NAVARIN OF LAMB
COOKBOOK: Women’s Weekly - Celebrity Cookbook - At My Mother’s Knee
Navarin is a french form of slow cooking a stew.
There’s no time for slow-cooking in my household so I sped it up and it was absolutely delicious! The lamb was tender and full of flavour and it left the most amazing aroma in the kitchen that we couldn’t wait to sit down to eat! Serve it with crusty slices of bread and you have a winner on your hands.
A huge success!
