Spoke to Arthur (owner) ahead of my 10 year old birthday 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!

Real Food Academy: More About Us
At the Real Food Academy, our cooking classes in Miami for kids and adults are all about good times, good tastes, and good eating habits. Founded in 2008 by Head Chef Maria Cummins, the mission of the academy isn’t just to teach kids how to cook delicious meals, but also to teach them what types of ingredients to cook with. These are the words we cook by at our cooking school in Miami, Florida: “We don’t change the dish, we change the ingredients!” This allows our little chefs to cook what they enjoy while using healthy, all-natural substitutes that are better for them, and that taste better, too!
After more than a decade in business, Maria and her husband continue their culinary mission by offering an expanding catalog of cooking camps and classes at our Miami cooking school, including Saturday kids’ cooking classes, Mommy and Me classes, after school programs, and even professional culinary courses and classes for adults.
We also offer private cooking classes in Miami for birthday parties, corporate events, or any other type of get-together, where one of our professional chefs will design a custom menu for the celebration.
