This week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe is called Navarin Printanier, which roughly translates to “Spring Lamb Stew”.
The day I made this stew I was
obsessed with reading The Hunger Games. The fact that I was making a lamb stew brought to mind the lamb stew that Katniss Everdeen enjoyed eating so much. The more I thought about it the more I realized how blessed I am to be able to make something like lamb stew for my family. That it’s not a luxury out of reach to me.
Navarin Printanier would have been a perfect dish for this cool spring we’ve been having. Except that the day I made it we were having hotter than normal temperatures. It was 90 degrees! I was so hot making this, and eating it did nothing too cool me down. It still tasted good!
Despite the heat, I loved Navarin Printanier. The lamb was tender, the broth rich and flavorful, and the vegetables were perfectly cooked.
