Marissa Fisk is private celeb chef/baker/artist and creator of the former company, French Lavender Bakery. Marissa learned to cook at a young age from her Argentine grandmother, who would shop daily and spent the entire day mastering seasonal, local food. The passion Marissa witnessed as a young child would later inspire her to open her own catering business. She has worked in the restaurant industry for over 15 years, from fine dining to eventually becoming a Special Events Coordinator & Marketing Director. She went to Epicurean Cooking School in Los Angeles.
In 2009, Marissa decided it was time to open her own farmers market business, specializing in local gluten free baked goods.
French Lavender Bakery was created as a farm to table farmers market business. She started with her delicious gluten free banana breads, homemade local strawberry lavender jams, and organic baked goods. Marissa was one of the first vendors at the Brentwood & Downtown farmers markets to feature gluten free items that were not frozen, and gave people with severe food allergies a chance to enjoy fresh baked goods. Eventually French Lavender Bakery evovled into a full service catering company.
In 2012, Marissa became a mother to June and decided to relocate with her husband to Austin. She wanted to be closer to her family that had moved three years prior. In 2016, they settled in Dripping Springs. After four years of working part time, Marissa decided to relaunch a new catering business for other busy families called Marissa Fisk Catering.
She currently lives with her husband & two daughters. Marissa is a recipe contributor for Life in Belterra Magazine and food blogger for Modern Mom Chef. Follow her work & for recipes at IG Handle Modern Mom Chef.
