When eccentric entrepreneur WILLIE HARCOURT-COOZE first burst onto Channel 4, he whipped audiences up into a chocolate frenzy, consistently drawing in excellent ratings.
Series 1 follows WILLIE, his wife TANIA and their three young children as Willie’s dream to grow his own cocoa beans on his Venezuelan farm and then turn them into premium chocolate at his Devon factory, becomes a reality.
The follow-up series, Willie’s Chocolate Revolution: Raising The Bar, sees Willie’s business expand and his sights set firmly on the confectionery market. Alongside his attempts to produce a flavoursome milk chocolate, he’ll undertake the greater challenge of turning the nation on to real chocolate through a series of stunts and public events. A one-hour Christmas special follows the entire Harcourt-Cooze family as they prepare indulgent chocolate recipes for a huge Christmas Eve party and family Christmas dinner.
Interspersed with drama as Willie risks everything to pursue his goal, Willie’s Wonky Chocolate Factory also features demonstrations of mouth-watering chocolate recipes. A hybrid of adventure, entrepreneurship, travel, cookery and drama.
