Were you able to find the "food sample" hidden in the picture of the hamburger set?

Fake Food Cooking conducts lessons on how to make food samples at home, mainly in the Saitama and Tokyo areas.

Would you also like to try making food samples that look just like the real thing?


Hello, my name is Noriko Watanabe, founder of Fake Food Cooking.

I make actual size to miniature food samples from a wide range of food genres.

Ever since I started private lessons at my home in 2018, I’ve met a number of students, and together, we’ve been having so much fun making food samples.

If you are interested in food samples, or if you are interested in handicraft, come join us in having fun making food samples together!




Some people may think it’s only natural for food samples to look like the real thing, but each artist has their own style of designing and crafting their food samples (some prefer to make their food samples look slightly artificial on purpose).

Here at Fake Food Cooking, we aim to create food samples that look so realistic that one might actually think to eat them.

While making food samples together, we end up having a great time chatting about our personal lives or making small talk with each other.

At Fake Food Cooking, we make sure students feel “right at home” while making their food samples.

The space is decorated with many food samples, so it’s perfect for those who love samples. The teacher is also very friendly and teaches you step-by-step, so even first-timers can enjoy making their own samples. It’s the kind of class that makes you want to come back the next time.

I was wondering if it was possible to make food samples at home. I did a lot of research and was able to meet Ms. Watanabe. I always admire the way she teaches, how she produces her colors, and how she paints her objects so realistically. I also respect her gift of the gab!

I took the plunge and started taking lessons, but my child was still so young, so I was worried about sudden schedule changes. But since the teacher is also a mother who has raised children, she was extremely accommodating. Through class, I got to know people of different age groups and backgrounds. Together, we challenged ourselves to many different things, such as becoming an instructor, or organizing and participating in events together—none of which we had imagined we’d end up doing. I am grateful to my teacher and fellow students for enriching my life in many ways!
