This weekend sees the halfway point of Obsession, the annual gastronomic event at country-house hotel Northcote.

Obsession 15 sees a great variety of Michelin stars descend on Northcote for a series of showstopping dinners that showcase local produce with truly global flavour. Taking place across both the restaurant and the luxurious Louis Roederer Rooms, the line-up – featuring 25 chefs and 27 Michelin stars – brings together both national and international talent.

Michelin-star chef patron is welcoming some of the greatest names in gastronomy.On Saturday, Japanese chef Tsuyoshi Murakami will be attending from Brazil, and on Sunday, Kolkata-native , India’s most celebrated chef, will join the event from Bangkok, where his eponymous restaurant is known for successfully bridging the culinary divide between East and West.

Nigel says: “This year I decided it would be great to go global and get chefs from all over the world yet keep it regional. So each chef is cooking a dish using fantastic local ingredients from the North West.”

Paired flight options carefully curated by Director Of Wine Craig Bancroft and Master Sommelier Adam Pawlowski are available on enquiry, instilling even more of a sense of occasion for oenophiles. And with all the theatre of the Michelin-starred kitchen shown on screens and the chance to chat with chefs afterwards, diners are treated to a rare glimpse behind-the-scenes, too.

All tickets for this one-of-a-kind gourmet extravaganza are sold out, but FOUR will be keeping you up-to-date this weekend with sensational food images and reports from the events on the FOUR Instragramand Twitter.

Other guest chefs include: **, **, ***, *, Ken Hom, Vivek Singh and many more. For more information visitObsession2015.
