This cooking class was started in the hope that all participants will be able to enjoy a sense of season through the lessons.

It is also a kind of cooking salon which develops small classes with a detailed curriculum based on the motto of providing more joy of learning through cooking, and the pleasure of savoring delicious food.

We look forward to enjoying happy times around the cooking table together, introducing you to japanese traditional crafts, artist's dishes and cooking devices. 



Hanae Kaede

Founder of the cooking studio atelier kafuné

Born in Fukagawa, Tokyo.

Graduate from Aoyama Gakuin University, Bachelor of French Literature.


After experience as the editorial designer at Figaro Japon, I decided to start my career in cuisine.

I went to France to learn how to make confectionary at Le Cordon Bleu Paris and French cuisine at Ecole Superieure de Cuisine Francaise. Then I received the CAP Cuisine certificate (french certificat d'aptitude professionnelle ) there.

After five-years’ experience working at several star rated restaurants ​in Paris such as Astrans, Arpege, Le Meurice, Le Bristol and training at the world-famous butcher Hugo Desnoyer, I came back to Japan.

The different food experience in Paris made me think of my roots; `traditional Japanese food’.

After I got back to Japan, I entered Tsuji Cooking Laboratory, to finish a specialized course in Japanese Food and worked at Japanese authentique restaurant.


My Work:

I worked as a teacher at the cooking school, as caterer for parties and receptions, as a researcher for food program , at the same time as developing recipes and products for clients.

I opened the cooking studio ‘Atelier Kafuné’ in Monzen-nakacho, Tokyo in 2020.
