Traditional Beef Wellington

Tell us about your proudest moment – or humble failure – in this week’s baking challenge.

I'd never attempted Beef Wellington before so I basically stuck with Gordon Ramsey's recipe. I have made puff pastry before and together they were a hit! I had extra pastry left over so my son eagerly turned it into an appetizer of baked brie/red currant preserves on crackers. I feel like we should've thrown a party having such a beautiful, fancy meal!

Describe how you added a Wisconsin twist to your creation.

The recipe called for a variety of mushrooms so I used what we had left from the dried morels picked from our backyard this spring. I also picked fresh squash blossoms from our garden to serve on the side.

How did you do?

Absolutely lovely.
