Beef Wellington is one of those classic dishes that, done well, will make your cooking legendary. From impressing a date, to feeding a table of friends, it's a dinner people won't forget.
However, nailing the perfect Beef Wellington is not as easy as it looks, which is where the team at ChefSteps come in.
What is a Beef Wellington?
It's a tenderloin wrapped with chopped mushrooms and maybe a little prosciutto, and then pastry.
The team at ChefSteps step up with a carefully curated version of beef wellington that makes wrapping beef fillet in pastry look like a doddle. As they explain, this French classic is all about technique and patience.
With a little applied science, they show how to avoid soggy pastry and boast that even French great Joel Robuchon would be impressed. Fighting talk.
