Australian-born Sue Quinn is a full-time cookery writer and journalist. She was strongly influenced by the cooking of the Italian, Greek, Lebanese and other migrant communities of multi-cultural Sydney, where she was born and raised. A former national newspaper journalist and foreign correspondent, she has also drawn on her extensive travels as inspiration for a number of cookery books.
Murdoch Books will publish her latest title, Easy Vegan, in the UK in March 2015. Previous titles include The Kids Only Cook Book (2013, Quadrille), 10 Minute Cooking (2013, Hachette), Crackers (2013, Hachette), Easy Japanese Cooking (2012, Hachette), Easy Spanish Cooking (2011, Hachette). This year she completed work on three further healthy cookery titles for Hachette, to be published in 2015, covering salads, sugar-free cooking and super foods.
Sue’s work has also appeared in the Guardian, The Telegraph, Delicious magazine, Dorset Magazine and The Foodie Bugle, including recipes and articles about food trends, ingredients and producers. She is also a regular columnist for the Bournemouth Echo, writing recipes that celebrate seasonal, locally produced ingredients.
Sue lives by the sea in Dorset with her husband and two children, who all share her love of making the most of the area’s glorious fresh produce.
