You Had Me-at Beef Wellington!


Hello everyone, welcome or welcome back to my blog! Today I’m very excited to share a Beef Wellington recipe with you all.

My school was having a culinary event, so, my brother and I wanted to participate as a team. There were two categories, sweet and savory, and we decided to go with savory. We brainstormed for a while, and then my brother suggested that we make Beef Wellington. He had wanted to attempt making Beef Wellington for a few weeks, and this was the perfect opportunity! My brother got this recipe from Gordon Ramsay’s YouTube channel, he loves watching cooking videos on there and and trying/modifying the recipes.

The event included making a PPT of our dish, with the ingredients, tools, recipe and some pictures! I’ve included some snippets below. The format of this post is slightly different than what I normally do!

This was our title page. We featured the pictures of our final product!
We set out our ingredients and photographed them, then made a list of everything in the picture. I decided to go with a “notebook paper” theme for our presentation.
This was our tools page. We decided to include a picture and a list like we did in the ingredients slide.
My brother was a trooper, and wrote out the recipe, all 32 steps. I continued our “notebook paper” theme from before. The final touch were the red pins. This recipe does have a lot of steps, but it’s totally worth it in the end. I also wanted to note that this recipe is for a rare beef wellington, I would suggest adding 5-10 minutes on the cooking time (with foil covering) if you prefer medium rare.
I took a page out of my blogging book and decided to add a section that includes the process and a brief explanation!
We finished of our presentation with some pictures of our final product, as well as a couple lines about our dish!

πŸ₯‡ Verdict: So, yesterday we were invited to a meeting to hear results on the event. It turns out that our entry got first place! We were so excited to win, since there were so many other participants. Overall this event was a lot of fun. It was nice to make a dish out of my comfort zone and it was awesome to see the creations of my classmates and other students! Plus I realized that cooking with my brother can be lots of fun! πŸ₯‡

🌼 I hope you guys enjoyed this post, I know it’s slightly different than what I normally do. Feel free to reach out with any questions or suggestions for the recipe! Thanks for reading, see you guys next week with another fun post! 🌼

  1. This post is so amazing!! It sounds soooo delicious and I just know that I need to try it now! Firstly, congratulationsssss! It doesn’t surprise me that you would win because you cook so well!! I had a tiny question tho, did you use store bought pastry or homemade, if it was store bought, then try and make homemade next time! Homemade pastries have a sense of a more delicious taste. That’s what I felt when I make pastries…I think this question is very thoughtful! Well, I think I would just sleepπŸ˜‚or if we are talking about being useful then, I would love to do more cooking because I absolutely love doing it!


    1. Thanks, Aarushi! Let me know how it goes when you try it. πŸ™‚ Thanks! I’m so happy that I could share my dish with other people too!
      We used a store bought pastry, and it was pretty delicious! 😁
      Thanks, I thought it was thoughtful and fun! haha, I think I might work on crafts or probably get HW done since I’d definitely want to do something useful with my time. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    1. Thank you, Nikki! It was my first time making it, but it’s at the top of my list too! πŸ™‚
      What type of filling do you like? I used mushroom, but I saw some variations with artichokes! πŸ˜ƒ


  2. Well done! I think you and your brother ought to try for the Master Chef series and who knows, you might be ranked up there. Keep your culinary skills going as it will come in handy when you start your own families.
