Melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed pan and add the garlic and rosemary. Cook for 5 minutes. Add the celery and carrots and allow them to colour lightly. Add the madeira and reduce by half. Add 6 T. of chicken stock and 1 c. water, bring to a simmer, cover, and cook the vegetables until they’re nearly tender.
