Obsession 16 Launch Party

The Dovetail Agency

The Dovetail Agency were excited this week to attend the launch party of the legendary Obsession gastronomic event, hosted at the Northcote hotel, Lancashire annually.  

Returning for its 16th year from the 22nd January until the 7th February 2016, the event will be an unprecedented 16- night showcase of internationally renowned culinary talent.  Obsession 16 will see 18 Michelin Starred chefs descend on Northcote to present their skills in a series of show-stopping dinners with a true global flavour. 

Chef patron Nigel Haworth will hand over the reigns of his kitchen to an international line-up including Mark Jordan from Ocean Restaurant at The Atlantic Hotel who Dovetail have been proud to work with for a number of years. In addition, guests will enjoy the culinary delights of Jean-Luc Rocha; Annie Feolde; Hideaki Matuso; Lanshu Chen; Diego Hernadez & Wojcich Modest Amaro. 

Head chef Nigel Haworth introduces Obsession 2016 in Northcote's Magazine, and said:"The list is never complete without young and inspiring British talent with Mark Jordan"

Each guest will be treated to a stunning five course menu together with a Louis Roederer Bruit Premier and canapé reception. Food and wine pairing will be at the top of its game as the award-winning wine team will match a different wine to every single course throughout the 16 nights.
