Melt the butter in a large saucepan, add the leek, onion, celery and garlic and cook over low-medium heat for 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender but not coloured.

Add the potatoes, cover and cook for 10 minutes, then add enough stock to cover. Cook, covered, for 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
