Assembling beef wellington in advance?

Croissant | Dec 14, 2011 07:16 PM

Hi everyone -
Last year for Christmas dinner I attempted my first Beef Wellington (Cooks Illustrated recipe) and it was out of this world. I'd like to serve Beef Wellington again this year, but I'm not going to have the time to assemble it the day of. Would it be ok to assemble it the day before, leave it in the fridge, and just toss it in the oven on Christmas day? It may spend up to 24 hrs in the fridge before being cooked.

Thanks in advance for any advice!
