Beef Tenderloin is a favourite cut of beef for many. But it is so often misunderstood, and misused. So our in-house butcher Elyse is combining her talents with Chef Kathryn for this virtual cooking class on mastering Beef Tenderloin. Together Elyse and Kathryn will teach you how to trim and portion a whole tenderloin for maximum yield and enjoyment. During your online cooking class Elyse will teach you how to break your tenderloin into steaks, fillet and trim, then Kathryn will teach you some favourite ways to prepare and cook your tenderloin as she talks you through a simple Beef Tartare as well as how to assemble a Beef Wellington, and to pan sear Tenderloin Steaks and finish them with a Wild Mushroom Pan Sauce.
