    Some friends and I did the New Orleans Boozy Brunch class and we loved it! Joelen was very nice and knowledgeable; it was also a fun group and we made some great food. I would definitely take a class with her again.

    I decided to take the class based on the menu and the fact that I'm recently gluten free. Joelen did an excellent job of creating an atmosphere that was informative and social.

    This was my second class with Joelen -- I also took the Spanish Tapas class with her-- and these have been two of my favorite Dabble classes so far! The space is great, and Joelen has a wonderful teaching style. I am vegetarian, but Joelen always adapts her classes to those with dietary restrictions so that everyone is able to learn and participate. The groups are small enough where we're able to have good conversation while each getting hands-on experience with the food. Some of the recipes she's taught initially sounded very complicated to me, and I am not at all an expert in the kitchen, but Joelen makes cooking approachable, easy, and fun! I love her drink pairings to match the cuisine as well. Overall both awesome classes, and I'd highly recommend any class with Joelen!
