Ultimate menu: Beef Wellington

We think Gordon’s signature beef Wellington really is the ultimate dish, so why not come and learn the ultimate menu for serving your own Welly feast at home. In this cooking class you’ll have plenty of time to master the Wellington itself, plus sauces and sides, all between making a stunning starter and dessert.

What to expect

In an Ultimate menu class we want to show you the best of the best. Classic dishes and recipes that will always impress, brought together in the most delicious meal you’ll love cooking for friends and family.

If you’re cooking a Wellington at home, you’ll want to go all-out and make it into an amazing meal. Our chefs have paired the Welly with a delicious seasonal starter and luxurious dessert to make the ultimate menu you can serve up for friends and family. You’ll have your starter for lunch while at the Academy, but have your finished dessert to take home with you, ready to complete your at home feast. 

With the Wellington, you’ll master all those classic layers of pastry, mushrooms, pancake and beef, served with sauces and sides, too. You’ll head home with your own Wellington ready to cook when you like, with slices from our chef’s own to try in class.
