Obsession 2016

Sixteen years of culinary excellence at Northcote

It’s was feast in every sense of the word, a celebration, a fiesta, a festival of incredible food... and wine.

But Obsession is not just about the food, the wines, the service, it's not formulas that make great festivals, it’s the people; the chefs; the staff and the guests at the 16th year of Obsession, when we celebrated 16 nights of pure gastronomic brilliance!

Take a look below at the line up of our 16th festival - we had chefs joining us from Mexico… South Africa… Japan…Taiwan… Poland… Italy… Jersey… France and the UK.

You can also view all the menus and photos from each evening!
