I had fun being a 6th grader from Palm Springs middle school making pizza, for desert was banana, pineapple, and strawberry and dark chocolate sauce I loved it thanks to chef martinez have wonderful day😁😁
Best Bday party ever!My twins just turned 9 and they had their best Bday party ever! Every detail of the event organization was perfect: decoration, food, and kids' activities. Chef Isa is an amazing host and event coordinator!
Amazing 7th BirthdayThe party was excellent from beginning to end. Everyone had an amazing time. The level of organization was regimented, yet not restrictive. The kids were active participants throughout. The age range of boys and girls was 4-13.... Price was well worth it, and we had added a second entree and an additional hour. We even had platters of food for the adults. Not one element of the party was not first rate.read more
My daughter had such a great experience at the Real Food Academy’s Saturday kids session. The moment we stepped in Maria welcomed us with the biggest smile. I watched the entire session from upstairs and I loved it from the beginning till the end. My... daughter is looking forward to attending their week long summer camp next week. :)read more
We were blown away with our experience at the Real Food Academy. We hosted 25 kids from Fort Lauderdale and every parent was in awe. The kids were nonstop involved and excited for over two hours. The time flew by. Arthur and his team are incredible.... Everyone commented how creative, interactive and educational our party was. We love teaching our son the lesson of experiences and sharing food among friends and family, Lessons they will have forever! The prices are are extremely reasonable and the team went above and beyond to make us feel special. The kids all want to keep cooking at home today! i will be booking another event (probably for adults) in the near future! I absolutely recommend to book your next event with them. Thank You!!!read more
Awesome Sushi ClassThis was an amazing experience! Very hands on, and Maria our chef was extremely knowledgeable. She taught the class tips and tricks on how to prepare our Sushi the right way, and these gems can also be helpful for any dish. I... definitely want to come back!read more
Always an amazing experience cooking with Chef Maria and Chef Arthur! Adult Peruvian cuisine class was a total hit, just as the kids class I took my daughter to in April. Highly recommend for all family members!
Amazing experience! Thank you the real food academy! The Peruvian food class was awesome! 🤤
Fantastic experience !My son had a great time at the summer camp. He came home everyday excited to recap all the yummy and fun food he made. He also started to learn basic knife skills. Now he volunteers to cut some simple foods and wants to help me... make his breakfast. As a parent, I loved that he was introduced to learning more about food and the importance of healthy eating. Overall a fantastic experience.read more
My 7 year old daughter had an incredible learning experience at camp last week. She came home inspired and with her heart and belly full. We will definitely return. Thank you for creating an incredible camp.
Fettuccine Fiesta!!This was by far the best way to celebrate my birthday. I loved EVERYTHING! Maria and her staff was very professional and everything was so sanitary. She made last minute accommodations with ease. We learned so much and felt so... accomplished! I will definitely be back and spread the word about The Real Food AcademyWe Cooked!We Celebrated!We Cleaned Our Plates!!read more
Lots of gluten free and vegan options and wonderful customer service
Amazing!!!Best birthday party!!! They are so organized and had the kids entertained from the minute they got there until they left. I was so impressed. They handle everything. It looked great, food was amazing. All the kids had the best time!!
Our staff looks forward to the yearly team building event with Chef Maria. This year, was extra special due to the restrictions of the pandemic the previous year. We had the Latin menu and a whole lot of fun. The Real Food Academy never disappoints. They... were professional, helpful, fun, friendly, and flexible. Thank you for making our first get together since the pandemic a blast.read more
We booked a private party to celebrate a birthday. All our guests repeatedly told us how much fun they were having and what a great party it was. It was truly a great way to have a party without all the stress of party planning. Highly recommend!

Kids Rave About Our Cooking Birthday Parties

Don’t throw a birthday party that’s been thrown before! Pass on the pony rides and processed foods this year and throw a kids’ cooking class birthday party in Miami that’s as fresh and fulfilling as the food you’ll prepare.

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

You are more than welcome to decorate the space, bring a cake, hang a pinata, or supply other activities and extras for your child’s cooking class birthday party.

We are located at 570 NE 81st Street, Miami, FL 33138 (map)

NO

Yes, for an extra charge we provide a variety of both savory and sweet food platters for the adults. To see your options, select a party package above, and the party platters available for adults are shown on the right side. You are welcome to provide the adults food yourself if you prefer.

Yes, we have lots of room. In fact, we offer additional services to make your stay at the party as much fun for you, as it is for the kids. Order from our Adult Party platters, bring wine, beer or other beverages (no hard alcohol please) and have a party within a party.

Bring some of your friends, other parents or family and enjoy A Party Within A Party! ™

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.

We are surrounded by lots of free parking.  However, do not park in the CVS parking lot.  You may be towed if you do.  Also, if you park on the street you need to use the paybyphone app.

Absolutely!  The space belongs to you during the hours that you booked the party.  Feel free to decorate it however you like!

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.
