Recipe from Giovanna Hoang

La Petite Xuyen
Her real name is ThiKim Xuyến (which means bracelet in Vietnamese), but everybody calls her Giovanna, which is much easier to pronounce. Giovanna was born in Vietnam, but has lived in Italy in Milan since the age of 2. She grew up with spring rolls, noodles, phở and curry, but dreamt of lasagna and Milanese cutlet. For her, food is culture, love, passion, life. This is why “La PetiteXuyen” is not only a virtual cuisine, but a culinary window to the world!
