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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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
- Yamit Lemoine

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!
- Andrea Lopez

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
- Marlene Valdes

Great learning camp!

★★★★★
My 9 year old daughter loved this camp! She not only learned how to prepare meals, they also teach the kids how to eat right and how to read labels. The only negative is that some of the foods may be TOO healthy for the kids. Its very Vegan style and not many kids like Veggie burgers. My daughter many times did not eat lunch because meals were not very kid friendly. They should be at least 2 choices for lunch meals.
- Berangely Cid

Great time

★★★★★
She had a great time learning ingredients, how they go to get her and the fabulous teachers. She had a wonderful week
- Bob Hetzler

Cooking Camp

★★★★★
This was an amazing experience for Angelina. She learned how to better perfect her cooking skills and in a healthy way. In addition, with all the issues with COVID-19, the camp was professional and safe with regards to taking precaution with our children.
- Michelle Febres

Truly Amazing Summer Camp!

★★★★★
I can't say enough good things about this summer camp. My 11 year old daughter would like to go every week of the summer! She is so excited every day at pick-up to tell me about what they cooked, the creative use of healthy ingredients, the great new friends she made, and the stories from the chefs. This is truly something our family looks forward to every summer and will continue to attend every possible summer!
- Tonia Long

Great summer camp

★★★★☆
My daughter loved this summer camp. She got to cook her own breakfast lunch and dessert in a healthy way.
- Linda

Never Dsiappointing!

★★★★★
From start to finish The Real Food Academy was an absolute pleasure to have at our school. Both Arthur and his Assistant were very quick with setting up and efficent with using all their time with the students. The expierence was a lot of fun for both the kids & teachers and we can't wait to invite The Real Food Academy back to our facility!
- Amanda Luis

Loving Real Food!

★★★★★
Never would I have imagined that our daughter would learn as much as she did in her week at the Real Food Academy! Each day she woke up excited to return. Her awareness of food, preparation, cooking and overall health have improved radically. She's connecting the dots! We couldn't recommend you enough. We'll be back!
- Charles Perez

Amazing Experience

★★★★★
My 11 year old son had an absolute blast during summer camp, so much so that he wants to go back for another week. The staff at Real Food Academy went out of their way to accommodate his food restrictions and he was still able to participate, cook and bake with modifications. We will be back again!

I love the Real Food Academy! In my last class we made our very own pizzas and I loved the sauce made from scratch. I also loved the vegan salad dressing which was delicious & important for me to learn bc my parents are vegan. Thank you RFA! I love you! @sofiatheprincesschef

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!
Such a great experience!! Girls had a blast!!♥️♥️
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.
