American sushi expert Marisa Baggett has been working passionately for years to perfect sushi recipes that take full advantage of the freshest garden vegetables, herbs, tofu, mushrooms and spices available at your local farmer’s market or co-op. This vegetarian cookbook offers completely new ways for localvores to enjoy their CSA and market vegetables with sushi rice. This is the ultimate farm-to-table book with creative Asian flair! Marisa not only shows you how to make the usual thick and thin rolls but other types of sushi that are just as delicious—and even easier to make!

These recipes are about combining delicious rice with tantalizing pairings you might not have tried or thought of before, such as:

  • Apple & daikon radish
  • Cucumber & peanut
  • Spicy carrot & tomato
  • Pomegranate & basil
  • Ginger & beet
  • Summer corn & pickled okra
  • Sweet potato & shiitake mushrooms
  • Strawberry & rhubarb


About Marisa

Marisa Baggett arrived in Los Angeles from her home in Mississippi with one goal in mind: to learn as much as she could about great sushi. At the California Sushi Academy she studied sushi preparation, sushi culture and how to make other Japanese dishes. She became the school’s first black female graduate and returned to her Southern home to share her “Southern-style sushi.” She teaches workshops on sushi making, caters sushi events, and works with caterers in the Memphis Jewish community to supply kosher sushi for special events. She is the author of Sushi Secrets: Easy Recipes for the Home Cook.
