Torreblanca is a master pastry chef. Some of the best pastry chefs around today have trained in his school in Petrer, Alicante. He also owns several stores, one of which is online.
Torreblanca arrived in Paris at the age of 12. "My father sent me to work at the home of Monsieur Jean Millet, the best baker in France," he says. His stint there instilled in him a work philosophy that he has been practicing for half a century, and now teaches to students at his school. There, with his son Jacobo, he endeavors to pass on "a love for the profession, for the highest quality raw ingredients, and a desire to reinvigorate flavors.In other words, it is the essence of traditional pastry-making, reinvented, while remaining true to its roots."
Torreblanca is a master with an impeccable career, and much more to tell. His name was propelled beyond the culinary world when he was asked to make the wedding cake for Prince Felipe, who is now King of Spain.
