John Oliano a retired chief executive and co-founder of an international electronics firm developed his love of cooking and regional Italian cuisine while traveling extensively throughout Italy where prominent Italian companies employed his ultrasonic nondestructive testing products.

He often persuaded the chefs of the Italian eateries where he has dined to give him a tour of their kitchens and the secrets of house recipes.
