‘Culinary Journeys’ in October heads to the rainbow nation for an exploration of South African cuisine with the country’s top chef, Reuben Riffel (pictured, right).

Born and raised in the Western Cape, chef Riffel built an impressive reputation at his harbour-front restaurant, the One&Only before becoming one of the most recognisable faces in the country as a judge on ‘MasterChef South Africa’.

Riffel embarks on a journey for CNN to explore a food tradition which unites people across the country – braai.

Meaning ‘barbecue’ in Afrikaans, this method of cooking over a wood fire is a chance for family and friends to gather over juicy steaks and sausages.

Along the way Riffel visits some of Cape Town’s liveliest food locations – learning the art of shisa nyama (meaning ‘burnt meat’ in Zulu) by working the grills at the famous Mzoli’s before picking up spices and sweet treats in the colourful Bo Kaap neighbourhood.

Riffel also travels beyond the city to visit Renata Coetzee, a food historian and nutritionist who has helped to nurture a garden of indigenous herbs used by the native people of southwestern Africa.

Concluding his journey, Riffel celebrate with a braai in the heart of the Cape Winelands: a true appreciation of friends, food and hospitality.

As the Formula E season concludes in July, ‘Supercharged’, hosted by Nicki Shields (pictured, left), is at the heart of the action as the all-electric motorsport championship is decided by a two-race weekend in London’s Battersea Park.

With just one point between the top two contenders for the second season trophy, this episode of ‘Supercharged’ features both drivers as they prepare for the ultimate showdown.

Brazilian driver Lucas Di Grassi (pictured, right) demonstrates the Formula E Simulator – an important exercise in getting to know the Battersea track before the weekend’s racing, as drivers are unable to practice in advance of the race.

‘Supercharged’ also hears from Sebastien Buemi, who is just one point behind in the driver standings. The Swiss driver explains the art of overtaking in Formula E to the programme, with Buemi seeking to overtake his rivals on the track in Battersea and catch Di Grassi on the driver leaderboard.

Over the course of a season, Formula E transports 200 tonnes over 51000 km – and the sport does this while trying to maintain its green credentials. ‘Supercharged’ examines the logistics of the sport speaking to Formula E’s CEO Alejandro Agag, plus logistics manager Pier-Luigi Ferrari, who explains the size and scale of the operation.

Shields is chauffeured to the London races in full electric style: Mahindra drivers Nick Heidfeld and Bruno Senna pick her up in an E2O car and drive her across London to make it to Battersea Park.

At the circuit, ‘Supercharged’ hears from Sir Richard Branson, who owns the DS Virgin team. Branson tells the programme why electric cars are part of the future of our cities, and why he is such an advocate of Formula E.

One of Branson’s drivers, British-born Sam Bird, takes Shields on a track walk of the Battersea circuit, to explain his strategy for the race. Fighting to hold 3rd place, Bird has everything to drive for on home soil.

CNN International's acclaimed cook-centric programme, ‘Culinary Journeys’ continues in June. The only chef in Scandinavia to be awarded three Michelin stars, Esben Holmboe Bang, takes CNN’s cameras on a voyage of discovery through the landscape and cuisine of Norway.

Scandinavia has become known the world over for leading a fine dining revolution, and Holmboe Bang is part of the culinary vanguard. Though born in Denmark, the chef has adopted Norway as his home, where he seeks to uncover and share flavours buried in the country’s forests and fjords.

Holmboe Bang’s restaurant in Oslo, Maaemo – meaning “Mother Earth” in old Norse – is a tribute to local organic produce where each plate is crafted to reflect the seasons.

As part of his culinary journey, Holmboe Bang travels from his kitchen in Oslo to Nordskot, a small fishing village 300 kilometres inside the Arctic Circle to explore Norway’s biggest treasure: the sea.

Under the midnight sun, he forages along the rugged coastline and dives for clams and urchins with fisherman Roderick Sloan, a key supplier to some of the world’s best restaurants. Holmboe Bang also learns more about the traditional preservation techniques which are essential to locals who endure the harsh winter months.

This journey culminates in a traditional meal with friends and family back in Oslo: a celebration of nature and the best of Norway’s culinary culture and hospitality.
