Letter of the Week: What is ELV Eschewing with VEGENATION?

Dear ELV,

I saw this clip of you on Wake Up With the Wagners last Friday and immediately turned to my husband and said, “It’s only a matter of time until Curtas eschews the dark side and goes full plantal.” He said I was crazy — after I told him what “eschew” meant. What say you ELV? Is a conversion to the joys of brown rice, soy milk and tofurkey in your future?

Vegetally yours,

Wheat Germ Wendy

FERRARO’S Gets Its Closeup on Wake Up With the Wagners

ELV note: Tomorrow morning, in a first for us and KSNV TV, we will be featuring an actual, dyed-in-the-wool vegan restaurant on Wake Up With the Wagners. So, in order to retain some balance in our life (and some self-respect), we at ELV thought we’d post last week’s video featuring the most un-vegan-like cuisine we could think of…brought to you by an old favorite that just keeps getting better and better.

JAPANEIRO on Wake Up With the Wagners

ELV note: Chef/owner Kevin Chong informed us (as we spoke to him in our transplendent white seersucker suit last Friday while he was putting together this tasty spread for the morning news show), that “Japaneiro” means “Japanese-like.” He also said his food is inspired by Japanese cuisine, but he wants it to reflect his love of fusion food and his mixed Asian heritage (he’s Malaysian by birth). We told him he’s pulling off all of these mixed metaphors beautifully….as you’ll see below.
