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.

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!

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!

Sales Team Event

We hosted our annual sales meeting in Miami and decided to try a Cooking Party with the team. Our party had many different ages and skill levels, but everyone loved the event and the food turned out delicious. The space is amazing and our Chef, Pablo was entertaining and accomodating. I would highly recommend a Real Food Academy party for any group.
- Aaron Henneger


Everyone loved the food event! They were super happy and said it was different to the typical drinking events that everyone else hosts. We even had people that didn’t attend the event come to us the next day saying that they heard about it and it sounded amazing!
- sandie anders

Amazing place!

We attended an event that my company hosted. The space was clean, well lit, very well designed, and everything was arranged when we got there. We were served the wine we brought (they have a nice wine selection also), were taken to our table, and the cooking began! We made caprese salad and raviolis from scratch. The entire process was assisted by our chef, who was very nice, and it was very easy and enjoyable. Then we had delicious chocolate melting cake for dessert. Everyone enjoyed themselves and we had a blast. This is a great place for a party event or even a date night. I highly recommend it!
- Grettel

Great Experience

I am so glad to have stumbled upon this! It was so easy to book/set up and communicate any changes as needed. The team also had such a great time day of making delicious latin food. Definitely recommend this for any group!
- Amanda Van Ness

Awesome team-building experience!

The perfect place for a team-building activity or fun night out with friends! Our company did a private cooking class with Maria and her team and we had an awesome time. The food was phenomenal and they take the time to tell you how to make everything at home! We also added on karaoke and had a blast. Highly recommend trying it out for yourself!
- Alison Sullivan


We had an event at The Real Food Academy and all that attended absolutely loved it! Great food, great time, and Maria and the staff were just the absolute best. definitely recommend checking it out!

Amazing place to party!

I’ve celebrated with my friend our Bday party and had 24 guests. We were looking for something special and didn’t want to spend another night in a restaurant when you can’t really enjoy your guests. We have had the best time at the real food academy. We cooked, dance, sing and learned some new tricks in the kitchen. The chef was super nice and the hosting and preparation were amazing! Food was fresh, delicious and we all had a great time. I highly recommend it!!
- Hila Zamir

Super fun business event

Everything about this was superb. Our chef, Giovanni, was so fun and professional. Coordinating a group of 20 people is not super easy, and he did it perfectly, kept us on schedule, and gave us easy and clear instructions. The music was great, the drinks were great. I couldn't say enough positive things about this experience. Bravo.
- Lauren Moore

Best Cooking Party Ever!

This was a first for us and I was very impressed. We had a party of 14 and everyone was very satisfied. The instructors were patient and very detailed. The food was amazing and the ambiance was super! Thanks for a wonderful experience!
- Kim

Events Specialist

The event was a complete success! Everyone had a great time and truly enjoyed the activities and the service. The only feedback was that in between the entrees, the attendees were hungry, so perhaps an opportunity to add some snacks in between would be good. Also, perhaps adding video with TV monitors throughout the event space would be a good idea, so that all the people seated around the tables can watch the Chef do the demos.
- Alicia Vigil Blanco

Great Time!

An incredible experience!

Our company went to the Real Food Academy for a team building event and it completely exceeded our expectations. Maria was a wonderful teacher, very accommodating to our group (dietary restrictions, etc.) and we had an incredible time. We danced, we cooked, we ate - everyone absolutely loved it. Thank you for the perfect experience!
- Victoria


Our group of very erudite (picky) women were overwhelming in thier praise and enthusiasm. You did a bang-up job and were very patient with our chatty group. I am sure the wine contributed to all the noise! We had the very best time. Loved your facility and professionalism. And we will definitely be back! Sending hugs!
- Suzy Moore

Perfectly Done

Hey Maria, wanted to let you know this was our 2nd year hosting the company Christmas Party with you and the team. New location is great, Chef Veronica was perfect and the food was delicious. Sorry we didn't get to see you this year but again Chef Veronica was perfect. Only complaint is your new corkage fee but I get it, business is business :)!
- Mike Castillo

Beyond Expectation

We wanted to try something different for our end of the year Holiday party. Let me tell you that, "Chef Maria and her team" blew our minds. Everyone in our group was extremely happy and engaging; we all wanted to have this experience as a team building one and we had an amazing time. Everyone said that this was the best Holiday party that our company has ever had. If it was not for Chef Maria and her team, it would be another year of dinner, however; this was not the case. We had an experience that I am proud to say, well done.
- Guerline Prophete

"Had a great time!"

Had a great time. I thought we were going to get a copy of the recipes and then I left without them. Making fresh pasta was a blast. I thought it would be so difficult but it is actually something I can do and I'm so excited about it. Chef Maria is the best.
- Andrea Gellert

Omg love this new place!

" we cooked was actually SPECTACULAR"

I cannot express how happy our team was with the event. I truly was a blast. Everything was done first class. Organization and planning was really easy and the food we cooked was actually SPECTACULAR. We would do it again in a heartbeat.

One of my best birthday's ever!!!

This has been on my birthday bucket list for the past 2 years but I've never felt comfortable picking the right place. My sister recommended the Real Food Academy and after seeing all the great reviews I decided to book it. I had a group of 13 close family and friends and we had an incredible time. The music, energy, food and Chef Veronica was so patient and wonderful. The Italian cuisine was delicious...I can't say enough about this place. I'm planning on taking my kids to one of their classes. I think it's something everyone should try.
- Candy Caboverde

Awesome and creative!

Thank you to Chef Maria! This is the second birthday party that we celebrate at the Real Food Academy. The first one was for my 4 year old. This is a super fun, original, and different way of celebrating. All my guest were so impressed with the idea, the venue, not to mention the food. The environment is just perfect, I talked to my guests while preparing or waiting for our food, and have fun making it! I really had a great time!
- Ruth Eleonora Luchnick


Maria exceeded our expectations. First, the space is open, airy with great energy. We had a couple of non cooks in the group and the teaching style Maria exhibited was simple, clear and concise. The food was absolutely delicious! We could not believe we "made gourmet" food. Thank you Chef Maria
- Andrea Ferguson
