The food is very good quality

We've had two classes and brought family members, and had a great time. The chefs are knowledgeable and personable, and the food is very good quality. It's a great ambiance for a class. Planning to go again.

The instructor was informative and sweet

My wife and I took our first cooking class tonight. It was 3 hours of a 4 course meal on Mayan cooking. The meals were amazing. The instructor was informative and sweet. I learned so many new cooking tips and can't wait to recreate the meals we made tonight. The food was healthy as well. I highly recommend this experience.

It was an amazing experience!

I found The Real food Academy through Yelp and I can honestly say that it was an amazing experience! I've never been to a cooking class before and I will definitely come back again and I will be recommending this place to everyone I know! The food was delicious and very easy and healthy. If anyone is looking for a fun and different kind of date night, I would definitely bring your partner here.

What a fantastic experience!

What a fantastic experience! Looking forward to making this a regular fine night out. Quality of the food was exceptional, chef Maria is a delight and full in sight. The hands on cooking class, the fun interactions between others, paired with a nice bottle of wine (which you can bring by the way), makes for a flawless evening. Highly recommend! Thank you Chef Maria!

AMAZING!!!! That's the only word you need to know when describing The Real Food Academy. My husband and I went for the Valentine's Day dinner and it was truly special. Maria the head Chef made sure to make us feel right at home. She also had a cute little game planned in between the cooking class. It was very fun! AND you can take your own bottle of wine and they provide the glasses! I will definitely be back!
- Carla F.

The food of course was incredible

Went with my wife for Valentine's Day cooking class and truly had an amazing experience. This was our second time going and we loved It just as much as the first time. Thank you Real Food for the experience, the food of course was incredible. We will be back again and again.

What an awesome experience!

What an awesome experience! Chef Maria is passionate about clean eating and walked our class through preparing tasty, simple and healthy dishes in a super-relaxed environment. The vibe is chill, and you make quick friends with your classmates. Great for a couple's night out or groups. Just make sure to bring a bottle of wine (or two!) and a zeal for good eats! Highly recommend!
- Matthew B.

Can't wait to go back for our next lesson!

My husband and I went to the Korean Feast cooking class, and we really enjoyed it. We were very excited by the menu and were happy to learn a healthy take on Korean "fried" chicken. Chef Maria made our experience very fun. You can tell she puts a lot of love and passion into everything she does. Every ingredient we used was high quality, organic, and wholesome. We learned a lot, and can't wait to go back for our next lesson! Thank you, Chef Maria!
- Susie A.

Everyone loved it!

We've had The Real Food Academy come to our center more than 3 times and the participants love it! The Chef is friendly and very patient with our special population. We absolutely love the class and will continue to book them. Last time we made zucchini pasta and everyone loved it!

Ceriche Workshop

Recently I had the most wonderful, exquisite, delightful, easy and entertaining Ceviche class. The Chef, Maria, is a gracious and wonderful hostess (along with her husband) that helps you feel at ease from the moment you step into her cozy location. It was just an overall experience in terms of what you learn, the quality of products you use, the people you get to meet and the relaxing ambiance. Highly recommend for anyone interested in learning anything about cooking from simply buying quality products, learning or perfecting your skills. Couples, singles or ladies night out it was just relaxing to be among other adults in an evening where I felt like I was invited to this great intimate dinner and be part of the creation in a fun way. Best part, I did it! I really learned in a simple way how to do an exquisite Ceviche!!! Looking forward for other classes or group celebrations. Thank you Maria!

We All Had Such A Phenomenal Time!

The space was beautiful and comfortable, the hosts (Cristina and Diego) were friendly and approachable, and the food was delicious! We all had such a phenomenal time!! We would definitely do the class again. Really nice that we were able to have our drink of choice :) Thanks again Real Food Academy!
- Amanda Hernandez

The Best Present I Got!!

My boyfriend and I recieved tickets to this class as a present, and oh my god it was the best present I got!!! Chef Christina was the best. She really helps to open your eyes to cooking delicious HEALTHY meals, which seems unreal but she makes it so simple and easy it’ll actually change the way you eat! Unbelievably amazing class. I can’t wait to go back!
- Janet Doura

Cristina and Jeff were great!

This was our second time and it did not disappoint. Excited to try the recipes at home. Very simple to follow and recreate which I appreciate. Hoping to get a group of friends to go out together. We also enjoyed the extra time we got to learn some chopping techniques. Those will be real time savers. Cristina and Jeff were great, knowledge and patient. We will be going back.

I really recommend this place for almost any occasion!

I really recommend this place for almost any occasion. For me is a before and after experience, before I did not enjoy cooking but I had to do it anyway so I decided to look for a place where I could learn easy recipes but very yummy and healthy so I gave this place a try like a 2 month ago and since then I haven't missed a class every single weak... I love this place, Cheff Maria is a super Cheff and a super person, Cheff Karina a very kind and thoughtful person and Cheff Salud full of joy... each one of them had different backgrounds and individual way of cooking and I personally enjoy each one style... my after is that know I loveeee to cook and plan to keep learning Oh Yea!!!!
- Elvira O.


This was an amazing experience!!! Chef Maria was outstanding. The learning experience invaluable and the food super tasty. You wine, you dine, you learn to prepare, you cook it and then you eat! Simply delicious! A DEFINITE MUST TRY!!!

Chef María makes you feel at home

This has been one of the most fun dates I've had in my life. The reason being is because as soon as you walk inside The Real Food Academy, you start to have the Chef experience. You get your apron on, Chef María greets you with her incredible energy and passion. You cant fool anybody, when you have a real passion in life it shows all around. Chef María makes you feel at home, and she delivers the class in a fun, educational and interactive way. The class is hands on and you really get to learn. I was invited to the vegan class and it was wonderful. Next day I went to the supermarket to get some of the ingredients and started trying the new dishes right away. You can also purchase cooking accessories and overall the experience is so much fun and the best part is that you get to eat a ton of food and try new things. Good job Chef María.
- Vivian J.

Highly recommend this to any of our friends and family.

We came to Miami for a Bachelorette party over Thanksgiving and really wanted to have a cooking class as part of our experience. Chef Maria went out of her way to ensure that we could schedule a private class during the holiday. We were hosted by Chef Jamila, who was extremely knowledgeable, welcoming and fun. She's an NYC-educated chef with extensive experience in top international restaurants, which made for great conversation as well. We had selected the Latin Menu and prepared Ceviche, Causa and Paella; all with premium ingredients. It was a pleasure to eat our own creations! Overall, we would highly recommend this to any of our friends and family. Thank you Real Food Academy for this Five-star experience!!

I learnt a lot about preparing healthy food

For the second time, I took cooking classes with the real food academy and both times I absolutely loved it. The first class was to learn the tricks of Chinese cooking which was amazing and yesterday we had a Raw food cooking class and I loved it. It was outstanding. I am an experienced cook but chef Maria was able to impress me with amazing skills, wonderful food and her passion about healthy food. Even though I cook and am a Nutrition coach, I learnt a lot about preparing healthy food, it was a great atmosphere, the place is super clean and cozy, I learnt a lot of skills. It is a great class no matter if a beginner or advanced. They also have great kids cooking classes. I highly recommend their cooking courses
- Andrea C.

Wonderful experience!!!

Wonderful experience!!! The sushi night was hands on and we ate everything we prepared. Chef Cristina was super friendly and the ambiance was relaxed and warm. We are already making the dishes we learned and they taste delicious. We prepared a sorbet using super foods and it was the most delicious sorbet I have ever tried, and I am an expert on desserts:)
