When we were kids this was one of our Dad’s big dishes and the whole house would smell of wine which we thought was so strange and foreign! Originally a French beef stew braised in red wine garnished with shallots here we use a selection of mushrooms instead which really give a wonderful texture and depth of flavour.

Cover with just boiled water and bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer until the potatoes are soft and well cooked.
