    I attended the macaron class with Joelen a few weeks ago, and it was a fabulous experience at a fantastic venue. Not only do you walk out with a box of delicious macarons at the end of the class but you also learn a few tricks of the trade to make these very temperamental delights at home.

    Had a great time! The macaroons were amazing and delicious. They are known for being difficult to make but Joelen made it as easy as possible for all. Really fun way to spend a Saturday!

    This was a fantastic class. Joelen is an outstanding instructor. She made us all feel at home, demystified the process of making French Macaron, and gave us very affirming feedback was we went through the hands-on learning process. The class size was perfect. I would highly recommend any of her classes.

    I loved that the class was small so it could be a little more one on one. Unfortunately the humidity in the kitchen wouldn't allow the macarons to rise, but they still tasted great!

    The French Macaroon class was a lot of fun. The weather conditions didn't allow for the prettiest macaroons, but they sure were tasty. Joelen did a very good job at explaining the technique and making the DIY part of the class easy.
