Thank you for visiting my blog!

Over the last few years, I have been cooking for PureMalt staff, guests and events. I create every day food recipes for all to enjoy and often experiment with the addition of malt extracts in some of my dishes. East Lothian is a county full of great tasting and exciting local produce, which I will try to include in my food whenever possible.  It’s all about quality and flavour – hope you enjoy my recipes!

    Beef Wellington.



    An alternative to the Turkey for Christmas day.


    Ingredients depends on how many you are cooking for. I was catering for 8 so large piece of beef was required.

    • 1 X fillet of beef  (lean)
    • Large onion
    • 1 X packet chestnut mushrooms
    • 2 X garlic cloves
    • 2 X packets puff pastry
    • 1 X egg beaten
    • Worcester sauce

    7009-christmas-tree-sticker   First, heat oven to 180c fan

    7009-christmas-tree-stickerPeel and finely chop onion and sauté until soft and translucent in a little butter.

    7009-christmas-tree-stickerWhen nearly cooked, add minced garlic and finely chopped mushrooms. Cook for about 5/8 mins but do not burn add a couple dashes Worcester sauce then decant into sieve placed over a bowl and allow to drain and cool.

    7009-christmas-tree-stickerAllow beef fillet to stand at room temperature for at least 20 mins before cooking. Heat heavy based frying pan until smoking hot and then sear beef on all sides for a few minutes until it Browns all over. Season with salt and pepper then remove and allow to cool.

    7009-christmas-tree-stickerPrepare baking tin by greasing all over.

    7009-christmas-tree-stickerLay out pastry and if using two sheets glue together with beaten egg wash. Also apply egg wash to perimeter of pastry so that it sticks together when sealing up.

    7009-christmas-tree-stickerSpoon cold mushroom mix into centre of pastry and flatten out. When beef is cool place on top of mushroom mixture

    7009-christmas-tree-stickerGently roll up pastry to fully cover beef like a parcel.

    7009-christmas-tree-stickerBrush pastry all over with beaten egg wash

    7009-christmas-tree-stickerBake in oven for 20/30 mins depending on how rare you like your beef. Pastry should be golden and baked.

    7009-christmas-tree-stickerLastly, remove from tin onto warmed serving dish and serve with accompanied veg. I used boulangerie potatoes and spiced cabbage and gravy.
