About this pro

My name is Joseph and I am a greaduate of Kendall College here in Chicago.

I feel it's not just about teaching a class, for me it's about creating a memorable experience. That involves a great personality that adapts to all sorts of people.

I have a wonderful kitchen space in Andersonville as well as an event space in Lakeview.

I LOVE TEACHING. I love entertaining and I love creating magical, memorable experiences for my students. I think outside the box and demand we have a great time doing what we love to do.

    Fantastic instructor and class! Only 5 us in total so very personal experience. Asked lots of questions and our instructor was fun, funny and a pro. Relaxed atmosphere (we drank wine and our instructor made us a snack--pizza!--so we had a blast), great Sunday afternoon. Would love for instructor to teach a sauce class and definitely will consider taking another class with him!

    This was class was a lot of fun! The venue is awesome and we had a lot of fun drinking wine and learning about candles, leaving with a cool candle also. The class was really great and I will definitely be back!

    This was such a great class and a wonderful night! The owners are so friendly and so welcoming!! It's a beautiful atmosphere, with a laid back and, overall, good vibe. We learned a lot, while laughing and eating delicious light appetizers. This was a Valentine's Day date for my fiancé and we had such a nice time! It is definitely not just opened to couples, though! There were groups of friends, mom/daughter dates, etc. We have been recommending it to everyone and definitely will continue to! Thank you so much for offering this class at such a great price!

    What a fun class! We started by selecting the wine we wanted to drink and had the option of finishing that bottle and using it for our candle, or choosing one of the already empty bottles provided. Veggie flatbread pizza was provided (not the greatest) as a light snack. While we drank, Joe and Tommy explained the process, as well as other items that could be made from empties. We proceeded to score and break our bottles in preparation for the candle making. There was chatting and drinking in between. At the end we all had lovely candles, and some of us had new friends with whom to take on the next Dabble adventure.
