Bring a large pan of water to the boil and cook the potatoes for 4 mins and remove. Cook the carrots for 4 mins and remove.  Cook the the peas and mange tout for 1 min and finally the onions for 8-10 mins.

Slice the lamb fillets into good sized chunks and season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Heat 2tbsp of oil in a large pan and fry the lamb pieces for 6 mins on turning to brown all sides and cook through. Place the lamb on a plate and keep warm, reserve any juices that flow from the meat.

Place the pan back on the heat, add the wine and meat juices and reduce to a syrupy consistency. Add 200ml of the chicken stock and reduce by half then whisk in the butter and season with salt and pepper to taste, then stir in the chopped tarragon. Pour the sauce into a small bowl and wipe the pan.

Heat another tablespoon of oil and add the potatoes and onions until they start to brown, then add the sugar and a pinch of salt. Cook until the vegetables are caramelised. Add the ccarrots and balsamic, simmer and coast the carrots until they start  to caramelise then add the stock. Bring to the boil and add the peas and mange tout and simmer until pan is almost dry.
