Obsession is Northcote’s annual homage to the finest food and wine, established as one of Europe's premier gastronomic events. Each chef challenges themselves to produce a unique Obsession Menu. Each dish is meticulous in construction and a feast for all the senses.

In 2018 Northcote is celebrating 18 years of this gastronomic event Obsession by inviting 21 world class chefs with 16 Michelin stars between Thursday 18th January to Sunday 4th February 2018.
