Question to the foodies

Last night me and my husband talked about this topic after watching Masterchef Australia.  What started it for us?  Both of us had the same answer.  Macaroni and Cheese, but not just any macaroni and cheese.   Macaroni and cheese with crispy proscuitto and bread crumbs on top, a three cheese blend sauce of Gruyere, Parmesan, and American White Sharp Cheddar enhanced with white truffle oil, and baked to a sticky gooey perfection.  It is heaven for macaroni and cheese lovers anywhere.  I cannot wait to make it again and share it with you all in the coming months, but for now I just would like to know more about you, the readers of this blog.

It is the commonalties of food likes and dislikes can spark a fiery debate or friendship.  Creating new friends from old aquatints or even strangers bringing us closer together or maybe further apart.  Food brings out a passion to defend that love, but what sparked it?  Everyone here has a love for food or we would not be blogging, looking up and drooling over food porn, trying to prefect our pictures for our blogs, or just looking for better and maybe healthier recipes online for friends and family.  Food is a passion, it could for most of us be brought back to one dish or meal that changed our lives and outlook on food. Going past just the need for sustainability for life, food became more, a passion, a love. Something we desire to share with friends and family or strangers. So, I ask you.

What is the one dish/meal/tradition that changed your life towards food and why?
