We Don't Change The Dish, We Change The Ingredients!
What a great find! This is a hidden gem we stumbled on after moving to the Shores. We have tried so many healthy food places but it’s so hard to find one that is consistently good. This is the one! Everything I have tried has been on point. I love the... Miami Spice Bowl, Impossible Burger, Taco Salad, Inka Bowl.... cannot wait to try the rest of their menu. Staff is super friendly & service is great too!!! Get out and help support this local business. They deserve it! 🙌read more

My daughter Rachel loved camp at the Real Food Academy this summer! Chef Maria was always helpful to me and the staff was great with the kids. She learned a lot and had lots of fun too!. Thank you so much!
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 wonderful... time she is signing up for another week. In the mean time we bought the ingredients to all the healthy, yummy items she made!read more
This really amazing place. My daughter loved it. She learned a lot from it and it was very healthy.Highly recommend!!!
Super nice and impeccable environment. Good quality knives, boards, etc. Chef Giusepe took the time to really start from the beginning and taught us how to properly handle and use the knife to cut the food. He was also very knowledgeable and very nice.... We were very lucky it was just 4 of us because it was like a private cooking class. I will come back again ad bring my friends.Thank you for a great class!Maritzaread more
The Real Food Academy Cafe is a fantastic hidden gem for lunch. Food is terrific; healthy; pure and full of flavor. And you can tell that the owners and service staff take great pride in what they do.My friend and I shared two dishes: sweet potato... noodle pad thai and an impossible burger. Both were delicious and the kind of memorable experience that will keep us coming back for more.read more
My daughter took the class for the first time and she loved it! She signed up for the next two weeks. The atmosphere is modern and comfortable. Everything is so clean. She learned about cooking and how to make healthy choices. She made the family... breakfast the next day with minimal assistance from me. They really love what they do and they ensure everything flows smoothly and that the kids are happy.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.
