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!

Sensational Sushi Class Experience

★★★★★
This class was amazing.! We had so much fun learning hands on, tasting, cutting up vegetables, and eating. The atmosphere is stellar! The instructions were on point and the Chef/Owner was so engaging as she explained and demonstrated everything at a nice pace. I had the most wonderful experience and met some great people. The environment is safe, clean, and so welcoming. I plan to attend other class sessions soon and now I can make my own Sushi - one of my favourite foods. Highly, highly satisfied customer.

Comeraderie

★★★★★
Maria’s classes are a smooth, professionally run production that has the added benefits of being warmly welcoming. My friend and I had a great time. Her healthier recipes of popular dishes are repeatable for home use. I always learn something new from these experiences.
- Ellen Berger

The BEST In-house Experience

★★★★★
So interactive, real fruit, real lessons, real connection to nutrition, music, guidance but they give the children the ability to truly "cook" on their own. They led an amazing interaction with an auditorium full of children ranging from Kindergarten to 5th grade and you held the attention of every single child for the entire time. Such an amazing experience!

To celebrate the birthday of our daughter in this place was a good idea! The kids loved to prepare food and eat it! The food was yummy. The organisation was perfect. We enjoyed our time there so much. Thank you!

Wow!! Amazing party!

★★★★★
Today we celebrated my daughter’s 7th birthday at The Real Food Academy. Chef Arthur is great with the children and did an amazing job teaching the children how to make garlic rolls, pasta from scratch and how to decorate cupcakes. The children were following all the instructions and had a great time preparing their food. The kids got to eat the food they prepared. We also got a few adult food platters, all the food Chef Maria prepared was delicious! Chef Maria set up the main table for us and gave us everything we needed for the party (ice, drink buckets, cups, napkins, etc). The staff were also great and even packed all leftovers for us. 100% recommended!
- Gaby

Bachelorette Party

We had the best time with Chef Maria! The food was delicious and so was the wine. We were a group of 6. We had the whole beautiful place to ourselves. Would 100% recommend to any party looking for an intimate space to eat, drink, and talk.

Germany-Love Bday Party was EPIC

★★★★★
This place is a true Gem. No other place would've given my daughter this experience for her 5th Birthday other than The Real Food Academy. The highlight of my daughter's Birthday Party was when the owner basically had an open mic go around to all the kids and adults at the table to wish Germany-Love HBD in their own special unique way. I'm now a forever customer. Thank you for your hospitality, and professionalism.

Exciting and Educational

★★★★★
My students loved cooking with The Real Food Academy. Not only did have fun and make a delicious kid-friendly meal, they also learned about nutrition and what it means to eat REAL food instead of processed food. The chefs knew exactly how to deal with a large group of kids and keep things moving. It was excellent!
- Amanda Dean

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 blast.

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!

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!

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 ;)

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. She learned a great deal about how to handle kitchen utensils as well as how to make foods such as pasta, Asian dishes and some great vegan desserts.She is eager to try making some of these recipes at home and I'm excited for her to showcase what she learned in camp.

cooking class was excellent
Amazing place, great staff. The children's camp is awesome for teens as well. Kiddo is happy, learning and having fun! Highly recommended!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I was hesitant to send my 13 y/o daughter anywhere due to COVID but temperature checks were taken seriously, social distancing took place, plenty of space & limited # of campers and masks at all times gave me comfort. My daughter had such a great time she is signing up for another week! In the mean time we bought the ingredients to all the healthy, yummy items she made!
