Anyone convert a non-foodie?

I am happy to have helped convert my DH into almost as big a foodie as me. While he still loves fast food more than I, he will spend as much time menu planning and restaurant hunting as I will for trips and special occasions. Before we met, he had never really eaten anything but burgers and Taco Bell, now he LOVES duck, creme brulee, Bok Choy (unless I cook it!), even curries! I am so glad because I don't think I could have lived without those things.

So my question is, have any of you converted a non foodie friend or family member into someone who really embraces good eating? Better yet, do you have a dish you cooked or took them out to eat that did the trick and changed their life? I would love to know.
