Spring Camp for Our Daughter Sofia

★★★★★
Our experience with the Spring Camp for our daughter Sofia was truly exceptional. Sofia thoroughly enjoyed every moment spent at the camp. She immersed herself in learning about quality foods and exploring the art of making delicious recipes :) One of the highlights of the camp was the dedicated and talented teachers who guided Sofia throughout her journey. Their expertise, kindness, and passion for teaching left a lasting impression on Sofia. Overall, we couldn't be happier with our experience at the Spring Camp. It provided Sofia with not only valuable knowledge but also unforgettable memories. We are eagerly looking forward to the next camp and the opportunity for Sofia to continue her culinary adventures. Thank you to the organizers and staff for creating such a fantastic and enriching experience for our daughter.

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!

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.

Great camp

★★★★★
My son is 8 years old and he is not a big eater, very conservative, simple dishes, no interest in cooking. This camp was recommended to us by a friend. We had an idea, that working with food, cooking , kitchen kind of experience will help him feel more easy in trying new dishes and new food. My son loved camp, every morning he was rushing to academy, he told us , that he had lots of joy, he liked atmosphere and people. I was very happy to see him being so proud of himself, when he treated us with the food, he’d cooked. Registration process and communication with staff was very easy and smooth. Now I am thinking of taking classes myself.

Excellent and Fun Camp!

I sent my 5 and 7 year old daughters to The Real Food Academy summer camp and they had the absolute best time! They came back home everyday so incredibly excited to tell me about what they learned and what they cooked which included pasta from scratch, various soups, pancakes, omelettes, salads, and hamburgers to name a few. My daughters even recited cooking "rules" to me such as "you can't cut raw chicken and vegetables on the same cutting board" I was so impressed! They had an amazing and fun week at the cooking camp and we look forward to joining again next summer.

Great class!

I’m very adventurous in the kitchen and an avid cook but was always afraid to try fresh pasta.

I’ll be booking more classes for sure!

Best Week of Summer

★★★★★
My daughter is 9 and has gone to Real Food Academy for at least one week during the summer for years now, and it’s always her favorite camp week. She loves the food competition and all the things she does on her own—making dough, cutting all fruit and veggies, etc. she also comes home lecturing us on evils of processed foods. Chef Maria and the staff truly love the children. I highly recommend the camp.
- BEATRIZ

A Fantastic Experience!

★★★★★
My daughter Nia, who is eight years old, absolutely loved every moment of the Real Food Academy Summer Camp. Despite the daily drive from Homestead, FL, it was truly worth it. I cannot express enough how grateful we are for this unique experience. The owner and head chef, Ms. Maria, is a talented chef and a wonderful human being. Her genuine passion for spreading awareness about making and eating real food instead of store-bought processed alternatives shines through in every aspect of the camp. It's truly inspiring to see someone who cares so deeply about the well-being of children and their families. Nia thoroughly enjoyed the hands-on cooking activities, learning about healthy ingredients, and understanding the importance of conscious food choices. The camp provided valuable culinary skills and instilled in her a greater appreciation for natural, wholesome food. The staff at Real Food Academy were professional and supportive and created a warm and welcoming environment for the children. The entire experience was filled with joy, education, and delicious creations. I wholeheartedly recommend the Real Food Academy Summer Camp to parents looking for a unique and enriching summer program for their children. It is an exceptional opportunity to foster a love for cooking, nutrition, and making healthier choices that will last a lifetime. Thank you, Ms. Maria and the entire Real Food Academy team, for making this an unforgettable experience for Nia. We are truly grateful!

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!

Thank you so much to The Real Food academy. Once again, Arthur, Maria, and their staff made such a great impact on our K-5th campers.

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.

Fun, tasty, date night!

★★★★★
We came from Seattle on vacation and the chef was polite and helpful on the phone prior to my booking. The cooking class space was clean, beautiful, spacious enough for the large group, and the staff were polite and professional. Everyone was talkative and helpful to each other and the chef's uplifting personality set a good tone of fun for us all. The cooking instructions were clear and even I was able to make pretty and tasty food (even though at home I burn most things). It was a great experience and made for an enjoyable date (and those coming alone also had a great time). I would recommend both locals and vacationers make time to improve themselves and have fun at one of their classes!
- Philip

A huge thank you!!!

★★★★★
We thank you for an incredible Birthday party for our son, he turned 6! The event was very stylish, unusual, interesting and rewarding for the kids! All the children were involved in the cooking process. Even the littlest ones were happy to get dirty and have fun with their friends! Thank you so much to your team for being able to organize the whole process, especially when there are a lot of kids, it's very challenging! The parents were able to socialize and get to know each other, drink wine, and help themselves to snacks. Isn't that the perfect children's party? :) After eating all the treats the kids made, there was a magician who just delighted all the kids! Once again, a huge thank you for offering such a non-standard solution for events for children and adults! Your business makes people happier!

We love teaching our son the lesson of experiences and sharing food among friends and family, Lessons they will have forever!

Comfortable in the Kitche

★★★★★
My daughter who is in her tween started with The Real Food Academy about 2 years ago. I am appreciative of the confidence she developed in the kitchen. She can prepare and concoct her own food which are good enough. Only thing is she leaves me all the dishes and the cleaning up. I will send a note next time that she is allowed to help clean up after after the class.

Unique Family Experience

★★★★★
We were debating on what to do during these pandemic times so that our daughter may have a nice experience on her birthday. We made an excellent choice with The Real Food Academy. From planning through the actual event, everything was properly thought out, hosted and executed. Art and Maria were welcoming and patient as we set out to socially distance 19 guests per family unit. I couldn't ask for a more memorable experience for my daughter's 9th birthday. The adults had just as much fun as the kids! From start to finish, it was actually her favorite birthday to date! Thanks RFA Team!

I truly had a wonderful time, the staff is great, the quality time is priceless and best of all I got my daughter to try new thing and I got great tip for future healthy and delicious options in the kitchen.

Little Chef in the Making!

Our 9 year old son has been eager to participate in the kitchen, but my lack of patience and willingness to accept the mess and mistakes made it very difficult. Summer Camp at the RFA has given him the skills, discipline and creativity to flourish.

This weekend he offered to help me in the kitchen and I could already Notice a big difference in his approach. Our little Chef in the making, we are so proud!

Educational and fun!

★★★★★
My daughter attended camp for one week at the Real Food Academy. She had a great time and learned a lot of new concepts not only about cooking and baking but about nutrition and health. This experience has given her the opportunity to become more independent about her food consumption and to making healthier choices when it comes to food. She now enjoys creating new salads and using fresh and healthy ingredients in her dishes. I highly recommend the experience here!

Happy we chose this camp!

My kids are fairly shy and were skeptical. My youngest had no interest to try this camp. But I am happy to say both my sons enjoyed it and came home happy to share about all they learned. It was a great choice and I will sign them up again. Also, good to note it was during Covid times and they were very clean and took the health of the kids seriously.

And lastly, thank you for taking COVID-19 concerns so seriously, us moms truly appreciate it. We will definitely see you in the future. Thank you again, Marlene Valdes

Great learning camp!

★★★★★
My 9 year old daughter loved this camp! She not only learned how to prepare meals, they also teach the kids how to eat right and how to read labels. The only negative is that some of the foods may be TOO healthy for the kids. Its very Vegan style and not many kids like Veggie burgers. My daughter many times did not eat lunch because meals were not very kid friendly. They should be at least 2 choices for lunch meals.
- Berangely Cid

★★★★★
The Real Food Academy is the best form of a field trip idea. The academy comes to your school and shows the students how to cook and learn about nutrition. The students are engaged in learning as well as listening to music in between. Chef Arthur speaks from the heart about learning what is "Real Food".

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.

Left Class With a Big Smile

★★★★★
My granddaughter is hard to please with activities, so when she left the Saturday morning cooking class with Maria with a big smile and said, “can I go again?” I smiled too. I stayed in the academy during the class, and it was well organized and each group got attention from Maria when needed. When it was time to eat her creations, I was surprised my GD ate a food she has told me repeatedly she doesn’t like. The class gave her a sense of ownership of the food she usually doesn’t experience to that level. The food was nutritious and made in a kid friendly way— texture and flavor profiles. We will be back when she is in town!

last week of cooking summer camp

★★★★★
My daughter loved the camp and she really learned a lot. She especially loved learning how to make ravioli. She did mention that some groups had better experiences than others, depending on the confidence level and experience of each "table chef". That was an interesting comment. Also, you used to provide a cookbook for the children at the end of the week - - what happened? We really wanted to recreate some of the yummy things she made, especially the polvorones (Mexican wedding cookies) and the ravioli, of course! Over all, thanks so much for providing a GREAT program for busy parents.

My son enjoys making pancakes with my husband on the weekends, but this was a special treat for him. As soon as the class was over he pulled me in tight and said, “Mom, thanks for bringing me to this class. Can we come again?” He proceeded to tell the family over dinner that he learned to crack an egg on his own and chop vegetables. Teaching kids to be comfortable and safe in the kitchen with the new skills they learned are valuable life lessons. We will be back in the near future for more cooking classes.

You won't regret it!

★★★★★
My 6 year old son and 8 year old daughter were at a few different camps this summer - this one, The Frost Museum and The Children's Museum. This was by far their favorite. Each day, both kids went into the class excited, and when I picked them up in the afternoon, they were happy and eager to tell me what they did that day. The price of this camp is a bit on the high side but the kids make their own breakfast, snack and lunch each day, so that's a hassle and expense you don't have to worry about. At home, I have noticed that they want to help in the kitchen more and they have become interested in reading food labels and looking for healthy options. And finally, every single time I had a question or concern and called their contact number, the owner, Arthur picked up the phone and addressed my concern. His wife Chef Maria works with the kids. She often followed up in person as well. If you are on the fence, send your kids to this camp. You won't regret it!

I really loved the camp and so did my daughter. My only concern is the amount of sugar and carbs (white flour) they are getting.

The kids had a great time, the parents were free to do as they wished, and everyone was thrilled to have been part of this great experience. Thank you! The one thing i noticed, which was minor, was at times the kids were paying attention, but the adults were loud and would at time drown out the speaker some. Sound could be improved, not for the music but for the instructions and guidance. That is all! Thanks again!

The best party for kids AND for adults

★★★★★
We celebrated our daughter's 5th birthday with 41 of her 5 year-old friends AND 67 adults. I was hesitant at first with 41 5 year old, yet the children were engaged since the minute they arrived. They had activity after activity planned and they never left the table while they created their custom pizzas and decorated their cupcakes. The adults got to sit back, enjoy themselves and watch all the fun happen. Our favorite part of the party was the passing of the microphone where every child shares a birthday wish for the birthday girl. It was sweet to hear the children's honesty, their love and their inclusion for all their friends. Amazing service from Chef Maria and Arthur.

We had an experience that I am proud to say, well done.

AMAZING!!!! That's the only word you need to know when describing The Real Food Academy. My husband and I went for the Valentine's Day dinner and it was truly special. Maria the head Chef made sure to make us feel right at home. She also had a cute little game planned in between the cooking class. It was very fun! AND you can take your own bottle of wine and they provide the glasses! I will definitely be back!

Chef Maria made our experience very fun. You can tell she puts a lot of love and passion into everything she does. Every ingredient we used was high quality, organic, and wholesome. We learned a lot, and can't wait to go back for our next lesson! Thank you, Chef Maria!

Ceriche Workshop

★★★★★
Recently I had the most wonderful, exquisite, delightful, easy and entertaining Ceviche class. The Chef, Maria, is a gracious and wonderful hostess (along with her husband) that helps you feel at ease from the moment you step into her cozy location. It was just an overall experience in terms of what you learn, the quality of products you use, the people you get to meet and the relaxing ambiance. Highly recommend for anyone interested in learning anything about cooking from simply buying quality products, learning or perfecting your skills. Couples, singles or ladies night out it was just relaxing to be among other adults in an evening where I felt like I was invited to this great intimate dinner and be part of the creation in a fun way. Best part, I did it! I really learned in a simple way how to do an exquisite Ceviche!!! Looking forward for other classes or group celebrations. Thank you Maria!

Chef María makes you feel at home

★★★★★
This has been one of the most fun dates I've had in my life. The reason being is because as soon as you walk inside The Real Food Academy, you start to have the Chef experience. You get your apron on, Chef María greets you with her incredible energy and passion. You cant fool anybody, when you have a real passion in life it shows all around. Chef María makes you feel at home, and she delivers the class in a fun, educational and interactive way. The class is hands on and you really get to learn. I was invited to the vegan class and it was wonderful. Next day I went to the supermarket to get some of the ingredients and started trying the new dishes right away. You can also purchase cooking accessories and overall the experience is so much fun and the best part is that you get to eat a ton of food and try new things. Good job Chef María.
- Vivian J.

Highly recommend this to any of our friends and family.

★★★★★
We came to Miami for a Bachelorette party over Thanksgiving and really wanted to have a cooking class as part of our experience. Chef Maria went out of her way to ensure that we could schedule a private class during the holiday. We were hosted by Chef Jamila, who was extremely knowledgeable, welcoming and fun. She's an NYC-educated chef with extensive experience in top international restaurants, which made for great conversation as well. We had selected the Latin Menu and prepared Ceviche, Causa and Paella; all with premium ingredients. It was a pleasure to eat our own creations! Overall, we would highly recommend this to any of our friends and family. Thank you Real Food Academy for this Five-star experience!!

I highly recommend your camp!

★★★★★
Hi there, I just wanted to say how much my granddaughter enjoyed the week she spent in your cooking academy camp. I have already sent several of the pictures to some of my friends with a note that I highly recommend your camp for their grandchildren as well. It was so great to find a hands-on camp, suitable for a wide range of ages, which appeals to all, as well as both males and females. My daughter and I are always looking for an indoor camp, and yours just fit every requirement we have. And … I must add, the food prepared was delicious. My granddaughter Caralee is a picky eater, so the fact that she at least tried some of the recipes was just fine with us. No complaints from us at all, and the flip side of this is that I got to sample some of what she ended up bringing home. And everything was SOOOO good! We look forward to coming again. If you have any weeks in session during winter break time for public schools we are certainly interested. One more thing here. Any chance you could open up another location near Miami Lakes? I am quite sure you would do well in that area. Thanks again,
- Susan Gonzalez

My son was thrilled!

★★★★★
This was a first for our son, who was slightly embarrassed to admit his interest in cooking. But, he was thrilled when he found out we signed him up and went eagerly into camp. Upon pick up, he couldn't stop talking about all of the delicious foods he made! He was so enthusiastic and asked if we owned whisks, a cutting board, a food processor?!? Of course we do, but he had never used them before! Each day he brought home samples of the goodies and loved sharing both the "secret" and healthy ingredients in them. By Friday, he had a whole file of recipes and can't wait to make them for our family! This has been one of the absolute BEST experiences he has ever had. We're just sorry we didn't sign him up for Week 2 until it was too late! Thanks for everything :)

Dear Chef Maria, My children Helaina (age 6) and Joshua (age 3) have so enjoyed your cooking classes this school year! They even battle over who gets to go to cooking on a particular day. It is so fun to see them learn about nutrition, manners, and different cultures, while at the same time creating something they can be proud of and enjoy eating too. I feel like we have traveled around the world with your international menu and age-appropriate dishes. Thank you for making learning so fun and delicious!

Dear Chef Maria: Since Natalija had her 8th birthday party with you I have non stop been spreading the word! Natalija and her friends had a blast. Most of all, they actually enjoyed the final products. The pizza on a stick was a hit. You surprised me at the end when you had the "cooking trivia" and the girls won little pink spatulas and pink whisks! That was a wonderful added touch. We look forward to seeing you at your cooking classes in the near future! Thank you!

Even though I cook and am a Nutrition coach, I learnt a lot about preparing healthy food, it was a great atmosphere, the place is super clean and cozy, I learnt a lot of skills.

Meghan's 7th Birthday was amazing! The Chef did an awesome job with the kids as did the assistant chefs. They were super excited to make Fettucine Alfredo and then to eat their own cooking :-) We, adults and kids both, had a great time at the party and we are so glad we came to the Real Food Academy. The addition of Zumba was a great choice. The Zumba instructor, Wendy, was super high energy and she was just great with the kids! The Zumba helped us end our party on a very high note!!! and the kids and parents just had this great release of euphoric energy to end the party in a fantastic way! Honestly, it was the best party yet and all of our guests seemed to also enjoy it! We'll be back for Summer Camp -- with friends! --

What a wonderful place to host your next cooking gathering. Some of my guest plan on hosting an adult party here soon. Antoinette M.

The Best experience for Kids

★★★★★
The children had the most wonderful cooking experience. Not only did the get to roll out their dough, use a pasta machine, make fruit parfaits, and then enjoy the fruits of their labor. The music was invigorating, Chef Arthur gave easy to understand instructions, and everything was extremely organized. The children along with their teachers had the most wonderful morning. Thank you again for coming out to our school and offering a cooking experience teaching children about healthy choices. Leaving the school after your visit, I met one of the children leaving with their parent. The mom asked her son about his experience, and said they were going home to make dinner. He told her they had to go buy a pasta machine to make their own pasta for dinner. I guess using the pasta machine was a hit with the children and the teachers as well. Thank you again, and we are looking forward to your next visit.

The kids enjoyed every minute

★★★★★
We just celebrated our daughters 5 year old birthday with. Chef Maria and Chef Arthur at the Real Food Academy. Best party ever, the kids enjoyed every minute as study made their own pizzas and decorated their own cupcakes. I would highly recommend this venue for kid or adult parties.

Sammy LOVED his party!

★★★★★
My little boy had a fantastic cooking party at the Real Food Academy! All of his guests had a tun of fun cooking and eating, and we got so much positive feedback from his guests and their parents, who really appreciated the experience. Chef Maria and Chef Cindy were so kind and helpful. They accommodated his little sister's food allergy so well that none of the pint-sized guests even realized they were eating something gluten-free (pizza on a stick). It was also cool to watch kids who normally don't like vegetables eating their veggie sushi rolls because they'd made them themselves! The goodie-bags were wonderful, too. Sammy LOVED his party. :D

Loved the Kid's Class!

★★★★★
Dear Chef Maria: I can speak for my colleagues, as well as, myself when recommending "Cooking With Kids" to any faculty who is looking for a fun and educational on-site field trip. Chef Maria was organized and well-prepared from the moment I first called to inquiry about her company. It was quite impressive to watch as she fully engaged the students in the lesson. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. Keep up the great job you are doing. Tina M. Harris Kindergarten Teacher, Oxford Academy of Miami Charter School.

The Best Party!

★★★★★
Dear Chef Maria, I just wanted to thank you and your staff for an amazing birthday party for Juliet. The word, “best” kept coming up to describe everyone’s experience that day - Juliet said the pasta and garlic bread she made with you was the “best” she’s ever eaten. And, I was getting text messages from moms telling me how their daughters said it was the “best” birthday party they’ve ever attended. All 15 girls looked so adorable in their hats and aprons, and it was wonderful how each one of them participated in the hands-on experience of making homemade pasta and garlic bread from scratch. Now they appreciate how hard we moms work in the kitchen! And the cupcake decorating portion really brought out their creative juices. The party ran so smoothly without a hitch from beginning to end, making my job a breeze so I was able to enjoy Juliet’s special day with her. So, again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for making Juliet’s 9th birthday such a memorable one!

Great way to make them eat right!

★★★★★
Dear Ms. Maria: We wanted to write to thank you for the wonderful experience Louis has had in your cooking class. In addition to learning many things about food preparation, he has also learned a great deal about nutrition and table manners. Perhaps most incredibly Louis has begun to eat foods that he would have never tried without being introduced to them through you. Before your class, he was a very picky eater and was never even willing to try any type of meat, fish or green vegetable. Thanks to you, he is now eating and enjoying edamame, churasco, salmon and even sushi! We look forward to Louis continuing in your class and to his baby sister Sabrina joining you when she is a little older. Again, many thanks.

Best After-school Enrichment!

★★★★★
Hello Maria.... I wanted to thank you for creating one of the best after school enrichment programs our family has ever seen. Sophia learned so much about cooking, ethnic foods from all over the world and how to work with her classmates to make a wonderful meal...all in an hour. Of course the program works because of the obvious hours of prep that you put in before the kids arrive. Thanks for a wonderful experience. We have signed Sophia up for the program again during the Spring term.

Thanks for making it memorable!

★★★★★
Hi Ms. Maria, I wanted to thank you and your wonderful staff for making Gianna’s birthday so perfect and special. All the kids enjoyed themselves from beginning to end. The pictures came out beautiful with everyone in their chef hats and aprons. They loved making the pizza and the fruit skewers. By the way, the pizza was incredible. The other moms were saying “nothing like homemade pizza”. I loved the way everything was presented and organized. In addition, I thought it was great that you spoke of cleanliness and safety. I asked Gianna what her favorite part and she could not narrow it down to just one thing …she enjoyed it all !!! Thank you once again for making my daughter’s 8th birthday a memorable one.

Emma enjoys your class a lot!

★★★★★
Hello Maria, Emma enjoys your class a lot. She is a very picky eater, and has tried (and liked!) new foods during your classes. I would really appreciate if you could send me the recipes for the smoothie and the chips with cheese from this past Saturday's class. Emma liked them, and I would love to prepare them at home.

Hosting my son's birthday party at the Real Food Academy was an absolute delight from start to finish. From the moment I booked the party, the owner's attention to detail and dedication to ensuring everything was perfect was evident.On the day of the party, Chef Matias impressed us all with his skill and ability to engage the children. The addition of a magician to the team added an extra layer of fun and excitement to the event, leaving everyone thoroughly entertained.Despite my initial concerns about the duration of the party, three hours flew by, and every guest, especially my son, left with smiles on their faces.We were so impressed that we booked a class for my son, this time for a sushi lesson. What stood out to me was the emphasis on teaching children the importance of eating whole foods over processed ones, which resonated deeply with me as a parent.In summary, I wholeheartedly recommend the Real Food Academy for any celebration, whether it's a children's party or an adult gathering. The experience is exceptional, and the lessons learned about healthy eating are invaluable. I can't wait to return for more memorable experiences.

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

Muchas gracias por compartir tu conocimiento .. una linda experiencia y mucho aprendizaje
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

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!
My Son Chance had a Wonderful Experience. He loved and was very proud of himself after cooking is first meal He will definitely be coming back again . I recommend this school for every child to learn how to cook .

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!
