Alicia Silverstone, Vegan Cheese
Actor, animal rights activist, author, and the reason everybody was running around in 1995 saying “As if!” Alicia Silverstone joins Rachel on this episode of YLM!
The “Clueless” star admits that although she’s been vegan since 1998, she’s most tempted by a delicious cheese, so we talk to Youssef Fakhouri, owner of Alicia’s (and LA’s) favorite vegan cheese shop Vromage.
And remember that 2012 video of Alicia feeding her child like a baby bird? It caused quite the stir, so Rachel gets to the bottom of “premastication” with Melanie Martin, post-doctoral associate at Yale University in the field of Biological Anthropology.
