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

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 novedoso...de 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!

We developed the prepaid package to help save a family some money.  If you have one kid who's coming to cooking class all the time, or if you have more than one kid. We know that can become costly, so we created the package. Not for friends, sorry.

No.  All Payments and Deposits are non-refundable: When a payment or deposit is made, that day and time is no longer available to other customers on our calendar. For that reason, all payments and deposits are non-refundable.

In the case of a cooking class, the ingredients are shopped for and prepped in advance.  Staff is also scheduled according to the number of people on the roster.

We are located at 570 NE 81st Street, Miami, FL 33138 (map)

All the recipes prepared at The Real Food Academy are easily accessible from our website at https://therealfoodacademy.net/our-recipes/

You can simply type the name of the recipe in the search field to find the recipe your are looking for. If you can't remember the exact name...no problem. Just type in the main ingredient and you will quickly receive a list of all the recipes that include that main ingredient.

If for some reason you require a printed copy of the recipe, please request it from the chef and they will happily provide it to you.

Yes, you still need to register for each class. When you purchase a package of classes, you are essentially purchasing credits to be deducted from each class you book. In the case of the kids classes you are purchasing 10 credits and for adult classes you are purchasing 4 credits.

The first step is to purchase the credits and the second step is to use the credits.

So step #1 is purchase credits

Step #2 is choose the class you want to attend and book that class as you would normally do. The difference will be that you will not be asked for a credit card payment. You will simply deduct 1 credit from your Real Food Academy balance.

More importantly, purchasing a package of classes tells us only that you've bought a block of credits. We still you to tell us WHEN you are coming to class. Then and only then will we know the details of you or your child and most importantly whether or not your child has any food allergies.

This is why you need to register online for each class.

Yes, One thing! If your child has long hair, please have it pulled back and tied up neatly and pulled out of the face of your child upon arriving to class!

NO

We are not limited to any one cuisine. Every week we prepare your kids favorite foods! It may be Italian one week, American the next week, Asian, Latin and more. No matter the cuisine, you can always count on us showing your kids how to prepare their favorite foods in the most health way!

No.  Parents are invited to hang out in the cafe and enjoy a delicious breakfast, coffee, or even a mimosa!   

We insist on this rule because your child needs to focus on the instructor.  Parents can be very distracting to their children, which is not safe in many cases.  Also, believe it or not, your child behaves MUCH better when Mom or Dad is not around!  Please trust us on this one.

Your child will have a far better experience if you are not in the classroom.  You will be invited into the classroom at the end of the class.  That is when you can take pictures and when your child will have the opportunity to tell you all about their great creation. You will even have a chance to sample what they made. 

We thank you in advance for respecting this rule. :)

All registrations for Saturday class are done through our on-line calendar.  This will provide us the information we need in advance to be properly prepared for the class.  Sorry..no walk-ins.

We are surrounded by lots of free parking.  However, do not park in the CVS parking lot.  You may be towed if you do.  Also, if you park on the street you need to use the paybyphone app.

Can I Have a Cooking Class?

★★★★★
After attending a birthday party at the RFA, my daughter takes every opportunity to return for more classes. Saturday cooking class is the one activity that consistently interests her. She gets great satisfaction from preparing the meals and then making them for her family at home. Looking forward to additional locations closer to our home, but the drive is totally worth it.

Magic

★★★★★
Today when I saw my daughter clapping her hands I knew that was a sign of a satisfactory accomplishment. She was so into the class. The praises from the chefs encouraged her confidence and motivated her to want know more. My daughter has Asperger Syndrome and it’s difficult for her socially. However, the smiles and claps from her today was simply priceless. Thank you.
- Marie ST

If your child loves to eat and have fun, we want them enrolled in our Saturday cooking classes in Miami for kids! Every Saturday, your kids will come home with big smiles on their faces and be little bit more knowledgeable about how to distinguish “real food” from “food-like” products. We only use all natural and healthy ingredients in every dish, hence our slogan: "We Don't Change the Dish....We Change the Ingredients!" The menus for our kid-friendly weekend cooking classes are designed to re-introduce your child to some of their favorite meals but with healthy alternatives.

We call this the "secret ingredient method", which helps kids make food breakthroughs that have them saying, "I Tried and I Liked It". Our Saturday cooking classes in Miami for kids have taught us that when youth are involved in the preparation of their own meal, they will try—and actually like—foods they would not have otherwise given a chance.
Some parents wait for their little chefs-in-training at the brand-new café just steps away from our Saturday culinary classes in Miami. Enjoy a healthy bite to eat or a delicious espresso before you see what your child has created this time!
