21 star chefs will descend on Lancashire in the new year for the Northcote’s annual celebration of culinary excellence

The Northcote, the luxury hotel and restaurant in Lancashire run by chef Nigel Haworth, is preparing to host its annual foodie celebration, Obsession for the 18th year running. Obsession 18 will run from January 18 to February 4 next year, bringing 21 world class chefs, with 16 Michelin stars between them, to the Northcote.

Each night is run by a different chef with this year’s line-up including Jason Atherton, Lisa Goodwin-Allen and Tom Kitchin. Haworth, who will be in the kitchen for the final night of Obsession 18, says: ‘We’re bringing different styles of cooking, different cultures and different flavours to Northcote for both our guests and our kitchen team to experience. Sharing ideas has got to be one of the most important and inspirational things we can do in cookery and we’re in a privileged position that the Obsession 18 chefs are open to sharing their ideas with us.’
