"Every home needs at least one Marcella Hazan Italian cookbook. Her new memoir deserves to become as classic as her recipes."
-"O Magazine"

"What is striking about this memoir is the quiet way that preparing food, something Hazan almost took for granted in her first 30 years, became the thing she had to offer the world."
-"Los Angeles Times"

"Hazan's memoir is a terrific history of the expansive, postwar period when Americans were still learning the difference between linguine and Lambrusco, and an engaging chronicle of professional perseverance, chance and culinary destiny."
-"Publishers Weekly"
