The adult cooking class was super fun. A group of 10 from my family (most of whom are avid cooks and all of whom are avid eaters) really enjoyed the evening making fresh pasta and a delicious salmon appetizer. The ingredients and gear were high quality... and the event well-organized. I hope to go again sometime!read more
I have been to Real Food Academy twice in the last month, which is a testimony of how much I have enjoyed these classes. This last time I was joined by several of my family members and it resulted as a great way to spend time together. Not only did we... learned a lot under the direction of wonderful chef Maria, but we also got to enjoy delicious food we made ourselves. I highly recommend The Real Food Academy!read more

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.
Come see what a private eventcan be!
