Christmas Pork Wellington

December 16, 2015

Your Christmas dinner is going to be stunning. This Christmas Pork Wellington is Wrapped in Foie Gras and mushrooms. Wrap it into a light, flaky puff pastry and your holiday meal will be amazing.

Wellington has a mysterious history. One story says it was invented  that the original Wellington (made with beef) is named after the 1st Duke of Wellington, Author Wellington. Unsubstantiated, but pretty fun, the truth is that no one is quite sure who came up this delightful combination. Holiday dinners will never be the same.
