On this occasion, we will dig into one of the most delicious dishes of all, the Beef Wellington.

The origin of this dish

The Beef Wellington is one of the most elegant dishes in world cuisine. Considering that it contains the highest quality beef tenderloin, foie gras in some recipes and bits of cured ham, it is also among the most complex, discussed and expensive dishes.

Irish statesman and military man Sir Arthur Wellesley is believed to have been the inspiration for the preparation's name. Who served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and played a decisive role in the defeat of Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. It is worth mentioning that he was first known as Arthur Colley and then as Wellesley, who would later be distinguished as the Duke of Wellington (1769–1852).

His love of traveling and his residences in Portugal, Spain, India, France, Austria, and London throughout these times made him discover the delicious local cuisines. The “Steak Wellington” was created while he was serving as an envoy to the court of Louis XVIII in France.

The Duke was so enthusiastic about this dish that it was served to him numerous times and was given the new name “Filet de Boeuf Wellington”, which is still used today as “Filet or Beef Wellington”.

As well as defeating Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo, Arthur Wellesley is remembered for creating the incredible food that bears his name, often cooked with a stuffing of finely chopped mushrooms, bacon and fresh herbs.
