1. Trim excess fat from lamb. Season with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Dust lightly with flour; shake off excess.

Add onion and garlic and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until onion is softened. Add Chianti, water, and bay leaves. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook 35 minutes. Add carrots and turnips and cook covered 15 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.
3. Meanwhile, in a large frying pan, heat remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring, 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Season with thyme and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add to stew and simmer 5 minutes.
