The Art of Making a Beef Wellington


Learn the art that is making the perfect beef Wellington in this 6-hour class.

With origins shrouded in rumour, the beef Wellington is generally accepted as a British classic named in honour of the 1st Duke of Wellington, Arthur Wellesley, recognising his contribution to the victory at the Battle of Waterloo.

Ideal for complete beginners and culinary enthusiasts alike, this 1-day course will see participants create a mushroom Duxelles and a chicken mousse, prepare foie gras and a sauce, and assemble and bake a beef Wellington alongside a mixed roots gratin.
