I've made this recipe a couple of times and it is a showstopper. My sister asked me for it and it just reminded me of how delicious it is - I may have to go in again! It's doable because of all the advance work - it's pretty cool to be able to take the time to comb your hair AND dazzle the diners.
I went to a considerable amount of trouble having to create an account and password and confirm it through email to come back here and sign in and find this recipe again just to rate and review it. Why? Because I think it's probably the single best thing I ever cooked and/or ate. Yes it's a bit fussy to prepare but worth it 100 times over.
The cooking time seems too long. My Wellingtons looked good but were very very well done. Followed recipe time. I would think 20 minutes at high temp and 10 at lower or 30 minutes at high would work better. Help!!!
Perfect. It came out spectacular. the template works wonderful and the freezing ahead is genius.
