I am a big fan of Nora Ephron, and am enjoying reading the influx of articles by/about her in the wake of press for Julie & Julia. I also adore (understatement!) Gourmet and really enjoyed this simple piece Ephron recently wrote for it, discussing what she ate over the course of a day or so this summer. She is just such a wonderful writer and an enviable foodie. Aside from her meal and snack descriptions and our shared love of seasonal fruit, I couldn’t resist pulling this quote she ended the article with that 1) I’m sure I have said myself in similar words before, and 2) makes me wish even more that I could meet and have a meal with this woman:
It’s a little funny too because while I certainly know a lot of people who would whole-heartedly agree with this statement, it must sound so bizarre to someone who just doesn’t care that much about or have a strong interest in food… and I can only imagine this to the extent that the mere notion of not feeling this way seems so foreign and beyond strange to me, so I’m guessing the same is true for people on the other side of the fence.
