At his three patisseries in Alicante, Chef Torreblanca has been clear about his ambition to design the flavour of chocolate. He is fascinated by the possibilities of blending cocoa with spices from all over the world, as well as with principal Mediterranean ingredients, and has even studied and experimented with the use of extra virgin olive oil to replace cocoa butter, creating chocolates with astonishing smoothness.

Chef Torreblanca has been the recipient of numerous accolades, including the Great Prize of the Gastronomic Academy in 2006 and Best Pastry in Restaurant dessert of Spain in 2004. He is the principal of the International School of Pastry Arts and a member of the International Association Relais Dessert.
