I’m Sue Quinn, the author of this blog. I’m a journalist by training and happily fell into food writing and editing after the birth of my two children. I’ve now written three cook books: Basic Spanish Cooking (2011), Basic Japanese Cooking (2012) and Crackers (2013) for Hachette Livre/Marabout. My fourth, a children’s cookbook, is being published by Quadrille later this year. I also write foodie stuff for the Guardian, Delicious magazine and The Foodie Bugle among others.
As well as writing about food, I have edited a number of cook books and had the good fortune to work with well-known cookery writers including Diana Henry and Alice Hart. When not writing about food or editing cook books, I work as a copywriter.
Originally from Australia and now based on the south-coast of England, I’ve travelled widely, generally following my stomach and arranging itineraries around meal opportunities. My children have been dragged around more food markets than is really reasonable.
I’m not a professional chef. Far from it. But I am a borderline food obsessive with a keen interest in cooking (particularly children’s cooking), ingredients, gadgets and the history of food.
I started my blog on New Years Day 2012 as a receptacle for recipe ideas, reviews about books, gadgets and eateries, and general musings about stuff that’s food-related. It’s intended to amuse, inform and make readers think about what they cook and eat.
I happily accept books and products to review but will not take payment for anything that appears in my blog. (I’m not much interested in writing negative commentary, but will happily shout about good stuff.)
I welcome any opportunity to write about food or edit lovely food writing, so please give me a shout here if you would like to collaborate.
Feedback about my blog, good or bad, is welcome. It’s always nice to know there’s someone out there.
