OBSESSION Food Festival 2015
NOW IN ITS 15th year, the annual OBSESSION festival, run by the Northcote Leisure Group as an homage to the finest food and wine from across the globe, is the only event of its kind in the UK and regularly takes place in January/February each year.
Showcasing some of the world’s best chefs, each presenting a specially curated menu, harmonised wine list and evening of entertainment, this culinary extravaganza promotes Lancashire and the Northwest, the region’s culture and agricultural products. Inaugurated in 2000 by Northcote’s chef patron Nigel Haworth, the festival has grown steadily year by year and tickets always sell out as soon as they are released.
This year, TASTE PORTUGAL will be joining forces with OBSESSION for two Portuguese events: an invitation-only wine master-class on 30th January, and a TASTE OF PORTUGAL dinner later in the evening, prepared by five of the very finest chefs and solid ambassadors for Portuguese cuisine, Dieter Koschina, Matteo Ferrantino, Miguel Laffan, Vitor Matos and José Avillez.
Bringing together these five fine chefs to produce a meal representative of a culinary tradition they are all passionate about is bound to produce something exceptional.
