For Kids

Budding Chef Membership

Has your child become fascinated with cooking recently? Do they want to help in the kitchen all the time? If yes, you will love our New Budding Chef Membership.

Many of our young members come to cooking class every week. In that case, you are paying only about $15 PER CLASS. Even if you only attended three times per month, you pay about $19 per class. When you consider the regular cost for a single kids class is $35, its an easy choice!

$59 per month

For Adults

Top Chef Membership

Our adult membership is called the Top Chef membership. This membership is just as exciting as our kids membership. Are you ready to finally learn to cook or prepare healthy and delicious meals?

Just like the Budding Chef our Top Chef Membership is an amazing value. Many of our current members come twice and some even come three times a week to classes. Let's say you only came once a week, that's only about $21 PER CLASS!​ (normally $65 per class)

$89 per month

In addition to unlimited attendance, you will also enjoy discounts on all the food served at The Real Food Cafe!

Details about the Real Food Cafe Coming Soon!

All the recipes prepared at The Real Food Academy are easily accessible from our website at https://therealfoodacademy.com/our-recipes/ You can simply type the name of the recipe in the search field to find the recipe your are looking for. If you can’t remember the exact name…no problem. Just type in the main ingredient and you will quickly receive a list of all the recipes that include that main ingredient. If for some reason you require a printed copy of the recipe, please request it from the chef and they will happily provide it to you.
Yes.  The only way for The Real Food Academy to offer such low priced memberships is to require a minimum term of one year.  If you are not prepared to make such a commitment, the membership may not be for you.

Yes, you still need to register for each class. When you purchase a package of classes, you are essentially purchasing credits to be deducted from each class you book. In the case of the kids classes you are purchasing 10 credits and for adult classes you are purchasing 4 credits.

The first step is to purchase the credits and the second step is to use the credits.

So step #1 is purchase credits

Step #2 is choose the class you want to attend and book that class as you would normally do. The difference will be that you will not be asked for a credit card payment. You will simply deduct 1 credit from your Real Food Academy balance.

More importantly, purchasing a package of classes tells us only that you’ve bought a block of credits. We still you to tell us WHEN you are coming to class. Then and only then will we know the details of you or your child and most importantly whether or not your child has any food allergies.

This is why you need to register online for each class.

No purchase is necessary. Simply sign-up to receive your promo code and come in during your child’s birthday month and the class will be 100% free.
You must book the class using our online booking system, but first you must sign-up for a the free class to receive your promo code via email. If you already signed-up, you should receive an email with instructions to help you complete the free class registration process.
We’ll need your name and number to find the voucher within our system. Or rather the name that purchased the voucher (if different from you). Use the contact us form and provide this information, and we will reply with your voucher code to be used during the booking process.

"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!

Healthy Super Bowl pick!

My two daughters loved the class! My older daughter even created the Cauliflower hot "wings" at home for our Super Bowl celebration and is asking when she can go back to your class again!

Awesome Class!

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

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.

Food was delicious

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
