Written by:

Nigel Haworth and Craig Bancroft (pictured) have announced the line-up of the 2011 Obsession food festival at their Michelin-starred Northcote in Lancashire.

The 10-day gastronomic celebration, which will run from 24 January to 2 February 2011, will feature some of the UK’s most talented chefs, who will each cook an exclusive “one night only” menu.

The line-up of participants includes Michelin-starred chefs Martin Wishart, Martin Burge, Simon Rogan, Lisa Allen and Sat Bains, as well as Kenny Atkinson, James Martin, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Claire Clark and Vivek Singh.

Bancroft, managing director of Northcote, commented: “The event develops its own momentum, in a way it’s a thank you to our customers for supporting us. It is also an opportunity for the staff to gain invaluable experience from some of the greatest chefs in the industry.”

Tickets for the event, priced £100, are available on 01254 244508.
