Wonderful Field Trip!!

★★★★★
Our school loved to have The Food Academy visit our school. Everything was well organized and very hands-on. All of the students had lots of fun. We will definitely be booking another field trip with them for the 2021-2022 school year!

Great experience

★★★★★
My 5 and 8 year old kids had such a great time at their first cooking class. They cannot wait to go back and I had a great time watching from a distance and learning tips. And the fact that my kids made and enjoyed eating their cupcakes made with zucchini is a plus for me! I love how nutritional education is incorporated into the class. I highly recommend for all ages!

Comfortable in the Kitche

★★★★★
My daughter who is in her tween started with The Real Food Academy about 2 years ago. I am appreciative of the confidence she developed in the kitchen. She can prepare and concoct her own food which are good enough. Only thing is she leaves me all the dishes and the cleaning up. I will send a note next time that she is allowed to help clean up after after the class.

Unique Family Experience

★★★★★
We were debating on what to do during these pandemic times so that our daughter may have a nice experience on her birthday. We made an excellent choice with The Real Food Academy. From planning through the actual event, everything was properly thought out, hosted and executed. Art and Maria were welcoming and patient as we set out to socially distance 19 guests per family unit. I couldn't ask for a more memorable experience for my daughter's 9th birthday. The adults had just as much fun as the kids! From start to finish, it was actually her favorite birthday to date! Thanks RFA Team!

Amazing Corporate cooking class

★★★★★
We had a group of 11ppl for a cooking class. Our group was a Board of Trustees. Chef Giuseppe was amazing and the group was so excited about their experience. We would love to bring back a group there again in the future.

14th Birthday

★★★★★
I celebrated my daughter’s 14th birthday at the Real Food Academy on 1/23. We enjoyed every moment. The establishment is beautiful..very inviting and comfortable. Our chef was as gracious and knowledgeable as we could have imagined. The food we made was delicious...a wonderful ladies night for my daughter and her favorite friends. Everyone wants to go again very soon.
- Kristen

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!
- Jessica Sumont

Great class

★★★★★

10th Magical Birthday

★★★★★
My daughter’s 10th bday was celebrated at The Real Food Academy, and let me just say, it was MAGICAL INDEED! Art, Maria, and the rest of the staff were AMAZING! They made all of our guests feel safe (covid measures were adhered to and followed) and comfortable as well as pampered and treated as 5 star guests! The girls had a blast making their pasta and garlic bread and truly worked off their pasta calories with a great Zumba workout and dance party! The Real Food Academy was the BEST way to celebrate our precious girl.
- Leslie

Happy Days

★★★★★
The cupcakes were delicious. I learned about making them healthy and good to eat. First, we needed to make them with a lot of ingredients, like the carrot cupcakes. I enjoyed being Chef Isa’s helper too!
- Alexandrea

Friday night family dinner

★★★★★
We had an incredible experience. We had dinner for our son‘s 15th birthday with family. We maked our own pasta and bruschetta! It was an incredible experience. Also, Chef Giuseppe and his assistant were extremely attentive and helpful. A+ all the way. Everyone actively participated with so much enthusiasm, from ages of 5 to 55. Definitely one of the best birthday celebratIons!

Great after school program

★★★★★
My daughter is doing the after school program at Real Food Academy and she loves it. She is super shy so it is always difficult to have her attending activities, but she always super exited to go to her cooking class and she is so proud to cook food that tastes so good !! And me, I like the fact that the chef is teaching the kids to cook healthy food !!
- Valerie

We love RFA!

★★★★★
Our kids have been taking weekend classes for years. This summer we joined camp and started after school classes for our oldest. She has learned amazing new kitchen skills, made great friends and loves her visits to Real Food Academy!
- Lisa J.

Little Chef in the Making!

★★★★★
Our 9 year old son has been eager to participate in the kitchen, but my lack of patience and willingness to accept the mess and mistakes made it very difficult. Summer Camp at the RFA has given him the skills, discipline and creativity to flourish. After each day, he’s excited to share with us what he learned and always brings back delicious treats for us to try. This weekend he offered to help me in the kitchen and I could already Notice a big difference in his approach. Our little Chef in the making, we are so proud!
- Julie Milroy

She had an awesome beautiful day!

★★★★★
Hi! I just wanted to let you guys know that my daughter Kaya attended your camp for the first time today. She's 14. Being a teen, she's sometimes hard to please. I picked her up at 3pm AND SHE HAD THE BIGGEST SMILE ON HER FACE. SHE HAD AN AWESOME BEAUTIFUL DAY. Looking forward to the week. Wish there was more. Just wanted to thank you so much. <3

My Boys Loved this Camp!

★★★★★
My two boys, 7 and 8, had a great time at the Real Food Cooking Camp! Each day they were excited to learn what they'd be cooking. They learned about nutrition and had fun getting hands on with food. I hope to be able to send them again in the future!

He was eager to cook for the family every day.

My son attended summer camp at the Real Food Academy. He had a great time learning cooking essentials, meeting new friends, and trying new foods. He was eager to cook for the family every day. We would definitely try it again! Thank you
- Jessica Ceballos

My 13 y/o loved it!

★★★★★
I was skeptical with COVID but they followed the rules very well and plenty of space for social distancing! My 13 y/o attended this camp and loved it. It was a great combination of very good food, technique, great Camp leaders and knowledge on nutrition. She is now correcting me on knife technique. She is going back in a couple of weeks for more! Thank you so much!
- Julia Santeliz

Awesome Camp

★★★★★
It is an amazing camp, my son attended and he loved every minute of it, he learned many skills while having fun!
- Azin Amirshahi

Amazing camp!

★★★★★
While visiting Miami this summer we signed our son up for camp. He loved it. Always coming home with a goodie he made. Always excited to try and cook it at home. Even starting to make up his own dishes. Thank you for a wonderful camp for our son. Too bad we don’t live here full time.
- K. Willow Ayers

Educational and fun!

★★★★★
My daughter attended camp for one week at the Real Food Academy. She had a great time and learned a lot of new concepts not only about cooking and baking but about nutrition and health. This experience has given her the opportunity to become more independent about her food consumption and to making healthier choices when it comes to food. She now enjoys creating new salads and using fresh and healthy ingredients in her dishes. I highly recommend the experience here!
- Vi

Happy we chose this camp!

★★★★★
My kids are fairly shy and were skeptical. My youngest had no interest to try this camp. But I am happy to say both my sons enjoyed it and came home happy to share about all they learned. It was a great choice and I will sign them up again. Also, good to note it was during Covid times and they were very clean and took the health of the kids seriously.
- Carrie DeCastro

Awesome camp experience

★★★★★
What a pleasant surprise to come across your academy. My daughter Isabella absolutely loved it. Not only do I have a budding chef but now I have somewhere she was so happy and entertained while learning about food and cooking it! The experience has been so wonderful my older daughter is going to take a cooking class at your academy this July. And lastly, thank you for taking COVID-19 concerns so seriously, us moms truly appreciate it. We will definitely see you in the future. Thank you again, Marlene Valdes

This was a wonderful gift from my daughter for my birthday. We spent the evening preparing healthy Thanksgiving side dishes and I was amazed that healthy also meant super tasty and fun! We made gluten free corn bread muffins, quinoa stuffing, cranberry sauce, roasted Brussels with lemon aioli and creamy cauliflower mash - all really delicious. Our chef was amazing - friendly, informative and made everyone feel welcome. Everything was spotlessly clean and beautifully done. We will be back again - thank you!

What a great find! This is a hidden gem we stumbled on after moving to the Shores. We have tried so many healthy food places but it’s so hard to find one that is consistently good. This is the one! Everything I have tried has been on point. I love the Miami Spice Bowl, Impossible Burger, Taco Salad, Inka Bowl.... cannot wait to try the rest of their menu. Staff is super friendly & service is great too!!! Get out and help support this local business. They deserve it! 🙌

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 wonderful time she is signing up for another week. In the mean time we bought the ingredients to all the healthy, yummy items she made!

Lo novedoso...de cocinar lo que vamos a comer...😋😋 Excelente la atención!
awesome experience for the kids.
Good, wholesome, and constructive time for the kids. The location has ample space and Chef Maria is awesome. My 11 year old daughter has been 3 times and loves it.
The people there was super nice and I like how the chefs would explain everything to the kids, especially when handling sharp objects.
Everything about The Real Food Academy is great. The staff, the place, the cleanliness, the recipes, the cafè…Our 5-year-old loved coming here for their Summer Camp. Between cooking and other activities, days hit the perfect balance of life skills and fun. We will definitely come back!
We had a team event last night! Chef Maria was awesome, and patient. Great time had by all!
