Beef Wellington is a beautiful dish that layers flavors, creating an entire meal in and of itself. Named after the first Duke of Wellington, Arthur Wellesley, who is revered as a national hero in England for defeating Napoleon at Waterloo. Wellesley was a fan of a dish made of beef, mushrooms, truffles, Madeira wine, and paté cooked in pastry, hence the similar Beef Wellington being named in his honor.
