About Me

Picture date

My name is Sue Quinn and I’m a full-time cookery writer and journalist. I grew up in Sydney, Australia, where I was strongly influenced by the cooking of the Italian, Greek, Lebanese and other migrant communities. A former national newspaper journalist and foreign correspondent, I’ve also drawn on my extensive travels as inspiration for my cookery books and food writing.

My latest cookery book, Easy Vegan, will be published Murdoch Books in the UK in March 2015 and in Australia in January 2015.  My other cookery books 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). I’ve also recently completed work on three further healthy cookery titles for Hachette covering salads, sugar-free cooking and super foods.

When I’m not writing cookery books or following my stomach on food travels, I also write regularly for the Guardian, The Telegraph, Delicious magazine, Dorset Magazine and The Foodie Bugle, contributing recipes and articles about food trends, ingredients and producers. I also write a regular column for the Bournemouth Echo, that features recipes celebrating the wonderful ingredients produced in Dorset, where I live with my husband and two children.

    Hi, found you searching for pomegranate molasses! I bought some home-made from Horseguards Pub in Tillington and thought how tangy it was compared to the shop bought ones. I use it for a Turkish breakfast dish, feta cheese in evoo and thyme, green olives and tomatos with a viaigrette of raspberry vinegar and the molasses. Nice clear website. My daughter’s is Say Food Say Me!
