planning on sushi next week, but it would not be complete without the wasabi. Any recommendations for where to get or how to make wasabi? I presume it is not raw in the form we see most often at stores.

Buy some wasabi root from a local asian market or order it online. You then fine grate the wasabi root for real wasabi.

The easier way would be to make a "western wasabi" using horseradish root, as you are much more likely to locate that. You add ground mustard seed and a green herb of some kind to give it a green color.
Frontier does sell wasabi root in powdered form, however, I think it has been heated to enzyme destroying temperatures.

heat kills the wasabi taste, so if it has been heated, it wouldn't have the wasabi pungency anymore

can anyone confirm whether or not frontier wasabi powder is raw?

Wasabi powder may or may not be raw. Please post the manufacturer and I will investigate it.
