You’ve heard of singing for your supper – but what about hunting for your lunch? To celebrate his recent appointment as the top chef at Borough Market favorite, Roast, Chef Marcus Verberne has devised a unique, monthly treasure hunt that culminates in a rather delicious fashion. Based in the stunning Floral Hall building overlooking the market, Roast opened in 2005. Since then it has earned widespread acclaim for an offering that focuses on beautiful roast meats, game, and fresh fish all made using the finest seasonal British ingredients. Much of Roast's products are sourced directly from Borough traders.

In order to prepare such a feast, Marcus will first need the best British produce the local area can offer. Therefore, he will divide the party into teams, giving each an ingredient and suppliers’ list, as well as a budget. The groups will then be instructed to head off to the Borough Market and the hunt will begin! The participants may have to pay a visit to Neal’s Yard for buttermilk, or Sillfield Farm for wild boar pancetta. Meanwhile, a quick stop off at Furness Fish & Game could reap rewards in the shape of some fresh cod fillet and clams. Arriving back at Roast with their treasures, the teams can relax whilst Marcus gets to work.


Open to groups of 8-12, participants will be treated to one of Marcus’ incomparable lunches. Menus will change according to the season; however, a typical layout may comprise of a starter of mixed beets with Ragstone goat’s cheese and wild herbs, a main course of pan-fried fillet of cod with surf clams in Kingston Black Cider accompanied by wild boar bacon, and concluding with a dessert of buttermilk pudding with poached Yorkshire rhubarb and stem ginger.

Roast’s Treasure Hunt will launch to the public on April 5, 2012, and will then be held on the first Thursday of each month. Perfect as a gift, a corporate exercise, or for anyone who loves food, the price will be £85 per head. This will include a glass of champagne on arrival, bar snacks, the market treasure hunt, a three-course menu, and coffee or tea.
