When the Huffington Post asked me, a 37-year-old married father of two, if I wanted to enter a cooking competition to win a trip to Hong Kong with a 25-year-old girl I'd never met, it was a real no-brainer.

I'm a firm believer that being positive is always a bigger win, personally and professionally, than being negative. Looking on the bright side, seeing the glass half full, trusting that every cloud has a silver lining - they may well feel like clichés but they fundamentally lie at the heart of the way I choose to live.

Thus, my mother had always told me that I had to learn to love cooking before becoming a mum. Not merely to learn to cook, but to learn to love cooking.
