, you know, Debbie Wasserman Schultz has worked very hard for a long time in this job, but she's going to have to make a decision as to whether she wants to be a distraction or not. And I'm sure there are people who are talking to her about that. I think that this, by the end of the week, will not have been the story. But at a time when they're trying to bring the party together, bring the Bernie Sanders people on board, this is not a helpful - a helpful development. [TAPPER] What would you tell them to do? If you were senior adviser to Hillary Clinton, which you are not, what - what needs to be done? Does she need to resign or does she need to apologize and fire those people that wrote those emails? What? [AXELROD] I would… [TAPPER] What's the solution? [AXELROD] - I would ask her to step aside. I would ask her to step aside, because she's a distraction on a week that is Hillary Clinton's week. So, yes, I would - I would ask her to.
Today on CNN’s State of the Union, Jeff Weaver, Senator Bernie Sanders campaign manager, joins anchor, Jake Tapper to discuss repercussions of the recent DNC e-mail leak, repercussions and more.

Weaver on DNC e-mail leak: [TAPPER] I'm - I don't know about you, but these e-mails are pretty stunning. [WEAVER] They are stunning. And it's very, very disappointing that you see, in black and white, how top officials at the DNC were plotting to put negative stories out about Senator Sanders, about how they planned to attack him on his religion. It's really - I mean, that's just not what the Democratic Party is about.
Weaver responds to DNC e-mails plotting to leak stories about Sanders to the press: [TAPPER] The chief financial officer, Tom Marshall, I think is his name, was the one talking about the religion, and whether Bernie was Jewish or believed in God, or was an atheist or whatever, and how that might help Hillary, presumably, win voters in Kentucky and West Virginia….Is there any evidence that any of these plots actually went to were reporters and were pitched as stories? [WEAVER] Well, it's hard to know, because, as you know, a lot of time reporters get off the record documents and they're loath to give up their sources. So it's difficult to document when these things happen. But what is really very disturbing is that you had not only the CFO but you had the top staffer at the DNC, Amy Dacey, responding to that whole chain with the word, "Amen." So it was clearly from the top - you know, all the top people were involved and it's very disappointing. And I think, you know, it's great that Debbie Wasserman Schultz is not going to be speaking here, but, look, we saw in the Republican convention, we spent 48 hours with a drip, drip, drip as they refused to deal with the fact that Mrs. Trump had obviously lifted some lines from Michelle Obama's speech. I think that we should show, as Democrats, that we're more mature than that. There's obviously a problem here. Someone should resign. It should be - Debbie Wasserman Schultz should resign. Maybe some staffers should resign. We're just going to pull the Band-aid off this, get past it. I mean, there's likely to be more e-mails released in the next couple days, and I'm sure there other time periods in the campaign - which you're aware of, like the data breach time period - where there was a lot of tension. I'm sure those e-mails will be even worse.
