Mommy and Me Cooking Classes

A unique culinary experience for parents to spend with their kids.
While this unique type of cooking class might be called “Mommy and Me”, 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 cooking class is only held a few times a year, but it offers one of the best bonding experiences you can imagine. It's also the only class that The Real Food Academy offers where adults and kids are taught together, side-by-side.

Mommy and Me Class led by head chef Maria Cummins
Each Miami parent and child cooking class is led by a highly experienced chef, who will design a brand-new menu for each class that features only all-natural, healthy ingredients.

Each recipe is as easy to prepare as it is delicious to eat, and many will work their way into your weekly dinner rotation!

Recipes are available for each dish you'll prepare so you can do them again at home.
Bring your camera and create memories that you and your child will no doubt cherish for a lifetime to come. For more information about our father-son, aunt-nephew, mother-daughter cooking classes, or to reserve your spot, give us a call at (786) 395-0355.

Amazing!!!Best birthday party!!! They are so organized and had the kids entertained from the minute they got there until they left. I was so impressed. They handle everything. It looked great, food was amazing. All the kids had the best time!!
Our staff looks forward to the yearly team building event with Chef Maria. This year, was extra special due to the restrictions of the pandemic the previous year. We had the Latin menu and a whole lot of fun. The Real Food Academy never disappoints. They... were professional, helpful, fun, friendly, and flexible. Thank you for making our first get together since the pandemic a more
We booked a private party to celebrate a birthday. All our guests repeatedly told us how much fun they were having and what a great party it was. It was truly a great way to have a party without all the stress of party planning. Highly recommend!
This place is incredible. I’ve done the Sushi and Pasta classes as well as a private Indian party. Check Giuseppe and chef Maria are extremely patient, thorough, and charismatic. The location is beautiful, clean, and organized. The quality of the food is... outstanding. I recommend this for a different night out!! Amazing experiences every time!read more
Great instructors, love the variety of foods. My daughter really enjoys the classes and cooking on her own, and enjoys eating her creations
My daughter Ava loves this class! Always a great time, full of tasty and healthy foods 😃
Spoke to Arthur (owner) ahead of my 10 year old birthday party … he said “you don’t need to bring anything, we’ve got this!”…. And they sure did! He was amazing in running the party - there was not a moment where kids were wondering what to do! The... instructions on how to make pasta were clear, the fun playing while they were cooking was increíble! The food was delish, the girls had a blast! The waffle towers were delicious! Highly recommend The Real Food Academy!!! My 10 year old and her 14 friends are still talking about it!!!! Thank you so much for such a special and effortless celebration for mom! You guys are the best!read more
My daughter had an amazing time at cooking camp last week! She was a little apprehensive about the food she would make (and then have to eat, LOL) but everything was nutritious and delicious! She cooked dinner TWICE last week and even made a snack for... the family today. She has a new found love for cooking and I’m thrilled to have her expert help in the kitchen ;)read more

My daughter was recently enrolled for 2 weeks in the Real Food Academy's summer camp and she truly loved it.Drop off and pick up were very convenient and the daily recipes were easy and enjoyable.

About Mommy and Me Classes

I truly had a wonderful time

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!

Kids cooking class

I took my girls to the Saturday, April 16th cooking class and both of them absolutely loved it! It was completely hands on, from chopping their own vegetables, to rolling their own dough. It was a huge step up from other classes they have attended. I highly recommend trying one of their classes. My girls can’t wait to go back!
