My daughter’s 10th bday was celebrated at The Real Food Academy, and let me just say, it was MAGICAL INDEED! Art, Maria, and the rest of the staff were AMAZING! They made all of our guests feel safe (covid measures were adhered to and followed) and... comfortable as well as pampered and treated as 5 star guests! The girls had a blast making their pasta and garlic bread and truly worked off their pasta calories with a great Zumba workout and dance party! The Real Food Academy was the BEST way to celebrate our precious more

This was a wonderful gift from my daughter for my birthday. We spent the evening preparing healthy Thanksgiving side dishes and I was amazed that healthy also meant super tasty and fun! We made gluten free corn bread muffins, quinoa stuffing, cranberry... sauce, roasted Brussels with lemon aioli and creamy cauliflower mash - all really delicious. Our chef was amazing - friendly, informative and made everyone feel welcome. Everything was spotlessly clean and beautifully done. We will be back again - thank you!read more

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

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

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

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. Visit our FAQ section below for further information about what our kids’ birthday party place in Miami is able to accommodate and read through our party packages to find a celebration option that works for you.

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.


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% gratuity (or service charge) will be added to your bill on all parties.

Unique Family Experience

We were debating on what to do during these pandemic times so that our daughter may have a nice experience on her birthday. We made an excellent choice with The Real Food Academy. From planning through the actual event, everything was properly thought out, hosted and executed. Art and Maria were welcoming and patient as we set out to socially distance 19 guests per family unit. I couldn't ask for a more memorable experience for my daughter's 9th birthday. The adults had just as much fun as the kids! From start to finish, it was actually her favorite birthday to date! Thanks RFA Team!
