Fred Sirieix sets two leading chefs the extraordinary challenge of replicating legendary chocolate snack the Wagon Wheel. The chocolate, biscuit and mallow in these famously oversized treats sound simple. But the secret techniques behind how they’re made prove tricky to crack for chefs Tristan Welch and Cyrus Todiwala. Both chefs need to draw on their decades of fine dining experience as they attempt to replicate the Wagon Wheel’s precise mallow texture, crumbly biscuit, and a chocolate coating which mysteriously doesn’t melt in the hands. After seven days, the chefs cook their replicas head-to-head for a panel of Wagon Wheels bosses. As the chefs grapple with their recipes, Jayde Adams is given a guided tour of the Wagon Wheels factory to reveal how they’re really made.
