You can't really go wrong with this stew. It goes in the oven and cooks itself. It can be made the day before and refrigerated overnight once cool, that really enhances the stew. You simply reheat it and 20 minutes before you are ready to add the dumplings which you should always make fresh.
To see how to make a bouquet garni, see our recipe and video.
Dumplings must be made fresh. You can vary the herbs used, try rosemary or thyme. You can add some crushed garlic too.
