Headed to Spain in September. Love Pastry Chef Paco Torreblaca's books. Does he have any pastry shops? or Classes in Spain? Currently, going to Barcelona, Granada, Seville, Madrid, but am willing to add another city if necessary to experience his work up close.
He used to have a shop in Madrid at calle Juan Bravo and Lagasca... but looking on the website, it seems to have closed (yikes, ¡qué pena! I didn't realize it was gone). Here's the list of current stores (all far from the places you are visiting):
Monóvar (Pastelería Totel)
The El Corte Inglés gourmet stores (like the one in Madrid in the basement at the Preciados location) often carry his chocolate panettones.
Here's his site:
