"A GREAT COOKING EXPERIENCE!"

I took 4 classes with Maria, a wonderful chef and host. She teaches how to cook healthy food in a relaxed and friendly environment and makes the classes a fun experience. I cooked for a small group on Mother's day, avocado and veggie wraps and pistachio-crusted salmon, which was a big success! I highly recommend the course to anyone interested in cooking healthy food!

We couldn't possibly be more grateful for the incredible experience provided to our students. They truly loved the cooking class, and look forward to having another one. This is an email I received from a parent after school: Hello, I just had to let you know how much Evan enjoyed today's cooking field trip at school. He has been talking about it since he got home, and told me what a "great learning experience it was." He was so happy when I picked him up- thank you so much for giving him this opportunity. Best, Ms. Motter Thanks again, and please email me with promotional materials so that I can inform students, parents, and other teachers about The Real Food Academy.

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!

We All Had Such A Phenomenal Time!

My boyfriend and I recieved tickets to this class as a present, and oh my god it was the best present I got!!! Chef Christina was the best. She really helps to open your eyes to cooking delicious HEALTHY meals, which seems unreal but she makes it so simple and easy it’ll actually change the way you eat! Unbelievably amazing class. I can’t wait to go back!

Cristina and Jeff were great!

This was our second time and it did not disappoint. Excited to try the recipes at home. Very simple to follow and recreate which I appreciate. Hoping to get a group of friends to go out together. We also enjoyed the extra time we got to learn some chopping techniques. Those will be real time savers. Cristina and Jeff were great, knowledge and patient. We will be going back.

My son loves cooking and now even more after trying this class! My other son loved it so much that he is going to start next Saturday as well. It's awesome because of the small class setting. It allows our kids to learn and love the art of cooking! Thanks Chef Maria! Kirsys

I can't say enough good about the real food academy and it's chefs, we have learned a lot and taken the information home with us for better eating.

This was the first time my daughter took the cooking class and she loved it. She is a very picky eater and I was so happy she tried what she made. She cannot wait until the next time we go. I would truly recommend this place to others. My daughter really enjoyed the chef she worked with and everyone was so nice.

Great class, and the food was delicious. It may be a good idea to make it clear if a beginners or advanced class and offer both. Thank you
