Adult Cooking Parties at The Real Food Academy

The Real Food Academy Is Dedicated To Making Your Special Event An Unforgettable One!

Cooking for your guests can be a pain, but cooking with your guests is a party! Let our team at The Real Food Academy help you throw an adult cooking party in Miami at our beautiful event space. Just let us know the time and date, how many guests you expect, which menu you’d like, and we’ll take care of the rest! There are three different menu packages available; the Latin, Asian, and Italian, each featuring four customizable courses. Every delicious option has been personally assembled by executive chef Maria Cummins to be as fun and satisfying to cook as it is to enjoy. Chef Maria uses only fresh, all-natural ingredients in her recipes, ensuring that your body enjoys the meal just as much as your taste buds!

The best part about our Miami cooking parties for adults is that we give our clients a chance to actually enjoy their own party. You’ll never have to worry that your guests aren’t socializing, entertained, or keeping up with the preparation.
All of our adult cooking parties in Miami are lively, interactive, and have been especially designed to accommodate chefs of all skills levels, so the whole room is always involved. Between courses, you are more than welcome to add your own personal touches to the evening, adding everything from cakes to karaoke machines so your party goes just the way you want.

Great experience and wonderful staff. We had a blast!
We had my daughters 10th birthday over the weekend and everyone had a wonderful time. The girls were fully engaged and gave rave reviews of how fun it was. We had 34 girls and there’s still space for more if you need and also can be a small group. The location can accommodate your party. The place is beautiful with the high ceilings and the open kitchen.
Kid’s Birthday Party- Amazing staff! They are always asking, if you need anything? Is everything okay? Can we help you with anything? Amazing party, amazing food, amazing people, the kids had fun, even the parents had fun and the party was not for them because it is for the kids. I booked my party due to the recommendations. I’ve never been to this place before, I booked my party based on the online recommendations. I showed up for my child’s party and the recommendations were right on the money. I was not disappointed! I will come back and the parents told me they will come back and book a party here as well! Great job!!
The venue has the ambiance of a fine dining restaurant, and Chef Maria makes it fun and easy to prepare delicious meals with great detail & care.
The Indian class was a truly special experience. I kearned how to use exotic Indian spices, & I felt empowered making samosas!
Highly recommend!
So much fun! Maria the Chef and her staff are a great team. Terrific hands on experience. Perfect for groups.
Very friendly atmosphere!!!! Recommend!!!
I took my girls to the Saturday, April 16th cooking class and both of them absolutely loved it! It was completely hands on, from chopping their own vegetables, to rolling their own dough. It was a huge step up from other classes they have attended. I highly recommend trying one of their classes. My girls can’t wait to go back!
Mucha Gracias

An event to remember !

Chef was fantastic and provided a high quality experience for our 9 year old’s birthday party. Everyone had a blast
Amazing field trip

We had a wonderful field trip for a homeschool group of 40 kids. The food was amazing, the educational portion was awesome and the chefs were efficient and fun! Thank you so much! Kids are asking to plan another one!
Had a great time! Chef Maria is awesome!
Place does not disappoint. Great food great atmosphere

Spoke to Arthur (owner) ahead of the party … he said “you don’t need to bring anything, we’ve got this!”…. And they sure did! He was amazing in running the party - there was not a moment where kids were wondering what to do! The instructions on how to make pasta were clear, the fun playing while they were cooking was increíble! The food was delish, the girls had a blast! The waffle towers were delicious! Highly recommend The Real Food Academy!!! My 10 year old and her 14 friends are still talking about it!!!! Thank you so much for such a special and effortless celebration for mom! You guys are the best!

cooking class was excellent
Amazing place, great staff. The children's camp is awesome for teens as well. Kiddo is happy, learning and having fun! Highly recommended!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I was hesitant to send my 13 y/o daughter anywhere due to COVID but temperature checks were taken seriously, social distancing took place, plenty of space & limited # of campers and masks at all times gave me comfort. My daughter had such a great time she is signing up for another week! In the mean time we bought the ingredients to all the healthy, yummy items she made!
Lo cocinar lo que vamos a comer...😋😋 Excelente la atención!
awesome experience for the kids.
Good, wholesome, and constructive time for the kids. The location has ample space and Chef Maria is awesome. My 11 year old daughter has been 3 times and loves it.
The people there was super nice and I like how the chefs would explain everything to the kids, especially when handling sharp objects.
Everything about The Real Food Academy is great. The staff, the place, the cleanliness, the recipes, the cafè…Our 5-year-old loved coming here for their Summer Camp. Between cooking and other activities, days hit the perfect balance of life skills and fun. We will definitely come back!
We had a team event last night! Chef Maria was awesome, and patient. Great time had by all!

About Our Adult Cooking Parties

Birthday party

We had a great time for my daughter’s 18th birthday. We had the whole place to ourselves. It was clean and the food was delicious. The girls all had a really good time.
- Ali Lesser

Super Fun Culinary Birthday Party!

We had an amazing time at the culinary class, which I booked to celebrate my birthday as something outside of the box and unique. We had about 19 people and had ample space to chat and welcome everyone before we started. We all had a blast, learning step by step with the instructor for the salad, appetizer and entree, and we all loved that it was completely hands-on. We all were involved in the process and my favorite part was making the pasta! We all laughed and mingled and had a great soundtrack all night. There was an abundance of food and it was satisfying to eat everything that we created. The staff was excellent and very helpful - many thanks for making this a wonderful birthday event!
- Sandra

Amazing place!

If I could give this place more stars I would! I had my birthday party here and it was more than perfect! Chef Pablo and bartender William were absolutely amazing! They had so much patience with 24 of us and made sure my party was perfect! The cooking was so fun and they did an awesome job setting it all up so quickly. The food was absolutely delicious! All the guests loved this idea! I highly highly recommend this place. Thank you Maria and team for a wonderful birthday experience that I will never forget!
