FFwD - Navarin Pritanier

This week's French Fridays with Dorie recipe is Navarin Pritanier, a lamb stew.  This is a gorgeous stew of lamb shoulder, braised onions, turnip and carrots, peas and potatoes in a rich sauce of tomato paste and stock. 

You were supposed to use 1 1/2 kg of lamb shoulder, but at $40, there was no way I was using that much, so I bought slightly less than half of that.  With all of those vegetables, I wasn't hungry:

I had never cooked a turnip before, but quite enjoyed it.  Judith Lucy asked the audience the same night what a turnip was, and the person she asked correctly identified it.   However, Judith reckons 65% of Australians can't correctly identify a turnip. Hmmm ...
