Wellingtons: Who Are They and What Do They Do?
Wellingtons LA began in the kitchen of Arya and Anastasia Alexander on a fateful night during the COVID-19 pandemic. The couple, who were engaged to be married at the time, were looking for something interesting to eat for dinner. However, riddled with the paradox of choice, the couple couldn’t decide what to whip up that particular night. Much to their surprise, their growling stomachs quickly gave way to a recipe that would cater to more than just their hunger. The couple landed on Beef Wellington and realized the unending possibility it offered.
Over the course of three months, they embarked on a journey to create a unique version of the classic dish. From experimenting with new spices and herbs to serving their latest fusion to friends and family every week, the couple co-created a remarkable culinary experience. For a while, Arya and Anastasia operated in their kitchen and delivered Beef Wellingtons to a numbered few. However, it wasn’t long before their culinary creation grew in demand. With a generous addition of meat that’s perched in an enclosed layer of flaky and crispy puff pastry baked to perfection, the couple’s Wellingtons soon became a sensation.
Before long, the duo moved into a commercial kitchen in Los Angeles and started working on the marketing and reach of their product. The couple also began experimenting with different kinds of fillings and creating different versions of meat inside a flaky puff pastry. Some of their later additions included chicken pot pie layered in Salmon Wellys. Arya and Anastasia didn’t just grow their business and add a variety of options for consumers but also decided to tie the knot in June 2022.
