Fine Cooking has an excellent recipe with make ahead tips for Wellington. And there certainly is no Proscuitto in it. What the heck, whoever thought that up?

There was just a Food Network segment on that - and in fact, the restaurant made the Wellington 24 hours in advance and kept it in refrigeration until baking. It was an Alton Brown segment.

I prepped everything the night before I wanted to serve it -- the searing, mustard, duxelles, proscuitto, all of it -- and then left it well-wrapped in cling film in the fridge until the next day. I just had to wrap it in the puff pastry and bake it the day of, and it tasted great to me! Maybe letting it sit at room temperature a bit before wrapping in the puff pastry would have been beneficial, but I don't know about that for sure.

Lots of results on Google but Martha can (usually) be counted on to have a recipe that makes sense.
