Classes FAQs

No. All Payments and Deposits are non-refundable: When a payment or deposit is made, that day and time is no longer available to other customers on our calendar. For that reason, all payments and deposits are non-refundable.

In the case of a cooking class, the ingredients are shopped for and prepped in advance. Staff is also scheduled according to the number of people on the roster.

See our Wine and Beer list for your in-house kids party options. Optionally, you can bring your own wine or beer and page a corkage fee.

Corkage Fees

  • $15 per 750 ml bottle of wine
  • $30 per 1.5 L bottle of wine

Bring outside beer: $20 for beer (any quantity)

NO

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.

We developed the prepaid package to help save a family some money. If you have one kid who's coming to cooking class all the time, or if you have more than one kid. We know that can become costly, so we created the package. Not for friends, sorry.

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.

If for some reason you require a printed copy of the recipe, please request it from the chef and they will happily provide it to you.

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.

Yes, One thing! If your child has long hair, please have it pulled back and tied up neatly and pulled out of the face of your child upon arriving to class!

We are not limited to any one cuisine. Every week we prepare your kids favorite foods! It may be Italian one week, American the next week, Asian, Latin and more. No matter the cuisine, you can always count on us showing your kids how to prepare their favorite foods in the most health way!

No. Parents are invited to hang out in the cafe and enjoy a delicious breakfast, coffee, or even a mimosa!

We insist on this rule because your child needs to focus on the instructor. Parents can be very distracting to their children, which is not safe in many cases. Also, believe it or not, your child behaves MUCH better when Mom or Dad is not around! Please trust us on this one.

Your child will have a far better experience if you are not in the classroom. You will be invited into the classroom at the end of the class. That is when you can take pictures and when your child will have the opportunity to tell you all about their great creation. You will even have a chance to sample what they made.

We thank you in advance for respecting this rule. :)

All registrations for Saturday class are done through our on-line calendar. This will provide us the information we need in advance to be properly prepared for the class. Sorry..no walk-ins.

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.

Nothing. Just an appetite!
