CNN International's acclaimed cook-centric programme ‘Culinary Journeys’ evolves in 2016 as it embarks on a new series of mouth-watering adventures.

Shot in stunning locations spanning the continents, ‘Culinary Journeys’ heads for destinations renowned for their unique brand of hospitality.

The first show of the new series features Philippines’ chef Margarita Forés, recently voted 2016 Asia's Best Female Chef.

Filipino food is rarely mentioned amongst the stars of Asia's culinary scene, but Forés is determined to change perceptions – one dish at a time. ‘Culinary Journeys’ follows Forés on her quest as she invites viewers to learn about a new side of Filipino food.

Starting in the Philippines capital, Manila, Forés walks through the market where her passion for food was first formed. The chef’s efforts in pushing the possibilities of Filipino ingredients are evident in the restaurant ‘Grace Park’, which is part of Forés’ culinary empire in the capital.

The real journey starts when Forés takes ‘Culinary Journeys’ down to Negros, the island where she spent her childhood summers amongst the sugar cane fields: Forés shows how the local cuisine was born out of its sweetest crop creating some of the Philippines' best desserts, and how its harbours have attracted Latin American flavours.

Over the course of her 30-year career, Forés has prepared dinners for three Philippine presidents, Spanish royals as well as US Presidents George Bush and Barack Obama. Forés’ culinary journey culminates with her hosting a meal back at her ancestral home in Manila, where she shares the best of the Philippines with family and friends.

CNN FREEDOM PROJECT: BRIDES FOR SALE

The special two-part series airs week of April 18 on News Stream at 8pm HKT

CNNFBVietchildbride

Imagine if the only way to escape a forced marriage was to abandon your own child. That’s the reality for some Vietnamese young women. Tricked into crossing the border by traffickers, they were sold for marriage to Chinese men. China’s one-child policy has led to a shortage of women and a thirst for Vietnamese brides. CNN International correspondent Alexandra Field speaks to escapees about their ordeal and goes to the border to see just how easy it is to smuggle women between the two countries.

Five girls… saved just in the nick of time. At a government support center on the Vietnamese-Chinese border, CNN’s Alexandra Field meets five 14-year-old girls saved by the police as traffickers were taking them across the border. She explains how they were lured into danger and sees an emotional reunion between a mother and daughter who were not so lucky.

These two special CNN Freedom Project stories air week of April 18 on News Stream at 8pm HKT.

Taking on the "too big to fail"

Bearing the responsibilities of Fed Chair

 

TEXT HIGHLIGHTS

 

Janet Yellen (Federal Reserve Chair 2014-present) do today's big banks need to broken up?: [ZAKARIA] One of the regional Fed chairs, Neel Kashkari, made a speech very recently in which he said the big banks need to be broken up. Do they? [YELLEN] Well, we have been very focused since the financial crisis and Dodd - the Dodd-Frank Act has directed us to pay attention and try to put in place policies that will deal with too big to fail. So we certainly - I certainly share President Kashkari's concern with too big to fail. I feel more positive on the progress that we've made.  First of all, we have put in place policies through supervision and regulation that has greatly enhanced the safety and soundness of the banking system. And so we have more capital, higher quality capital, more liquidity. We do rigorous stress tests in our supervision. So, I think the odds of failure of large financial institutions is lower.

 

Ben Bernanke (Federal Reserve Chair 2006-2014) on monetary policy being buffeted by partisan politics: [ZAKARIA] Ben Bernanke, when you adopted your extraordinary measures to save the American economy through this global recession and crisis, you faced a lot of people from what was in a sense your own party - you were appointed by a Republican president - and you had Republican congressmen, Republican senators. You had the Republican governor of Texas saying that you were engaging in treason. How’d that make you feel? [BEN BERNANKE] It didn't make me happy.I - we - you know, I - you described the job as powerful. I think more of the responsibility side. And we had very huge responsibilities, all of us, in different contexts and different events to try to use the power of the Federal Reserve, along with our colleagues and the staff - it's a wonderful institution. There's not a single person or organization. There are a lot of people working together.

But we had, you know, tremendous responsibilities to try to - to try to address these terrible risks. And I think it's a good thing that within - within reason, that the Federal Reserve does have some independence and some room to operate so that, you know, that left the critics the ability just to say what they wanted to say, but we could do what we needed, at least within – as long as we could maintain, you know, the broad support. And that was our - that was our strategy.

So, you know, didn't take the job for, you know, for adulation. And certainly if I had, it wouldn't have worked. But, you know, it - there's really no alternative to doing what has to be done in your best judgment to try to address whatever problem you see.
