    I think that most people would know that  mushroom wellington comes in a puff pastry (although I may be wrong about that…I come from foodies, and so maybe what I think is common knowledge isn’t), and so you could just say mushroom wellington.  If you are going to say more I’d go with “wrapped in puff pastry” or just “mushrooms, carmelized onions, garlic and herbs in puffed pasty”…you can leave out the wrapped.

    I believe the actual term is “puff pastry” not “puffed.”  I like nmsoonerbride’s suggestion about leaving out the verb, too.

    Also, I am eating a salad for lunch at my desk but reading this description made me even hungrier!  That sounds sooooo good!

    I agree I think people will know what Wellington is. And the term is puff pastry. And Can I be invited! I originally picked out venue because on the auto send menu hand chicken Wellington (and i really wanted it) But they dont have it anymore!

    While to some people, it may be a given that it is made with puff pastry, not everyone knows that since it may not be part of their regular menu. You should always be as descriptive as possible since some guests don’t like a certain preparation (sauce, etc) or cannot eat it for any reason, in which case they will be able to pick the other option if there is one available. That said, I would go with option #4.

    I would just write “…in puff pastry.” Do explain it, more info is always better than less info.

    I would nix the whole puff pastry part. All “wellingtons” are in puff pastry. You could write:

    Filled with mushrooms, caramelized onions, garlic and fresh herbs.
