The beef wellington It is one of the classic in the kitchen for celebrations. It is a recipe from English cuisine that is made with a whole piece of sirloin or beef tenderloin wrapped in puff pastry and other ingredients.
The origin of the name may be related to Arthur Wellesley, the first Duke of Wellington who was fond of a dish of beef, truffles, mushrooms, Madeira wine and pâté cooked in batter, although there is no evidence to guarantee this. The truth is that it is an elegant recipe, ideal for celebrations such as Christmas or Birthdays. Kids will love this recipe.
