I bought tickets to a pasta making class for my partner as a Christmas present. We both had such a great time during this class. The food was also amazing! We will definitely be back and have encouraged our family members to come with us.
Absolutely amazing place to celebrate a birthday party.💕I did my daughter 12 years old birthday party at The real food academy and it was absolutely wonderful. Maria the owner was great, flexible, helpful and made everything possible to enjoy... the party.The girls had a blast making sushi and strawberry shortcake, very well organized, clean, convenient and specious place.About the chef Isa, she was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable in what she does and she make sure that each girl is enjoying cooking.Highly recommended place for a fun cooking party!read more
I’ve done a lot of team building cooking events over the years.The Real Food Academy created amazing cooking experiences for my corporate group! Online reservations, menu selection and adjustments for dietary needs were easy. Chef Maria and her team are... very responsive and clearly love what they do! I highly recommend the Real Food Academy for a fun family activity, a corporate group or a great time with friends!read more
The adult cooking class was super fun. A group of 10 from my family (most of whom are avid cooks and all of whom are avid eaters) really enjoyed the evening making fresh pasta and a delicious salmon appetizer. The ingredients and gear were high quality... and the event well-organized. I hope to go again sometime!read more
I have been to Real Food Academy twice in the last month, which is a testimony of how much I have enjoyed these classes. This last time I was joined by several of my family members and it resulted as a great way to spend time together. Not only did we... learned a lot under the direction of wonderful chef Maria, but we also got to enjoy delicious food we made ourselves. I highly recommend The Real Food Academy!read more
---------------------------------------------6th Birthday partyThe best indoor venue for a kids birthday party in Miami! The kids are completely engaged with the friendliest staff and instructors. Parents were able to relax and I barely had to plan... because I ordered their delicious platters for adults and kids ate what they cooked. Thank you again for hosting the kids and adults, everyone had a great time!read more
Probably one of the best birthday celebrations I've ever had! It was a great interactive activity to do with my close friends and we all enjoyed ourselves. The food was amazing, we learned a lot and the staff was very attentive/accommodating. Til this... day, we still all have a smile on our faces talking about that evening. We just might do it again for my next birthday ☺️read more
Love this class! I have been a couple times so far. Maria is super nice and energetic and of course it helps that the food is tasty. Always a great group of people here as guests and the service is accommodating
Fun for the kids, and parents as well! Best kids birthday party ever !
My team and I (about 28 people) had a wonderful experience this week at The Real Food Academy. Chef Xiomara was great, everything very well organized and the food was delicious. Great ambiance and everyone left super happy. Thank you!
I would highly recommend the adult cooking class. I took my sister as a birthday gift. We had a fantastic time. The class is a mix of practical and hands-on learning. Maria, the head chef, does an amazing job leading the class and making it fun for both... beginners and more advanced chefs. Plus the food was incredibly delicious.read more
I just went today for the first time to a class and I totally loved it!!!! I made it to a girls night, apart from having a blast we learned hot to make from the pita bread from scratch to how to cut the seabass! The teacher was excellent, answering all... our questions and explaining well how to make each dish, giving us her secrets and it was very helpful!!!! I totally loved it and looking forward to come back to the next class! Very friendly staff and delicious foodread more

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.

We are located at 570 NE 81st Street, Miami, FL 33138 (map)

All the recipes prepared at The Real Food Academy are easily accessible from our website at https://therealfoodacademy.com/our-recipes/

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 main ingredient and you will quickly receive a list of all the recipes that include that main ingredient.

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.

So step #1 is purchase credits

Step #2 is 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!

NO

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.

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.

My daughter had such a great experience at the Real Food Academy’s Saturday kids session. The moment we stepped in Maria welcomed us with the biggest smile.

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!

If your child loves to eat and have fun, we want them enrolled in our Saturday cooking classes in Miami for kids! Every Saturday, your kids will come home with big smiles on their faces and be little bit more knowledgeable about how to distinguish “real food” from “food-like” products. We only use all natural and healthy ingredients in every dish, hence our slogan: "We Don't Change the Dish....We Change the Ingredients!" The menus for our kid-friendly weekend cooking classes are designed to re-introduce your child to some of their favorite meals but with healthy alternatives.

We call this the "secret ingredient method", which helps kids make food breakthroughs that have them saying, "I Tried and I Liked It". Our Saturday cooking classes in Miami for kids have taught us that when youth are involved in the preparation of their own meal, they will try—and actually like—foods they would not have otherwise given a chance.
Some parents wait for their little chefs-in-training at the brand-new café just steps away from our Saturday culinary classes in Miami. Enjoy a healthy bite to eat or a delicious espresso before you see what your child has created this time!
