Obsession 2007

Nerves jangling. Adrenaline pumping. Emotions never far from the surface. Friendships tested, pushed to the limits...and then redoubled. Temperatures rising. Then laughter breaking the tension. This is the pursuit of perfection that is...Obsession!

WELCOME TO THE 7TH ANNUAL FESTIVAL OF FOOD & WINE
22ND – 28TH JANUARY 2007

Reputations on the line. Compromise not an option. Seven of Europe’s pre-eminent chefs conspiring to create the ultimate food experience. Obsession ’07. Seven nights of pure genius, pure mayhem, pure delight.

7 legendary chefs. 7 egos. 7 heavenly talents.

“During January the nights are long. But nowhere are they longer than here at Northcote where our evenings are filled with a passion for perfection...before we drift well into the wee small hours, high on adrenalin, achievement and anticipation of the next night to come. Until that is, we reach the final night...exhausted, exhilarated, ecstatic at having come together to create another entirely unique event...wondering already how we can surpass it next year.
Welcome once more to our Obsession!”
