  • 1 Donald Russell Beef Wellington Log,
  • defrosted and at room temperature
  • 200g small Ceps, Chanterelles or Morels, or a
  • mixture of wild mushrooms kept whole or
  • thickly sliced if preferred
  • Large knob butter
  • 2 crushed cloves of garlic
  • A generous splash of brandy
  • 12 tbsp single cream or crème fraîche
  • Coarse sea salt and black pepper
  • 2 tbsp fresh chives, finely chopped


  1. Preheat oven, with a baking tray in it, to 210°C / Fan 200°C / Gas 6.
  2. Brush Beef Wellington with beaten egg and bake as per your preference, for:

    30-33 minutes for Rare
    40-43 minutes for Medium
    50-53 minutes for Well Done
  3. Once cooked, set the Wellington aside to rest somewhere warm for 5-10 minutes
  4. In the meantime, sauté the mushrooms in the butter, until softened and slightly bronzed.
  5. Add in the garlic and continue to cook for 2 minutes
  6. Deglaze the pan with brandy, cooking the alcohol off for 1 minute.
  7. Stir in the cream and turn off the heat. Season to taste with coarse sea salt and a grind of black pepper, and finish with the chives.
  8. Using a serrated knife, gently cut the Wellington into thick slices to serve - this will ensure the flaky pastry doesn't get squashed, and the slices hold their neat shape
  9. Served on warmed plates, spooning the creamy mushroom sauce around the Wellington.
