I've been obsessed with food all my life. It began with learning to cook by my mum's side and has ended, so far at least, with me making olive oil for a living. My company is called Nudo, and our philosophy has always taken a love of food as its starting point. We make quite good extra virgin olive oil, we let people adopt our olive trees, and we also sell products that are made by some of the most skilled and passionate producers in Italy. This work has given me the opportunity -- some might say the cover story -- to obsessively seek out the best producers, the best products, and some of the best countryside that Italy has to offer.
