Navarin is a French ragoût (stew) of lamb or mutton. If made with lamb and vegetables available fresh in the spring, it is called navarin printanier (spring stew).[1] While the name "navarin" has been suggested to honor the 1827 Battle of Navarino,[2] more probably it refers to the stew's traditional inclusion of turnipsnavet, in French.[3]
