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.

Spring Camp for Our Daughter Sofia

"Our experience with the Spring Camp for our daughter Sofia was truly exceptional. Sofia thoroughly enjoyed every moment spent at the camp. She immersed herself in learning about quality foods and exploring the art of making delicious recipes :) One of the highlights of the camp was the dedicated and talented teachers who guided Sofia throughout her journey. Their expertise, kindness, and passion for teaching left a lasting impression on Sofia. Overall, we couldn't be happier with our experience at the Spring Camp. It provided Sofia with not only valuable knowledge but also unforgettable memories. We are eagerly looking forward to the next camp and the opportunity for Sofia to continue her culinary adventures. Thank you to the organizers and staff for creating such a fantastic and enriching experience for our daughter."

Great camp

“My son is 8 years old and he is not a big eater, very conservative, simple dishes, no interest in cooking. This camp was recommended to us by a friend. We had an idea, that working with food, cooking , kitchen kind of experience will help him feel more easy in trying new dishes and new food. My son loved camp, every morning he was rushing to academy, he told us , that he had lots of joy, he liked atmosphere and people. I was very happy to see him being so proud of himself, when he treated us with the food, he’d cooked. Registration process and communication with staff was very easy and smooth. Now I am thinking of taking classes myself.”
