    3       lb           New potatoes
    2                    Garlic, finely chopped
    1                    Onion, cut in half and diced
    3       tb           Carrots, diced
    3       tb           Celery, coarsely chopped
    1                    Leek, julienned (white part)
    1       c            Dry white wine
    2 1/2   c            Vegetable consomme (see
                         ..recipe)
    1                    Thyme sprig
                         Pepper to taste
   16                    Asparagus tips, blanched
    1 1/2   oz           Fresh truffles
    2       tb           Chives, finely chopped
 
   Peel potatoes and dice into 1/2 inch cubes.  Transfer
   potatoes into a heavy saucepan and add garlic, onion,
   carrot, celery, leek, wine, consomme, thyme, and
   pepper. If potatoes are not covered completely with
   liquid, add water.  Cover and gently cook until
   aretender and stew is thick, about 25 - 30 minutes.
   (If stew becomes too dry add consomme or water)
   Ideally, potato stew should be served as soon   as it
   is ready. Serve it on a platter. Garnish with
    asparagus tips, shave truffles over the potatoes, and
   sprinkle with chives.
