"Marisa takes my all-time favorite food--sushi--and makes it doable at home. Don't be scared; she's going to walk you through each step. Adding her own inventive twists, Marisa's sushi recipes are everything that food should be--beautiful, delicious, and fun."--Melissa Petersen, editor and publisher of "Edible Memphis Magazine"

Marisa Bagget arrived in Los Angeles from her home in Mississippi with one goal in mind: to learn as much as she could about preparing great sushi. At the California Sushi Academy she not only studied sushi preparation, but also sushi culture and other Japanese dishes. Her enthusiasm and passion for this flavorful cuisine grew and she became the school's first black female graduate. Since her return to the South, she has gained regional and international recognition for her sushi. She teaches workshops on sushi making, caters sushi events, and works with caterers in the Memphis Jewish community on supplying kosher sushi for special events.
