From Library Journal:

Lots of ups, not many downs, in the early life of a woman best known as a prolific writer of excellent cookbooks. Daughter of an Italian mother and a German father who spent her growing-up years in Rome, Milan, Berlin, Switzerland, and England, Hazelton begins her story in the early 1920s and ends it just before the outbreak of World War II, when she left Europe for good for the United States. She has a sharp eye for description but seldom writes about herself with much emotion ("I have always essentially remained an observer who refers to the observed as 'they,"' she remarks). This air of detachment, and the fact that the story ends long before she turned to the writing career of her maturity, makes this a book more meaningful to her friends and acquaintances than to the general public.
