My cooking tragedies
When I was still living at home, just before getting married, my parents gave me a beautiful full-color cookbook. As a thank you, I tried making Beef Wellington for my family. This dish has a pastry shell. I had never made pastry. It came out hard as a rock. The beef inside was delicious, though!
