Well, not exclusively. Daddy and me works too. So does Grandma and me. And Aunt Alice and me as well. You get the idea. This special type of class is held only a few times a year, but offers one of the best bonding experiencing you can imagine.

As you can see from some of the selections below, this special class gives you more than a bonding experience. You'll eat excellent food that you prepared together. Just read what this Mom had to say about a recent class.

Bring your camera and create memories that you and your child will no doubt cherish for a lifetime to come.

Initially I went with the thinking; “this is what we do for our kids”! I am a full time single mom and working professional with very limited time for cooking. But I wanted to share that both my daughter and I enjoyed so much the Mommy and Me cooking class that I know we will spend more time in the kitchen together. I truly had a wonderful time, the staff is great, the quality time is priceless and best of all I got my daughter to try new thing and I got great tip for future healthy and delicious options in the kitchen. Many thanks to the wonderful staff. See you soon!

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!read more

It was a fabulous experience for my granddaughter who is 8. The recipes were fantastic and she was beyond excited at the whole event. She said it was the best Christmas present ever. Some suggestions: 1. give handouts for the recipes that the children made 2. have a few more ingredients at each station, even while encouraging the children to share. I realize that at least six children came in after the class started, so perhaps these were not accounted for when dividing the ingredients.read more

What can I say about The Real Food Academy? I love it! I've attended two cooking classes so far. Peruvian fusion and all about pasta making! I recommend this place if you want to learn how to cook different recipes from different countries, they don't change the dish they change the ingredients (healthier options) Maria is a great teacher and I look forward to taking many more classes.read more

Chef Maria’s recipes are exceptional. My friend and I attended a dinner cooking class and she made each person attending feel welcome. After tasting the sesame encrusted salmon, I kept thinking about it until I finally made it myself at home. It turned out GREAT! Delicious. Next up to replicate, her raw vegan chocolate cheesecake. My friend is still raving about it.read more

Yesterday we celebrated my husbands birthday with a cooking class party at Maria's chef place. I cant think of a better way... We started early in the afternoon. Every one had a blast, my friends haven't stop thanking me for such a quality and different celebration.I take my hat of Maria and her team. Everything worked as a Suisse clock. Whatever needed to be ready, was ready. There was not lack of utensils or good food and good atmosphere. We brought our wine and beer, she provided the rest. My friend are already commenting on making the food themselves and inviting us, life is good :)read more

Chef Maria had got all the flavor. Stop in an order and empanada and a poke bowl. The avocado toast was so incredible and we just could not get enough of her bright and youthful energy. What a lighthouse this place was for my friends and I. We were in town for Basel and really craving some real plant based food an this spot was a homerun. Amazing prices, amazing vibe, amazing architecture. So much love and the best quality for your dollars.read more
