Nostalgic, comfortable, with a tour of Vienna thrown in. I particularly appreciated the four pages devoted to the Christmas Eve carp: when one marries into a family with Eastern or Mittel European heritage, one comes to understand the importance of these things. In fact, the food in this book was generally glorious. There's always something that I end up side-eyeing in Ibbotson's 'real world' books: in this case it was the stereotyped pre-war Prussians. But I enjoyed 'The Star of Kazan' for its insistence on good food, and the importance of the family that makes you its own.
