I’ve done a lot of team building cooking events over the years.The Real Food Academy created amazing cooking experiences for my corporate group! Online reservations, menu selection and adjustments for dietary needs were easy. Chef Maria and her team are... very responsive and clearly love what they do! I highly recommend the Real Food Academy for a fun family activity, a corporate group or a great time with friends!read more
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

Probably one of the best birthday celebrations I've ever had! It was a great interactive activity to do with my close friends and we all enjoyed ourselves. The food was amazing, we learned a lot and the staff was very attentive/accommodating. Til this... day, we still all have a smile on our faces talking about that evening. We just might do it again for my next birthday ☺️read more
Love this class! I have been a couple times so far. Maria is super nice and energetic and of course it helps that the food is tasty. Always a great group of people here as guests and the service is accommodating
Fun for the kids, and parents as well! Best kids birthday party ever !
My team and I (about 28 people) had a wonderful experience this week at The Real Food Academy. Chef Xiomara was great, everything very well organized and the food was delicious. Great ambiance and everyone left super happy. Thank you!
I would highly recommend the adult cooking class. I took my sister as a birthday gift. We had a fantastic time. The class is a mix of practical and hands-on learning. Maria, the head chef, does an amazing job leading the class and making it fun for both... beginners and more advanced chefs. Plus the food was incredibly delicious.read more
I just went today for the first time to a class and I totally loved it!!!! I made it to a girls night, apart from having a blast we learned hot to make from the pita bread from scratch to how to cut the seabass! The teacher was excellent, answering all... our questions and explaining well how to make each dish, giving us her secrets and it was very helpful!!!! I totally loved it and looking forward to come back to the next class! Very friendly staff and delicious foodread more

Our location in Miami welcomes up to 140 little chefs (and their parents) for a fun and delicious cooking birthday experience. Optionally, our mobile service can drive to a party location of your choice (additional charges apply).

From the very beginning, we invite the client to be as hands-on as they wish to be during the planning process. Whether you want to hammer out every detail or leave it all to our professional and experienced staff, we’re ready to accommodate you.

The menus for our kids’ cooking class birthday parties in Miami include meals that children of all ages will love to eat, but they’re made with all-natural ingredients and healthy substitutions. At the Real Food Academy, we live by our mantra: “We don’t change the dish, we change the ingredients!” Not only will your guests get to eat something delicious that they’ve prepared with their own two hands, but they’ll eat healthy, too.

What About The Adults Who Come?

We understand how fun and endearing it can be for family and friends to watch kids during one of our cooking birthday parties as each one prepares and eats delicious, healthy food. But, on an empty stomach, the mouth watering sights and aromas that dance with our guests’ appetite may be too much to handle! :)

That's why we now offer both Savory and Sweet chef prepared food platter's, certain to keep your palate and stomach pleasantly occupied while you're watching.

When You're Here, You're Family

Yes, as long as they are accompanied by their parent who will provide their undivided attention to that child.

Yes, but for Executive and Top Chef parties only.  

If a  Piñata is important to you and you have ordered a Budding Chef party, you can add $100 for the extra time and we will gladly welcome your Piñata.

No.  In our experience, most times the cake plates, napkins etc. will be part of a theme.  We, along with the parents have found it better to leave this to the parents. 

However we are more than happy to help in a pinch.

Yes!

Yes.

You will receive a series of emails from The Real Food Academy after you make the deposit.  One of the emails will be regarding the Final Head Count.  That form needs to be returned to us no later than 1 day before the party.

In some cases you can show up as early as 1 hour before your party time.  In other cases that will not be possible due to parties or classes happening before your party.  Every situation is different.  If you feel you need to arrive a full hour before your party time please call 786-395-0355 to inquire.

No. An 18% service charge will be added to your bill. If our staff has gone above and beyond, an additional "gratuity" would be appreciated, but is not necessary.

Eva’s Birthday Party

★★★★★
Hola!! La experiencia en el instituto fué increíble. Superó todas mis expectativas y eso se debe a que están especializados en clases de cocina para niños. Saben cómo manejarlos, cómo hacer que se diviertan mientras realizan su actividad. El servicio de la chef Isa y de Matías, fué impecable, muy profesionales y lo más importante, siempre dispuestos a ayudar al cliente, en este caso, me ayudaron mucho con varios detalles alrededor de la reunión. Eva, her friends and the parents we’re so happy enjoying that moment. I definitely will recommend this place. Everything was amazing and special.
