Veronica from Chicago, IL
Veronica participated in 2018 Week 5: Pies, and attempted the Wellington Challenge. Let's see how they did!
How do you rate your baking performance?
Give your pie a name based on the ingredients and decoration.
Lentil Wellington. It’s carrots, lentils, white beans and mushroom duxelles wrapped in homemade rough puff pastry.
Tell us about your proudest moment — or humble failure — in this week’s baking challenge.
Slicing into the Wellington was my favorite part—miraculously it all just worked, and you could see the carrot flower in the middle!
Describe how you added a Wisconsin twist to your creation.
I went to Milwaukee this weekend for a puzzling convention and picked up some real Wisconsin butter for the homemade puff pastry—good butter makes a huge difference here!
