My two boys, Fabian and Adrian, had a great time and the Real Food Academy summer camp. They really enjoyed arriving to make their own breakfast each morning. They also looked forward to the daily recipes they would be making for lunch. Their favorite day was the day they made cupcakes!

This is out camp's third year booking with The Real Food Academy and it'd never a disappointment. Chef Arthur is simply amazing. The students were engaged the entire time as they learned about food and nutrition as they prepared their lunch.

Amazing camp. Love it !!

I really loved the camp and so did my daughter. My only concern is the amount of sugar and carbs (white flour) they are getting. Anyways, i will highly recommend the camp and will probably enroll my daughter in some afterschool activities. Love all the healthy options and how much they are learning.

She made great friends. A win win!

My 12 yr old daughter and 9 yr old son had an amazing time. They truly enjoyed the experience, learned so much and appreciated all the great staff/chefs. Some of the most favorite things they did include making jam, pasta, egg basket and the empanadas. Thank you for a wonderful week. My children decided to go back this summer for more culinary fun!

Kitchen Confidence!

My two girls have been going to the Real Food Camp for many years. It's their favorite camp because it keeps them both very engaged throughout the day. The activities and skills are age-appropriate so it's never boring to continue to come back each year. They discover new foods and meet friends. The owners and chefs are great with the kids and the program is well organized.

Amazing Summer Experience!

My son have been interested into cooking for a while but all experiences in classes had been disappointing as he didn’t felt like real cooking (he is just 5yo) with this camp he has felt in love, he is so exited to come every day. For me just the fact that he is eating salad and feeling like trying new dishes is just amazing

Amazing!

Last Saturday was my son's first cooking class with The Real Food Academy. He loved it so much that he asked for the recipe and had me buy the ingredients just so he can make it again on Sunday. He can't stop raving about this class to his friends as well. He asked me to print out the schedule for the month so he can go again. It was also fun for my husband and I to watch him enjoy himself and learn how to cook. We will definitely return for more classes! Thank you for an awesome experience! -Priscilla

My daughter (7) and son (9) have never come home more excited about a camp. They learned so much in one week and the best part was, they tried foods that they normally would not eat and loved them! Looking forward to sending them back.

My 10 year old son really enjoyed camp. He loved the hands on cooking and the chef that he worked with, Chef Butler, was great! Everyday, not only was he excited to tell me what he learned and cooked, but he obviously enjoyed working with Chef Butler because he told stories about Chef every day as well. Kudos to Chef Butler for keeping the kids engaged and for encouraging them to feel confident in their skills and abilities! We can't say enough great things about our experience at The Real Food Academy!

Loved the mexican food bar.

Zoe enjoyed everything about camp. She made friends right away. Loved the competition and talked a lot about it before the day. Loved the Mexican food bar. Enjoyed the variety of food she prepared. Wants to come back later this summer. We have recommended camp to others.

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to visit my school.I had an enjoyable time being informed about the importance of having a healthy lifestyle. Thanks again and I hope I will see you again.

The kids had a great time, the parents were free to do as they wished, and everyone was thrilled to have been part of this great experience. Thank you! The one thing i noticed, which was minor, was at times the kids were paying attention, but the adults were loud and would at time drown out the speaker some. Sound could be improved, not for the music but for the instructions and guidance. That is all! Thanks again!

My daughter had an amazing time.

Don’t eat here because it’s food that’s good for you! Eat here because it’s food that tastes GREAT! I’m usually the first one to pass on restaurants that offer healthy, good for you food and I’m the last one to pick anything that’s vegetarian or vegan on any menu. Not here! Everything that I’ve tried is amazingly tasty. It’s also great value for your money. I’m so impressed with this place that I want to come take some of their cooking classes and maybe even host a cooking party here for some of my friends. Please do you tastebuds and yourself a big favor and come try this place out. I promise you will come back again and again!

The best party for kids AND adults! We celebrated our daughters birthday with tons of friends and family. The children were engaged from the time they walked in and the adults got to enjoy themselves. Amazing service from Chef Maria and Arthur. Thank you for an unforgettable time.

Chef Victoria is the sweetest and clearly loves teaching! I organized a team building and my often synical colleagues loved it. When organizing the event, Arthur was responsive, friendly and super helpful. The company went above and beyond to make sure we had an awesome time.

This cafe is a real gem, the food is incredible and because of The Real Food Academy philosophy of changing out the ingredients for healthier options, you can indulge in your favorite dishes without feeling any guilt afterwards! Win winnnnnn! Everything is carefully prepared and presented beautifully and you get a really good sense that the chefs take extraordinary pride in every aspect of getting your food to the table. It's a superb place for vegetarians/vegans/plant based people to eat because the meals are mostly 'meat optional', which I especially love. But - that said, there is definitely something for everyone - the beef is grass-fed and sourced responsibly and the empanadas are to die for. And the portions are generous. I recommend it very highly to all my friends, and all you here reading this review - i'm certain you will want to come back!Congratulations Chef Maria for bringing your cafe vision to life so perfectly!

Chef Maria has got all the flavor. Stop in an order an 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 and this spot was a homerun. Amazing prices, amazing vibe, amazing architecture. So much love and the best quality for your dollars.

We had our company holiday party at Real Food Academy, everything was top notched. Chef Maria and her team did an exceptional job of keeping all of us engaged. Our group said that this was the best holiday party that they have experienced. They were all so surprised because it was indeed different from our usual dinners and boat rides. Thank you so much for showing us that we can be temporary "chefs", have fun and enjoy our food.

I booked today’s class for the first time for my 11 year old daughter, at first she was reluctant to go but by the end of the class she did not want to leave. She had an amazing time! They made stuffed pasta shells, Caesar salad and ginger bread cookies. The owners are amazing super attentive, hospitable and genuine. It is not easy to find a place where you can come together with people you don’t even know and connect so naturally. Chef Maria and Arthur share a passion for the kitchen and bringing people together. While the kids are cooking, parents are able to watch from the loft and can take pictures. You can also enjoy their cafe (which by the way serves AMAZING FOOD) and meet people who are there for the same reason. It’s an organized environment which makes it possible for the kids to engage and be receptive to the cooking instructions. We will definitely be back!!!!! Thank you Maria and Arthur!

Such a great experience!! Girls had a blast!!♥️♥️
Tonight I went for a pasta class with my girlfriend and it was our first experience attending a cooking class. Our experience was beyond our expectations...Chef Maria tough us how to make a Salad Tortellini with Ricota filling. Everything from the pasta to the dressing were all done from scratch. Main course was Tagliatelle pasta with Mushrooms. A simple pasta dish but it was delicious 😋. I highly recommend for the foodies that live to eat to try an experience with Chef Maria. Always can learn something new and useful that can make the dishes above the beyond. 👍👍 two thumbs up
Chef Maria and Arthur are some of the nicest people around! They’ve built a fantastic business around teaching kids and adults. Their “school” is in a light filled gorgeous space full of energy and happiness! I highly recommend them.
Such a fun and interactive experience. Highly recommend the Peruvian class though we plan on trying the pasta and sushi classes too. Beautiful space and knowledgeable chefs.
Awesome place!!!100% recommended
great experience. I recommend it
It was my daughters Christmas gift to me. Not only was it an evening of mother /daughter bonding, it was fun and the food was healthy, aromatic and so delicious. A big thank you to Chef Maria who was amazing, and to my daughter....best gift ever, thank you!! Love you to the moon and back!! Highly recommend. Raisa 😋
Taking kids cooking classes to another level!! Thank you!! ❤️🎄💚 Boys had a great time!
We had our girl’s party here and all I can say it was AMAZING!!! I totally recommend it 😊.
Shared the afternoon with Karina as our chef. No cooking experience required as she walks you through the process. Shared many tips regarding wholesome eating and where to find ingredients at home. Wonderful flavors and the nicest person you could ever meet! And there was wine ;) We would definitely recommend this place to others.
chef Maria is the best real nice and friendly and humble. And her food healthy and good. 🤗
Have taken quite a few classes there. Chef Maria is great. She lives up to her motto “we don’t change the recipe just the ingredients”. Healthy alternatives. Loki g forward to my next class.
delicious food and great atmosphere...highly recommend
