Tiny violins please – today is the end of the first series! We’ve laughed – and eaten – a lot, thank you so much for tuning in.
The last recipes from the show are properly festive – a Beef Wellington that’s great as a Boxing Day main course (or Christmas day if you don’t fancy turkey), and a delicious homemade alternative to smoked salmon.
Wishing you and your families a wonderful holiday…
This Beef Wellington is the ultimate Sunday roast or Boxing Day meal. You could even serve it as an alternative to the traditional Christmas turkey. Fillet steak is an expensive cut of meat but it is incredibly luxurious and makes this a really special dish. Simon recommends wrapping the meat in pancakes to soak up the cooking juices and ensure a crisp pastry crust.
