About sue


I'm an award-winning food writer, journalist and cookbook author. My articles and recipes regularly appear in the UK's leading food publications including the Telegraph, the Sunday Times, the Guardian, Delicious, BBC Good Food and Sainsbury's magazines. I've written thirteen cookbooks (with one in progress and another due for release next month) on a range of topics, from Japanese and Spanish cuisine to children’s cookery and healthy eating. My latest title, Roasting Tray Magic (Quadrille, November 2017) has been hugely well received.

I'm always interested in commissions for food and food/travel articles, recipes and recipe development. Please get in touch via email at suequinn66@gmail.com or use the contact button below. You will also  find me on Twitter and Insta @penandspoon. 

I live by the sea in Dorset with my husband Adam, children Ruby and Ben, and cute hound Cookie.

I sometimes review books, restaurants and hotels on these pages - but only the ones I really love. I do accept review copies of books, but I only review restaurants and hotels that I pay for myself. I don't review unsolicited product samples.




Sue was awarded the prestigious Fortnum & Mason Award for Online Food Writer 2016 for articles that appeared in The Telegraph and Guardian newspapers.
