Super Fun Culinary Birthday Party!

"We had an amazing time at the culinary class, which I booked to celebrate my birthday as something outside of the box and unique. We had about 19 people and had ample space to chat and welcome everyone before we started. We all had a blast, learning step by step with the instructor for the salad, appetizer and entree, and we all loved that it was completely hands-on. We all were involved in the process and my favorite part was making the pasta! We all laughed and mingled and had a great soundtrack all night. There was an abundance of food and it was satisfying to eat everything that we created. The staff was excellent and very helpful - many thanks for making this a wonderful birthday event!"

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.

All the recipes prepared at The Real Food Academy are easily accessible on our recipes page.

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 cuisine type and you will quickly receive a list of all the recipes that include that cuisine.

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.

Our Steps

  1. Purchase credits.
  2. 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.

If you desire a wine or beer not available on our list, you have two options .

  1. Request your specific choice of wine and/or beer from The Real Food Academy and it will be provided by The Real Food Academy at the event or class. Applicable pricing applies.
  2. Bring outside beer and wine and pay a corkage fee of $15 per opened bottle for wine and a flat fee of $20 per for beer brought in from outside. The $20 fee for beer applies to the entire amount of beer ranging from one beer or more. Please note the corkage option is ONLY available for cooking classes. Private parties are not eligible for this option.

No, we will provide them for you and your guests. Please let us know the type of glasses you need.
