15 Nights, 25 Chefs, 27 Michelin Stars For Northcote’s 30th

OBSESSION at Northcote has always been what it says on the tin – an obsessive celebration of chef heroes at the home of the North West’s most high profile one, Nigel Haworth (pictured above).

General Tickets are £115 inclusive of Louis Roederer Brut Premier & Canapé Reception and a five-course signature menu

But he and his team - including business partner Craig Bancroft and Head Chef Lisa Allen - have gone into overdrive for the fifteenth such festival of fine dining to celebrate Northcote’s 30 years in existence...

15 nights, 25 chefs with a total of 27 Michelin stars between them.

It’s not just Nigel’s mates from the Great British Menu and assorted London luminaries. The stellar culinary cast are flying in from Austria, Germany Holland, Italy, Portugal, Brazil, South Africa, Thailand and New York.

Obsession 15 runs from Friday 23 January to Saturday 7 February. Each night a chef, or in some cases a gaggle of them, will create a unique five-course menu. Some might quip it’s a case of ‘Too Many Chefs etc...’, but to us it feels like foodie heaven.
