1. Cut into the beef fillet lengthwise, making sure not to cut all the way through, and stuff the slit with the liver pâté. Secure well with small wooden skewers. Season the meat with salt and pepper and wrap in bacon. Place in a roasting tin and dot with pats of butter.
2. Add the white wine, onion, celeriac, potatoes and mushrooms to the roasting tin. Season the vegetables with salt and pepper and roast, uncovered, in the oven for 50–60 minutes. Add the cognac and madeira towards the end of the cooking time.
3. Discard the bacon slices, remove the wooden skewers and carve the beef into slices. Serve with the vegetables.
