The Convivial Cookbook
Over 20 years, the group has spent a good proportion of their days together on tour. This has brought the group closer and one of the things they love doing most is cooking and eating together after a hard day's work. Over the last two decades, our double bassist, Lucy Hare, has gathered many of the recipes of dishes created together in a book, 'The Convivial Cookbook', to celebrate this exceptional group of musicians who met in an attic in Oxford as virtual strangers and have now become the closest and dearest of friends.

The recipes are designed as quick and easy meals to be cooked for friends, from soups through to desserts, and even a special section on washing up! It is beautifully illustrated with monoprints by Isabel Knowland.
