Brilliant British Beef-Wellington
British Beef Wellington is the perfect centrepiece for a (socially distanced) home festive feast. Using one of our most precious cuts, the Chateaubriand (hand-cut middle section of the fillet) from our pedigree breeds of outdoor reared grass-fed beef.
The prestigious Wellington is delicately wrapped in a blanket of warm layered pastry, a decadent dressing of duxelle and cooked medium rare. It is a century old British showstopper and a traditional winter favourite. Our prestigious 'Chateau' is designed to indulge and delight two people per serving, for hosting larger parties consider creating separate parcels using additional produce.
For a fantastic guide to preparing and cooking a perfect Wellington we recommend following the Masterclass Guide from Gordon Ramsay.

Preparing your parcel: Our farmhouse kitchen tips
Season and rest your Chateau at room temperature prior to cooking
Wrapping the Wellington with cling film ensures a tighter parcel allowing more even cooking.
When you remove your Wellington from the oven, rest it on a cooking wire so the heat escapes equally and to keep pastry layers firm.
Cut into generous slices to avoid the Wellington falling apart.
