Through the Keyhole with

Doggart & Squash

We catch-up with Clare Doggart and Sarah Haggie, co-founders of London-based catering companyDoggart & Squash. We get their recommendations for keeping spirits high, from the perfect cocktail recipe to where to stock up on feel-good treats.

In a nutshell: Doggart and Squash are a boutique caterer, creating heavenly menus for events across the UK. Since lockdown, Clare & Sarah have (in lightning speed!) started a delivery service for boxes of fresh fruit and veg, with the prettiest British flowers by Lucy Vail.
