Beef Wellington

Have you seen that show airing on CTV right now called Masterchef Junior? If you haven’t, you must go watch because those kids are just unbelievably good… not to mention young! The show is hosted by Gordon Ramsay and one of his signature dishes is Beef Wellington. Basically consists with a piece of premium beef, surrounded by a layer of mushroom duxelles, followed by a layer of proscuitto, and lastly, wrapped in a layer of puff pastry, all baked to a golden perfection. Sounds decadent eh?
