Kittee Bee Berns likes Leslie Hall

The Vegan Person I Like today is Kittee Bee Berns, another awesome Portland resident that I had the good fortune to meet on my recent trips there. Kittee is a lover of Ethiopian food, which you can find out loads more about in her completely vegan and gluten-free cookzine, Papa Tofu Loves Ethiopian Food. Kittee also co-founded the site, xgfx, which is a vegan and gluten-free recipe resource. She also lives with a really great and very particular dog named Vee who let me ever-so-briefly pet him and, more importantly, admire his stunning shaggy coat. Those two are like peas in a pod, Kittee and Vee. I love it. You can also find Kittee at her blog, Cake Maker to the Stars which, among other things, reviews vegan cookzines in a "Vegan Cook-Zine Museum" feature. Brilliant!

The Vegan Thing Kittee Likes is actually a Vegan Person Kittee Likes, Leslie Hall! Since it's Vegan MoFo "Hump Day" (we're nearly halfway through the month!), Kittee's organized a MoFo Flash Mob to promote the new vegan song from her favorite vegan artist. You may see Leslie Hall all over the MoFo feed today!

The vegan thing that I like is Leslie Hall! She is a great performer (she has amazing dance moves and costumes), and if you ever have the chance to see her live, you should be sure to go. My favorite songs are Craft Talk, Gem Sweater and Tight Pants/Body Rolls. Her lyrics are seriously the best.

Since Leslie knows how hard we're all working for Mofo, she wanted to help us celebrate VeganMoFo Hump Day with her vegan song. This song is unreleased, so you can't find it anywhere else! For you, the link is here! You can also read all of the lyrics at Kittee's blog post!
