Was there a "moment"

I was wondering if there was some moment in your life when you realized that you wanted to do what you are doing. Something you ate that inspired you, a trip you took, a restaurant you visited. Even though you grew up surrounded with people who cook, not everyone would follow that path with such passion and devote so much time and energy to learning the craft...and teach others about it.
perhaps this is a silly question, but in general I think that most people don't discover their "true calling," so to me, it is fascinating to hear how those who have discovered it came to find it. (Of course, assuming that being a chef/restauranteur/teacher of Italian cooking actually IS your true calling.)
p.s. I am coming to NYC in two weeks and am very grateful that I have speed dial and was able to secure a res at Babbo during my trip!!
