Tracy Griffith to Host Dinner and Cooking Class at Six Senses Laamu
Tracy Griffith is an American actress and chef. She is the daughter of actor and producer Peter Griffith and model/actress Nanita Greene, and the older sister of production designer and set decorator Clay A. Griffith. She is also the half-sister of actress Melanie Griffith. She is married to Mark Daley, president of Polo Ralph Lauren, Asia.
As the first female graduate of the California Sushi Academy, Tracy is well-accustomed to trailblazing in the sushi field. In the beginning of her sushi career, customers would constantly say “I don’t like raw fish. What else can you make me?” or “Ya got anything cooked back there?” At first, she would wonder, Why are these people here? Why don’t they go to Burger King?, but then she started thinking about the prospects that cooked sushi could offer. Inspired by these less-than-intrepid but eager sushi-eaters, Tracy created ‘SUSHI AMERICAN STYLE’. Sure, at first a fried-chicken roll seemed a little unusual, but it tasted great and her customers raved about it. At last, sushi everyone could love!
