The world has lost an incredible talent and warmhearted soul with the passing of legendary writer and filmmaker Nora Ephron. In case some readers need a slight reminder of her vast body of work, her memorable films that give so much respect to New York City include When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, and Julie and Julia.
Nora had a passion for food and she was an excellent cook who understood the link between community and the joy of eating. I hold many fond memories of Nora, as she was always a loyal supporter of the Red Rooster. When she would come in she would make her way around the restaurant, curious to know about the diners. Perhaps she was finding the fuel to inspire her next lovable character.
Her humorous and insightful spirit will be dearly missed.
