Willie's Chocolate Revolution
Tuesday, 7th April 2009
8pm to 9pm
Part 1 of 3
With Easter just around the corner, millions of Britons will be tucking into mountains of industrially produced chocolate that is high in sugar and fat, and contains little or no actual real chocolate. But chocolate enthusiast, the extravagantly named, Willie Harcourt-Cooze, is back with a new series to show everyone that when it comes to chocolate, we deserve better.
In his previous series for Channel4, Willie's Wonky Chocolate Factory, we followed Willie's successful attempt to get a cocoa estate in Venezuela off the ground and its product into his new factory in Devon, and then finally off to the shops with the end result.
This time around he's looking at producing a mass market chocolate bar to rival the likes of Cadburys and Mars, and also examining whether real chocolate has, as he believe, a real health benefit that the Brits are missing out on as their chocolate is just fat and sugar infested goo.
In this first episode it's off to Spain to see what they think chocolate is: and it's a far cry from the 21% cocoa mass that the British eat. Enthused by his Spanish trip he makes the plans for a mass market bar, and so it's off to Venezuela to look into sourcing extra supplies of the cocoa raw materials. He also introduces researchers at Brunel Univeristy to his idea that cocoa in its purest form has a health benefit, and sets them on their way in their research.
